Strategy as an aligning nexus between Innovation and Entrepreneurship Biotech Industry at Massschusetts
Aim The aim of this research is to elucidate an understanding of the relationship between firm performance and strategy, innovation and entrepreneurship among high- technology Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in the biotechnology industry at Massachusetts
Basic Premise There is a nexus between strategy, innovation and entrepreneurship and firm performance of SMEs in the biotechnology industry There are overlaps in current literature on Innovation and Entrepreneurship The aligning nexus is Strategy
Research Questions What are the dimensions of Strategy, entrepreneurship and innovation and to what extent do they contribute to the high-tech biotechnology firm performance? What evidence is there of a nexus between the entrepreneurial orientation and innovation? What evidence is there that the nexus is aligned by Strategy and brings about superior firm performance?
Focus Firm level Biotech SMEs Innovation - Porters study on innovative capacities, Clayton Christensens disruptive innovation, EU Community Innovation Survey as well as several resource-based and new product development approaches Entrepreneurial orientation Lumpkin (1998) that identified a set of five distinct dimensions: –product/service innovativeness, a tendency to support creativity and experimentation in introducing new products/services; –process innovativeness, a willingness to support novelty and technological research in developing new processes; –risk taking, a willingness to take bold actions with uncertain outcomes; –proactiveness, a forward-looking perspective involving acting in anticipation of future demand or change; –competitive aggressiveness, a tendency to be forceful and combative in efforts to outperform industry rivals. Strategy
Relevance of Research Countries have limited resources and therefore need to maximize the returns on every dollar spent How can countries determine an appropriate mix of strategies, innovation factors and capabilities and entrepreneurial knowhow to support the growth of firms in such industries?
Definitional Challenges Innovation is A process through which economic or social value is extracted from knowledge through the generation, development, and implementation of ideas to produce new or improved products, processes and services (Conference Board of Canada) Entrepreneurship, in its narrowest sense, involves capturing ideas, converting them into products and, or services and then building a venture to take the product to market (Johnson, 2001 ) The key elements of entrepreneurship include risk taking, proactivity and innovation (Miller, 1983) Innovation is the specific tool of entrepreneurship by which entrepreneurs exploit change as an opportunity for a different business or service (Schumpeter, 1934)
The EU Green Paper defines innovation as the renewal and enlargement of the range of product and services and associated markets, the establishment of new methods of production, supply and distribution and the introduction of changes in management, work organization, and working conditions and skills of the work force (EC 1995)
Massachusetts Biotechnology Industry 400 biotechnology companies Of which 235 are developing therapeutic drugs $5 billion of in-state payroll 50 large molecule drugs covering a range of illnesses Nearly 1,769 drugs being developed in Massachusetts, representing over 7 percent of the global drug pipeline
Methodology Face-to-face questionnaire survey Case Studies to triangulated Questionnaire is adapted from entrepreneurial orientation, Community of Innovation Survey (CIS-III) and relevant constructs from the new product development studies

EO Hypotheses Hypothesis 1: The greater the proportion of a firms autonomy, the greater that firms potential for success. Hypothesis 2: The greater the degree of proactiveness of a firm, the greater the firms potential for success. Hypothesis 3: The greater the degree of risk taking by the firm, the greater its potential for success. Hypothesis 4: The greater the degree of competitive aggressiveness of a firm, the greater that firms potential for success. Hypothesis 5: The greater innovativeness of the firm, the greater the firms potential for success.
Innovation Hypotheses Hypothesis 6: The greater the proportion of a firms total expenditure on R&D, the greater that firms performance. Hypothesis 7: The greater the proportion of Science and Engineering personnel employed by a firm, the greater that firms performance. Hypothesis 8: The greater the degree of collaborative intensity between firms, the greater the performance of those collaborating firms. Hypothesis 9: The greater the degree of collaborative intensity with universities/research institutions by a firm, the greater that firms performance. Hypothesis 10: The greater a firms customer orientation, the greater its performance. Hypothesis 11 The better the firms NPD process( initiation and implementation), the greater its performance

Data Analysis Structural equation modeling (SEM) is the primary method used to estimate the significance and strength of the relationships between the different elements in the model Case studies is in line with the pattern matching method suggested by (Campbell 1975) and (Yin 1994)
