Functional knowledge is just a start: why strategic knowledge matters most for the long-term performance of startups

江鸿博士

Abstract: Using qualitative data from China, this study offers a typology and analysis of the phenomenon of incumbent-to-startup knowledge transfer, with particular emphasis on the distinctions between types of knowledge and their bearing on the short- versus long-term performance of startups. Drawing on six cases of private startups in the Chinese synthetic-dye industry, we identify eight types of knowledge that flow from incumbents to new firms during the foundation of startups, and we explore how and why variation in the knowledge obtained produces significant differences in the initial versus eventual success of startups. Abstracting the eight types of knowledge into two general categories of functional knowledge and strategic knowledge, we find that the reception of strategic (not functional) knowledge shapes the long-term competitiveness of surviving startups. We show that acquiring technical knowledge—which is one type of functional knowledge—during the founding period is necessary for short-term survival but insufficient for the long-term success of startups. Our findings show that the performance implications of initial knowledge acquired from incumbent firms hinge significantly on the precise type of knowledge, contributing to a more nuanced explanation of how incumbent-to-startup knowledge transfer affects entrepreneurial performance.
