Diaspora Ownership and Technological Licensing by Emerging Market

Publikation: KonferencebidragPaperForskningpeer review

Abstrakt

The liability of origin makes participation in international technology licensing challenging for emerging market firms. We draw on signaling theory and argue that diaspora ownership—diasporan equity investment—constitutes a reliable signal of firm quality and trustworthiness which facilitates emerging market firms’ access to international technology licensing. We theorize further about how the efficacy of diaspora ownership as a credibility-enhancing mechanism varies with the firm’s subnational context characteristics. We test our argument on a matched sample of 588 Indian manufacturing firms operating between 2006 and 2015 and find general support for the predicted relationships.
