While the direct impact of innovation on growth has been examined in entrepreneurship literature, the underlying channels of influence have remained largely unexplored. This article draws upon Behavioral Reasoning Theory to examine whether growth intention is the pathway through which product, process and organizational innovations influence venture growth or not. Results from the analysis of a dataset of 20,472 French new ventures reveal that: (1) product, process and organizational innovations have a positive impact on sales revenue growth; (2) growth intention has a positive impact on sales revenue growth; and (3) growth intention mediates the effects of product and organizational innovations on sales revenue growth. These findings have implications for a more balanced and nuanced view on how innovations impact new venture growth. [less ▲]

Macro-economic policies such as public financing seek to push the development and introduction of innovations; however, entrepreneurs also need support in their “day-to-day” activities to improve their capability to launch innovations. As this micro-level perspective is rarely studied, we analyze both the micro and macro levels by examining the effects of the entrepreneurs’ individual intention to innovate and public financing. Additionally, we include the meso level, representing entrepreneurs’ network. Entrepreneurs are embedded in social spheres in which they capture resources and identify opportunities. But not all entrepreneurs are equally well supported, and some tend to be completely isolated. We thus focus on multilevel factors explaining new product or service launching in new ventures. Drawing on data of 48,251 French new ventures, we reveal that innovation intention and public financing positively impact new ventures’ product and service innovation launching, while entrepreneurs’ isolation has a negative effect. We also highlight two interaction effects that enhance the multilevel effects of innovation antecedents. [less ▲]

Da Unternehmertum und Innovationen stark miteinander verknüpft sind, wird in dieser Studie der Zusammenhang zwischen ursprünglichen Gründungsmotivationen von Unternehmern und deren tatsächlichen Produktinnovationen innerhalb der ersten Gründungsjahre untersucht. Basierend auf einer Stichprobe der französischen SINE Datenbank, welche von dem französischen Nationalen Institut für Statistik und Wirtschaftsplanung zur Verfügung gestellt wurde, wird gezeigt, dass verschiedene Gründungsmotivationen das Produktinnovationsverhalten von Start-ups positiv beeinflussen und dass Gründungsmotivationen damit auch nach der Gründung noch Nachfolgen haben können. So zeigen die Ergebnisse, dass Gründungsmotivationen wie unternehmerisches Denken und Handeln, Verbessern der finanziellen Position, Nutzen einer Geschäftschance oder –Idee und Arbeitslosigkeit einen signifikant positiven Effekt auf Produktinnovation im frisch gegründeten Unternehmen ausüben.

Although it is argued that competitiveness and successful performance in the long-term is facilitated if ventures engage in innovations in diverse domains (e.g. product, process, production, administration, etc.), the development of diversified innovation has been rarely analyzed. As the entrepreneurs’ initial motivations to startup are likely to influence their subsequent entrepreneurial behavior, this study aims to explore whether and how entrepreneurial motivations affect diversified innovation behavior in startups. Using data on over 48.000 French startups, we present novel insights into the consequences of entrepreneurial motivation for innovation behavior. In fact, we find that distinct startup motivations can have different effects on the development of diverse innovations. As such, our findings contribute to extant research on innovation development of startups and advance the present understanding of the determinants of startups’ innovative behavior [less ▲]

Legitimacy is crucial for entrepreneurs. It is the cornerstone for creating relationships with stakeholders and mitigating resource constraints. But, other-referent legitimacy is also related to the cognitive image of individual legitimacy. Drawing on the identity-based model of legitimacy, we argue that personality traits (big five) and social capital (strong ties) of entrepreneurs impact self-perceived legitimacy of entrepreneurs. Based on survey data of 98 German private physicians, this paper examines antecedents of self-perceived legitimacy towards two main stakeholders: patients and peers. We find that high levels of agreeableness stimulate self-perceived legitimacy towards patients and peers, whereas openness to experience solely influences physicians’ self-perceived legitimacy towards patients. In addition, our results highlight the contingent effect of personality traits by underlining the role of strong ties as moderator of the relationship between personality traits and the self-perceived legitimacy. By identifying these configurations we contribute to the literature on entrepreneurship with a refined perspective of antecedents of self-perceived legitimacy. Moreover, we give recommendations on how private physicians can benefit from two personality traits – agreeableness and openness to experience – and how they can manage weak and strong ties in order to diffuse their reputation.

Research on small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) has done little to explore the drivers of coopetition. However, this issue is crucial for practitioners in charge of implementing the coopetition process. We address this gap by exploring the drivers of coopetition among SMEs through a longitudinal case study based on 34 interviews along with informal conversations in the French wine cluster of Pic Saint-Loup. We find that the coopetition process (1) occurs in stages driven by specific environmental factors and (2) is facilitated by the social capital of cluster members, particularly the central member (owner-manager), which is key to the success of each coopetition stage. Our results provide a better understanding of wine cluster development and the inducement of SME coopetition. [less ▲]

As an entrepreneurial activity, implementing coopetition involves changing the relationships between players and modifying deeply their frames of reference. Our goal is to investigate the change process associated with the implementation of coopetition as institutional change. By conducting fifty-nine interviews and many observations with an abductive grounded theory approach, we uncover four phases of the coopetition process between winemakers and highlight the ability of these entrepreneurs to skillfully combine institutional logics to achieve economic performance. We discuss the implications of our findings for the literature on coopetition and institutional entrepreneurs’ roles in the coopetition process. [less ▲]

Small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are particularly vulnerable to environmental forces and may therefore seek to supplement their insufficient resources and reduce uncertainty by adopting coopetition strategies. This longitudinal study of a wine producers union in Pic Saint-Loup is based on forty-five interviews conducted during multiple data collection moments and shows how competing SMEs were able to develop cooperative strategies. We describe the three phases in the development of SME coopetition, as well as the role of stakeholders. We then present the tertius strategies that the SME managers chose to implement. [less ▲]

This study aimed to determine whether women entrepreneurs are satisfied with belonging to a women’s network, as this issue is crucial for network performance and legitimacy. We tested our hypotheses on a sample of 127 French women entrepreneurs who belonged to women's networks using multiple regression analysis. We showed that these women entrepreneurs were satisfied when they developed strong ties and when cliques in the network were limited. Education had a negative effect: the higher the educational level, the less satisfaction with their networks the women reported. Our survey findings suggest ways that managers can optimize network satisfaction to keep current members while continuing to add new ones: create an environment with no cliques where members can develop strong ties. This means connecting members with similar values or status and common interests, while making sure that cliques do not develop. To our knowledge, satisfaction with professional women’s networks has never been studied. We highlight the role of strong ties in these networks and identify the contingent effect of cliques.

L’objectif de cet article est d’étudier le rôle de la centralité dans la reconfiguration de l’équipe entrepreneuriale en termes de leadership. Utilisant la théorie des réseaux sociaux, nous soulignons l’importance des relations interpersonnelles dans la TPE d’une part, et le rôle de la centralité des acteurs dans le choix du leader de l’organisation, d’autre part. Prenant le cas d’une structure en participation (SEP) en croissance et composée de 11 médecins français, nous explorons, à partir d’entretiens semi-directifs et d’analyse de la centralité réalisée sous UCINET, les enjeux du changement de management et l’importance de la centralité dans le choix du directeur. Cette centralité de degré est multidimensionnelle. En effet, elle prend en compte l’influence de l’acteur auprès des autres, sa capacité à donner des conseils et sa proximité émotionnelle avec ses collaborateurs. Deux des trois dimensions corroborent notre proposition sous-jacente selon laquelle l’acteur le plus central devient le directeur naturel de la TPE. [less ▲]

Market knowledge (MK) improves firm performance, yet knowledge of how MK develops remains sparse. In small and medium-sized enterprises, MK likely depends on the personal dispositions of CEOs. This study draws on personality research to theorize that CEOs' personality traits influence the intensity of seeking (openness and conscientiousness), the opportunity to access (extraversion), or the accuracy of processing (agreeableness and emotional stability) market information. A fuzzy set qualitative comparative analysis of 409 CEOs reveals two equifinal configurations of traits leading to high MK, both of which include traits favoring accuracy, suggesting their particular importance. The findings provide new understanding of the antecedents of MK and have conceptual implications for the study of CEOs' personality in general. [less ▲]
