Challenges of quantitative research on internal corporate venturing

- By:

Courtesy of Inderscience Publishers

Internal corporate ventures are entrepreneurial initiatives that originate within the corporate structure (or within an existing business of the corporation) and are intended from inception as new businesses for the corporation. In spite of the long history associated with the phenomenon of internal corporate venturing, the literature provides surprisingly little quantitative evidence regarding factors important to internal corporate venturing success. Most of the literature is qualitative, while the few quantitative studies that do exist suffer from methodological problems that introduce contamination into their findings. The current paper outlines those methodological problems and proposes techniques for minimising their effects.
