Welcome to the June issue of the Technology Innovation Management Review. We welcome your comments on the articles in this issue as well as suggestions for future article topics and issue themes.

Introduction

Do we need another definition in entrepreneurship research? We argue that at least technology entrepreneurship deserves a revision. Indeed, Mosey, Guerrero, and Greenman (2017) have stated that, after two decades of interest and research contributions in the field, we all can now take stock of what has been achieved, what needs to be revisited, and what is still missing. We have reached a consolidation stage in technology entrepreneurship research.

Introduction

Today, commercialization, or “going to market” (Friedman, 2002),  is particularly challenging, especially given the pressure to do it quickly. Indeed, it has been claimed that the need for speed in development and speed in going to market have a tremendous impact on the dynamics of technology transfer and is the most important driver of change, which means that a firm’s ability to develop and market products and technologies quickly is crucial (Amesse & Cohendet, 2001).

Introduction

This article examines some of the developments following the publication of my earlier article in this journal (Tanev, 2012), in which I summarized the characteristics of born-global firms in a context relevant to new technology startups. I defined a born-global firm as a new venture that acts to satisfy a global niche from day one by searching for and accessing resources that could help its global reach. The definition focuses on new ventures that are international or global by design and not by emergence.
