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: A Challenging European Research Project to Develop New Tiny Microscopes

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.

To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
