Abstract [en]

PURPOSE:

The purpose of this study is shed light on the underlying forces behind entrepreneurship within a regional innovation system (RIS) in a remote rural region. The authors examine the following questions: Which are the main underlying forces behind the entrepreneurial process in a rural RIS characterized by traditionally low-tech, small-scale businesses? How can the development of a low-tech regional innovation system be conceptualized?

DESIGN/METHODOLOGY/APPROACH

The design of the study is based on entrepreneurship theory. Data analysis followed practices used in phenomenography, a research approach used to analyse and identify commonalities and variations in populations' perceptions of a certain phenomenon. Data are composed using semi-structured interviews and a database composed of company information of all firms in the population.

FINDINGS

A proactive mobilization of regional stakeholders and resources can be an important driving force behind the entrepreneurial process and generation of a rural RIS. Innovation can be generated within low-tech industries turning the rural context into an asset. An RIS in a remote rural context can be initiated and orchestrated by regional authorities, but knowledge brokering and orchestration can also be managed by networks of small-scale businesses brought together by mutual benefit and common interests.

RESEARCH LIMITATIONS/IMPLICATIONS

Regional innovation systems theory is most often used to study high-tech industries. But by combining regional innovation systems with rural entrepreneurship and entrepreneurship context theory is a fruitful avenue to understand the role of rural entrepreneurship in regional development, even in remote and peripheral regions. Innovation does not need to entail high-tech international environments; it can appear as the result of efforts in low-tech industries in rural and remote environments. The authors’ findings need to be scrutinized; therefore, the authors call for more research on regional innovation systems in rural environments.

PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS

It is possible for regional authorities to orchestrate a development process through the actions of a strong regional agent but also by supporting the creation of networks of small businesses that are built on trust and common interests.

ORIGINALITY/VALUE

This study contributes to the literature with a new perspective to the study of entrepreneurship and of regional innovation systems. Entrepreneurship research with focus on rural contexts most often highlight limits to entrepreneurship and see entrepreneurship as “just running a business”. A perspective that starts from innovation and innovative behaviour, despite the rural context and embedded resources, helps to generate new knowledge that can enrich the understanding of entrepreneurship and also be the foundation for more precise business development policies in rural settings.

Abstract [en]

The business landscape has significantly changed in the last few years due to unforeseen incidents such as the recent pandemic and war in Europe. While such incidents have interrupted or even impaired economies and businesses, they have also accelerated digitalization. Parallel to this, many countries have started moving towards sustainability and realized the importance of circularity on a large scale. Thus, international industrial firms must deal with new regulations. Despite the growth of research on digitalization and circular economy, our understanding of international industrial manufacturers and their business models, in particular, is limited. Thus, this research aims to study international industrial manufacturers digitally enabled circular business models. A case study approach covered a case company, six partners, three sister companies, and the parent company. The findings reveal the characteristics of a digitally enabled circular business model and its outcomes, including resource utilization, supply chain, and sustainable efficiency. Theoretical and managerial implications are discussed.

Abstract [en]

This study investigates how internationally active firms’ international promotion strategy is linked to international marketing performance. It addresses the issue of effectively balancing the economic benefits of standardized strategies with the potential performance gains achieved when adapting to local customer preferences and market situations. Based on contingency theory and the strategic fit paradigm, we argue that there is no panacea solution to the promotion strategy standardization versus adaptation debate. Instead, our empirical results from 298 international entrepreneurial product-market ventures based in Sweden support the view that international firms must fit the promotion strategy to relevant macro- and micro-environmental conditions in order to optimize their international marketing performance. Our results caution against assuming that all environmental factors exert an equivalent effect on the level of international promotion strategy standardization and reveal that neither standardization nor adaptation is a superior strategy in pursuing international marketing performance.

Abstract [en]

Building on the negative to mixed effects of natural disasters on entrepreneurial activity, we posit that regional rugged individualism attenuates the decline in business activity following natural disasters. We find that greater property damage from natural disasters in the presence of greater rugged individualism does not affect the establishment entry rate. However, it lowers the decline in establishment exit rates and the job reallocation rate decline by small effect sizes (0.3%). The findings show that regional individualism in the face of natural disasters does not increase entrepreneurial activity but abates the decline in entrepreneurial activity.

Abstract [en]

Complementing growing interest in entrepreneurship and well-being, we apply a conceptualization of compensating income variation (CIV) – how much extra income an individual would require offsetting the loss in subjective well-being from a unit decline in health – in health economics to entrepreneurship. We hypothesize and test the extent of the CIV among the self-employed and whether the CIV varies by sex and age. We use a Bayesian vector auto-regression model in the Household, Income, and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) Survey data. We find that the CIV for the self-employed (employed) was AUD 10,315 (AUD 6,873) annually for a unit decrease in subjective well-being. We do not find significant differences in the CIV among the self-employed by sex and age. The findings show that the self-employed requires higher compensatory income to accept poorer health.

Abstract [en]

Supporting fast and extensive data transfer, connectivity technologies entail opportunities for stronger inter-firm collaboration and new value propositions, resulting in business model innovation. Whereas prior research has mainly focused on connectivity-induced changes in the business models of ecosystem orchestrators, we turn our attention to (prospective) ecosystem complementors. We examine how digital service providers can configure business model mechanisms to enter an ecosystem and connect themselves to its value proposition. Based on an explorative qualitative study of four cases in mobility, we develop four archetypical connection strategies for complementors. We observe that the four archetypes differ in their implications for the ecosystem value proposition, for the role of other actors in the ecosystem, and the triple-bottom-line performance of the ecosystem. Connectivity technologies can combine economic, environmental, and social benefits.

Abstract [en]

The study proposes the notion of coopetition capability as an ability to cooperate and compete with rival firms simultaneously. We draw on the tenets of the resource-based and dynamic capability theories as well as insights from in-depth qualitative studies of small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) in two Sub-Saharan African markets - Kenya and Zambia - to explore the conceptual domain of the coopetitive capability phenomenon. We further examine how external and internal environmental forces trigger the development of coopetition capability, and how coopetitive capability contributes to firm success outcomes. Findings from the study indicate that coopetitive capability is manifested in SMEs' ability to proactively develop, coordinate, and learn from portfolios of inter-firm relationships with competitors. The study further finds that interactivities between regulatory requirements, customer demands, and firm-specific learning processes are major triggers of SMEs' propensities to develop and benefit from coopetition capability. The study extends the literature on inter-organizational relationships by highlighting the conceptual domain and drivers of coopetition capability.

Abstract [en]

In recent years, US states have introduced or passed consumer privacy laws. We explore the passage (June 28, 2018) and enforcement (January 1, 2020) of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) to ask whether such laws influence firm valuation. Based on organizational complexity and intangibility frameworks in the marketing literature, the law's passage on June 28, 2018 did not have a meaningful stock market reaction in a sample of retail firms. Firms with higher intangibility or those with higher complexity and intangibility realized positive cumulative abnormal returns and Buy-and-Hold Abnormal Returns (BHAR). The findings are consistent after controlling for the text-based measures of privacy agreements, alternative measures of intangibility, and other robustness checks. Using the January 1, 2020, enforcement date, there were no meaningful changes in bounce rates and traffic from desktops or mobiles. The findings carry implications for policy makers, practitioners, and consumers.

Abstract [en]

Brand authenticity has attracted the growing attention of academics and practitioners for two decades. This study contributes to brand management literature by empirically investigating the impact of brand authenticity on purchase intentions through perceived value (functional, emotional, and social) and brand forgiveness using a 2 x 2 between-subjects experimental design with a sample of consumers from the UK and Turkey. The moderating role of cross-cultural happiness on the link between perceived value and brand forgiveness is also examined. Moderated mediation results demonstrate that brand authenticity positively affects brand forgiveness, and this effect is mediated by perceived value. In addition, cross-cultural happiness positively moderates the impact of perceived value on brand forgiveness. Findings further reveal a serial mediating effect of brand authenticity on purchase intentions via perceived value and brand forgiveness. This study has important theoretical implications and offers international brand and marketing managers practical insights.

Abstract [en]

The aim is to advance the conceptualisation of island entrepreneurship by investigating how theisland context, for example, industry characteristics, social context and formal and informal institutions,influences the development of artisan food businesses in that context. An applied, qualitative and participatory research approach wasimplemented. Data were collected during a business development process focusing on food artisans in theAland Islands. In total, 19 business owners participated in the process. Key informants and public officers wereinterviewed, and the literature was reviewed. Interviews were analysed using phenomenography to identifyrepresentative categories, and the literature was analysed using content analysis. Island characteristics and context, local institutions, the quality of social capital and genderedinstitutions influence business activities positively and negatively. Island entrepreneurship entails mobilisingagencies to find innovative solutions that enable businesses to overcome obstacles. Most previous research treats business activities as entrepreneurship; however, as self-employment is essential in the island context,it should be highlighted in future studies. This study illustrates how the island context influences the businessdevelopment of small firms. Results indicate that local policies (1) benefitting female entrepreneurs, (2)supporting local businesses and (3) promoting locally produced artisan food could generate benefits for theentire artisan food businesses. Local policies that (1) benefit female entrepreneurs, (2) support local businesses and(3) promote locally produced artisan food have the potential to generate benefits for the entire trade. Policies canbenefit from an understanding of the role played by different ecosystem actors. Promoting self-employmentcan generate benefits for the local entrepreneurial ecosystem by providing agglomeration and helping to solvesome challenges caused by the characteristics of islands. Empirically, this research enhances the knowledge of post-productive responses in theisland context. Theoretically, the study advances the conceptualisation of research on the islandentrepreneurship context and the local food debate.
