Case studies in international entrepreneurship : managing and financing ventures in the global economy by Walter Kuemmerle( Book )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of 29 cases is designed for instructors who want to bring real situations into their entrepreneurial finance or management courses. Each case speaks to students who are planning to start companies or join venture capital/private equity firms, investment banks, or multinational companies. Students will learn about entrepreneurial issues by comparing and contrasting opportunities, financing contexts, valuation approaches, and entrepreneurs in the US and other countries. These case studies present a broad, integrated approach to entrepreneurial ventures. They not only consider a wide range of business models, but also the people and relationships that make them work."--Jacket

International entrepreneurial finance by Walter Kuemmerle( )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Walter Kuemmerle uses this lecture to discuss the question of how entrepreneurial managers and their financers make resource, acquisition, and investment decisions in an international context. To start, a series of entrepreneurial ventures that serve as research sites are identified, including CD metallization company Singulus, Argentinian mail-order office supply distribution start-up Officenet, and motorcycle company Ducati. Three central ideas to international entrepreneurial finance include the idea that local context matters, that a global perspective of opportunities increases venture performance, and that a global perspective on access to resources strengthens the deal structure
Home base and knowledge management in international ventures by Walter Kuemmerle( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper examines the scope and sequence of international activities carried out by nascent international ventures. We use a knowledge-management framework, developed in prior research on multinational firms, to analyze the inception and growth of six international ventures. Our analysis suggests that international ventures are conceived as 'international' because cross-border activities increase the chances of venture survival and growth. We also find that, in the early stages of international ventures, cross-border activities that augment the venture's knowledge base are more prevalent than cross-border activities that exploit the venture's knowledge base

Functional versus capability-oriented innovation management by Walter Kuemmerle( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper argues that innovation management in multinational firms can be enhanced by distinguishing two types of geographically dispersed facilities: capability-augmenting ones and capability-exploiting ones. The paper shows that this distinction rather than the established distinction of research sites versus development sites facilitates resource allocation decisions and strategic cooperation with local knowledge providers. An analysis of 8 matched case studies as well as a statistical analysis with 156 R & D sites supports this argument

Home base and foreign direct investment in research and development : an investigation into the international allocation of research activity by multinational enterprises : a thesis by Walter Kuemmerle( )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Foreign direct investment (FDI) in research and development (R & D) is an increasingly important element of overall firm strategy in technologically intensive industries. These essays examine a number of questions related to FDI in R & D from both a theoretical and an empirical perspective. The first essay analyzes the international dispersion and location of corporate R & D activities from a theoretical perspective. The second essay examines the determinants of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in research and development laboratories by 32 multinational enterprises in the pharmaceutical and electronics industries. The third essay examines the relationship between performance and size of R & D laboratories operated abroad. The fourth essay investigates the resource allocation process for research and development laboratories abroad from an administrative perspective
Asset accumulation, interdependence and technological change : evidence from pharmaceutical drug discovery by Stefan H Thomke( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the resource-based view has been written about extensively, the process by which firm assets are accumulated has not been explored in detail. That is, we know little about the micro-level mechanisms by which assets are built, nor do we have sufficient empirical evidence why some assets are more difficult to trade, imitate or substitute. In this paper, we attempt to provide a better understanding of asset accumulation via an empirical research program in pharmaceutical drug discovery. Using a combination of field research, discovery data from nine pharmaceutical firms and data on 218 technology alliances, three causes affecting asset accumulation are identified and described. We propose that the complex interactions of these factors can give rise to imperfections in factor markets. Finally, implications for further research are discussed as well

Strategic assets, interdependence and technological change : an empirical investigation in pharmaceutical drug discovery by Stefan H Thomke( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the significance of the resource-based perspective to strategic thinking has been made clear and written about extensively, the detailed dynamics through which strategic assets are built and accumulated inside firms is still somewhat unclear. Particularly the link between asset accumulation and interdependence raises important research questions: That is, if some assets are complementary (substitutes) and thus increase (decrease) in value when brought together, then to what extent does this influence a firm's strategy in accumulating these assets. In this paper, we explore these matters by means of anempirical study of pharmaceutical drug discovery where we investigated (1) the dynamics of three interdependent assets (chemical libraries, combinatorial chemistry, and high-throughput screening); (2) the resulting strategies taken by firms and the extent to which those firms benefit from bringing complementary assets together when they are developed in and outside firm boundaries; (3) and the role of structural inertia in the accumulation of interdependent assets under technological change. Particularly the study of inertia resulted in empirical findings that support earlier theoretical work on organizational change: While the peripheral parts of organizations were very quick to respond to technological change, the project-level adoption at the firms₂ core faced some opposition

The drivers of foreign direct investment into research and development : an empirical investigation by Walter Kuemmerle( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper examines the determinants of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in research and development laboratories by 32 multinational enterprises in the pharmaceutical and electonics industries. The paper applies a dichotomous set of motives for FDI. Results from an econometric analysis of 136 laboratory investments show that relative market size and relative strength of a country's science base determine whether FDI in R & D is carried out in order to exploit firm specific advantages or in order to build up new firm specific advantages. This holds true in similar form for Japanese, European and US firms and across the two industries
