Effects of internal and external resource dimensions on the business performance of new technology-based firms
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2018

This study examines the effects of new technology-based firms (NTBFs) internal and external resources on their early business performance. Based on a large unique dataset of 401 newly started NTBFs, we find that founders’ business experience and their firms’ proximity to other firms positively affect early business performance. Growth orientation is found to be negatively related to business performance, which might suggest a certain level of over-optimism among entrepreneurs with aspiration to grow fast.
