Absorptive capacity is a multi-disciplinary construct that has been used by economists, sociologists and management researchers to measure a host of outcomes on multiple levels, but there is still a lack of studies examining the impact of absorptive capacity on new firm survival and performance. This paper argues for a deconstruction of absorptive capacity into an (a) individual knowledge component and an (b) organizational tenure/process component.
