The Role of Technology Resources and Internationalization in SME


For full text, please contact the Babson Faculty Research Fund.


This research looks at SME survival as a function of both resource ownership and leverage, focusing more specifically on technology resources. We take an international perspective in examining the pool of technology resources, both within and outside the firm, that serve as an input to a firm's activities, and the market that values and purchases the output of these activities. Our survey examination of 1,612 Korean SMEs suggests that technology resources themselves do not provide superior prospects, but internationalization on both the input and output side can explain survival, as well as modify the relationship between technology and survival.
