Abstract

Corporate venturing activities can expand a firm’s business by creating new products and entering new markets. The literature suggests that entrepreneurial management should have a positive effect on corporate venturing activities and, as a consequence of this, a positive effect on a company's financial performance. By entrepreneurial management we mean an outward opportunity- seeking approach to management rather than a more inward- looking approach towards resources and competences currently controlled. Despite the prevalence of descriptions of entrepreneurial management and the alleged importance of such practices, we have little empirically based knowledge about its effects. This study contributes to filling this gap in the literature by examining the effect of entrepreneurial management on financial performance, using corporate venturing activities as an intermediary variable.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
