Product, Operation and Market Strategies of Technology-Intensive Born Globals

23.09.2005


The doctoral dissertation of Gilad Sperling, MBA, "Product, Operation and Market Strategies of Technology-Intensive Born Globals. The case of Israeli Telecommunication Born Globals," in the field of International Business, will be publicly examined on Friday, September 23, 2005, at the Helsinki School of Economics (HSE). The opponent is Senior Lecturer, Dr. Tamar Almor-Ellemers (Tel Aviv University, College of Management) and the custos is Emeritus Professor Reijo Luostarinen (HSE).



The study analyses the product, operation, and market strategies of technology-intensive Born Global companies from small open economies and explains their rapid globalization process. Born Global firms aim at the global market right from inception and start their globalization immediately without any preceding domestic operations, simultaneously with domestic business, or exceptionally soon after domestic operations. Conceptual holistic frameworks have been developed on the basis of four groups of factors including: industry, country, company, and founders. The frameworks draw on Professor Reijo Luostarinen’s earlier work on the internationalization of Finnish firms.

In the empirical part, the globalization process and POM strategies of five Israeli telecommunication Born Globals were analyzed. Factors behind the choice of a global strategy from inception were identified. The study found that the characteristics of the founder, founders’ home country, and the available financing options and choices thereof play an important role in the globalization strategies and process of the Israeli technology-intensive Born Globals. Product, customer, operation, and market strategies pattern was identified. Finally the study compared its findings with findings of similar research on Finnish Born Globals carried out in the Helsinki School of Economics.


This study is part of the Born Global project in the LIIKE research program. LIIKE is the first national research program in the field of business studies funded by the Academy of Finland and the National Technology Agency Tekes.

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

Im Focus: Fraunhofer ISE Develops Highly Compact, High Frequency DC/DC Converter for Aviation

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
