Title: How Prior Corporate Venture Capital Investments Shape Technological Alliances: A Real Options Approach
Authors: Van de Vrande, Vareska
Issue Date: 2013
Citation: ENTREPRENEURSHIP THEORY AND PRACTICE, 37 (5), p. 1019-1043
Abstract: This article investigates how prior corporate venture capital (CVC) relationships between two firms affect the likelihood of their subsequently entering a strategic alliance. Creating a portfolio of CVC investments provides the investing firm with a set of opportunities that can be pursued once the technological and market uncertainty have been reduced. If the technology appears to be promising, a follow-on investment, such as a strategic alliance, is made to ensure the transfer of the technological knowledge. This article shows that prior CVC investments can play a role in the formation of strategic alliances and investigates the conditions under which they are most likely to do so.
