We explore the relationship between the characteristics of social capital, the speed of access to medical technologies and the role of gender in a private practice context. Our findings from a sample of 98 German private practitioners show that: (a) being a woman has an overall negative impact on the speed of access to medical technologies; (b) private practitioners with strong social network ties obtain quicker access to medical technologies than do those with weak ties; (c) men relying on their weak ties perform better than women who do so. In contrast, we observe that women relying on strong ties outperform their male counterparts in terms of speed of access to medical technologies. [less ▲]

While the direct influence of growth intention on small business growth has been examined in entrepreneurship literature, little research distinguishes the different forms of growth and how they are interrelated. This article draws upon growth intention to examine whether firm size growth is the channel through which growth intention influences sales revenue growth. Results from the analysis of a dataset of 20,472 French new ventures reveal that: (1) growth intention has a positive impact on sales revenue growth; (2) firm size growth has a positive impact on sales revenue growth; and (3) firm size growth mediates the effect of growth intention on sales revenue growth. These findings show that firm size growth is a means to achieve sales revenue growth and not only a finality per se. [less ▲]

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 ▲]

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.

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.

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 ▲]

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 ▲]
