When does start-up innovation spur the gale of creative destruction? by Joshua Gans( Book )
14 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 59 libraries worldwide
This paper examines the determinants of commercialisation strategy for start-up innovators. The authors examine whether the returns on innovation are earned through product market competition versus cooperation with established firms (through licensing, alliances or acquisition). The authors' hypotheses are that the relative returns to cooperation are increasing in (a) control over intellectual property rights, (b) low transaction costs, and (c) sunk costs associated with product market entry. Using a novel dataset of the commercialisation strategies of start-up innovators, the results suggest that the pro-competitive impact of start-up innovation - the gale of creative destruction - depends on imperfections in the market for ideas
The impact of uncertain intellectual property rights on the market for ideas : evidence from patent grant delays by Joshua Gans( Book )
9 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 18 libraries worldwide
This paper considers the impact of the intellectual property (IP) system on the timing of cooperation/licensing by start-up technology entrepreneurs. If the market for technology licenses is efficient, the timing of licensing is independent of whether IP has already been granted. In contrast, the need to disclosure complementary (yet unprotected) knowledge, asymmetric information, or search costs may retard efficient technology transfer. In these cases, reductions in uncertainty surrounding the scope and extent of IP rights may facilitate trade in the market for ideas. We employ a dataset combining information about cooperative licensing and the timing of patent allowances (the administrative event when patent rights are clarified). While pre-allowance licensing does occur, the hazard rate for achieving a cooperative licensing agreement significantly increases after patent allowance. Moreover, the impact of the patent system depends on the strategic and institutional environment in which firms operate. Patent allowance seems to play a particularly important role for technologies with longer technology lifecycles or that lack alternative mechanisms such as copyright, reputation, or brokers. The findings suggest that imperfections in the market for ideas may be important, and that formal IP rights may facilitate gains from technological trade

Dynamic commercialization strategies for disruptive technologies : evidence from the speech recognition industry by Matt Marx( Book )
4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
When startup innovation involves a potentially disruptive technology - initially lagging in the predominant performance metric, but with a potentially favorable trajectory of improvement - incumbents may be wary of engaging in cooperative commercialization with the startup. While the prevailing theory of disruptive innovation suggests that this will lead to (exclusively) competitive commercialization and the eventual replacement of incumbents, we consider a dynamic strategy involving product market entry before switching to a cooperative commercialization strategy. Empirical evidence from the automated speech recognition industry from 1952-2010 confirms the main prediction of the model

The role of venture capitalists in financing and developing high-technology start-ups by David H Hsu( Archival Material )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This dissertation addresses the interaction between venture capitalists (VCs) and start-up development through three essays. A common theme is that VCs serve important extra-financial and information brokering roles. In the first essay, using the setting of entrepreneurs obtaining financing from VCs, I empirically evaluate a market for affiliation with prominent partners. I hypothesize that the price for association is increasing in the prominence of the affiliation partner. By assembling a novel sample of start-ups with multiple financing offers, I analyze offers made by competing VCs at the first professional round of funding, holding characteristics of the start-up fixed. The estimated effects are economically significant, with a doubling of a VC's industrial deal experience in a start-up's industry, for example, associated with a six to nineteen percent discount in price paid to acquire start-up equity. The second essay, co-authored with Joshua Gans and Scott Stem, explores the determinants of commercialization strategy for start-up innovators by examining whether start-ups earn their returns to innovation through product market competition as opposed to cooperation with more established firms (either through licensing, strategic alliances or outright acquisition). Three variables in the start-up's commercialization environment affect the relative returns to a cooperative commercialization strategy: (a) the control of intellectual property rights (IPR), (b) low transaction costs, and (c) the cost of sunk assets associated with product market entry

A Search for Understanding. Analysis of Human Performance on Target Acquisition and Search Tasks using Eyetracker Data ( file )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
This paper provides an analysis of recent human field-of-view search performance experiments performed by the Night Vision Laboratory. The experiments used trained subjects in examining simulated infrared imagery and employed in the 4B experiment an eye-tracker to enable monItoring the subjects search process. The data will be analyzed in the context of a recently proposed extension of the standard or 'classical' human search model, called 'the neoclassical model.' The purpose of the analysis is to determine whether or not the assumptions underlying the neoclassical model and its detailed conclusions can be verified in actual experimental data. pg15. JMD
