  • Competitive strategies of knowledge and innovation commercialization: a unified swot and fuzzy ahp approach

The first and relevant criteria as well as sub-criteria are identified using SWOT analysis.

  • Sociology of innovation: Social construction of technology perspective

  • New venture creation: How start-ups grow?

    Start-ups, often seen as sources of innovation and change, are prone to failure and accordingly they are attracting considerable attention not least from policy makers and Government officials. However, the various new venture creation studies that have emerged since the early 1980s lack cohesiveness, and the domain remains controversial. This article not only exposes the limitations of the existing body of understanding on the topic but attempts to develop a more comprehensive and comprehendible framework for start up (new venture) creation. To do so it uses the frameworks proposed by Whetten, and March and Smith to develop 11 propositions. The resultant model suggests that the creation of a start up involves the identification of an idea or opportunity by an entrepreneur who subsequen...
