  • How business opportunities constrain young technology-based firms from growing into medium-sized firms
  • 2005
  • Ingår i: Small Business Economics. - : Springer. - 1573-0913 .- 0921-898X. ; 24:2, s. 113-129
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • This paper analyses how the novelty of business opportunities at start-up constrains young technology-based firms from attaining substantial growth and becoming medium-sized. Data from 262 young Swedish technologybased firms are used to estimate a logit regression model relating different types of opportunities to the probability of becoming medium-sized. The results show that firms which seek to exploit opportunities based on new market knowledge are less likely to attain substantial growth than firms that seek to exploit opportunities based on existing market knowledge. The former class of firms can nevertheless increase the probability of such growth by actively seeking external financing.

  • How Different? Comparing the Roles of Design in Service Innovation in Nordic and American New Technology-Based Firms
  • 2008
  • Ingår i: Design Studies. - 0142-694X. ; 29:5, s. 478-499
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • This paper explores differences in the use of design in service innovation in Nordic and American new technology-based firms and is based on a systematic qualitative comparison of case data collected on eight service innovation projects in each of the locations. Differences were expected due to these two locations' disparity in terms of agglomeration of technology-based firms and access to design resources. The results of the comparison indicate that there are more similarities than there are differences in how design is used in service innovation in these two locations. Possible explanations are explored and implications suggested.

  • Oil in Water? Explaining Differences in Aesthetic Design Emphasis in New Technology-based Firms
  • 2008
  • Ingår i: Technovation. - 0166-4972. ; 28, s. 464-471
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The purpose of this research is to investigate how differences in aesthetic design emphasis among new technology-based firms (NTBFs) can be explained. Four hypotheses are developed based on a synthesis of existing research in the fields of design, strategy and entrepreneurship. The hypotheses are tested based on a survey of 103 NTBFs. The results of the research indicate that aesthetic design emphasis is significantly related with the importance of aesthetic design in a firm's chosen sector, which can be classified as a positioning factor. Aesthetic design emphasis is also significantly related with founder characteristics, which are resources factors, namely founders’ technical education and founders’ experience of sales and marketing, respectively. The results of the research lend some support to the anecdotal notion that engineers do not appreciate the value of aesthetic design and suggest that the source of this lack of appreciation is their education.

  • On the Interaction between the Growth Process and the Development of Technical Knowledge in Young and Growing Technology-Based Firms
  • 2005
  • Ingår i: Technovation. - 0166-4972. ; 25:3, s. 223-235
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • This paper investigates the tensions that exist in young and growing technology-based firms between (1) increasing technological opportunities for further growth and (2) the costs of developing these opportunities.Data from 70 medium-sized, young technology-based firms were used to test two hypotheses concerning changes in the number of separate fields of technical knowledge during growth. Increasing the number of separate fields of technical knowledge increases the technological opportunities available to the firm, but increases the cost of developing and integrating knowledge from multiple fields.The results indicate that tensions between technological opportunities and the costs of technological development in young technology-based firms are created due to both the advances in science and technology and the firms’ growth process itself.
