Autio E, Thomas LDW, 2018, Tilting the playing field: Towards an endogenous strategic action theory of ecosystem creation, World Scientific Reference On Innovation, Pages: 111-140, ISBN: 9789813147027
© 2018 by World Scientific Publishing Co. Pte. Ltd. Ecosystem creation is a form of endogenous strategic action: It creates and shapes new activity systems that exploit new ways of creating value. To be successful, this action requires that future ecosystem stakeholders agree to a shared vision of the ecosystem value proposition. In this chapter, we develop an institution al approach to understanding how firms can facilitate ecosystem creation by manipulating perceptions of value concerning the shared technology platform around which the ecosystem is organized. We discuss four arenas of endogenous strategic action: Manipulating cognitive legitimacy, manipulating perceptions of technological instrumentality, manipulating perceptions of economic instrumen tality, and manipulating normative legitimacy. We conclude with a discussion of the implications of our model for theory and practice.

Autio E, Levie J, 2017, Management of entrepreneurial ecosystems, The Wiley Handbook of Entrepreneurship, Pages: 423-449, ISBN: 9781118970836
© 2017 John Wiley & Sons Ltd. All rights reserved. There is an increasing policy interest toward entrepreneurial ecosystems. Yet, little is actually known about how an entrepreneurial ecosystem works and what the related policy challenges are. Drawing on research on ecological economics and community governance, this chapter develops a theoretical framework for entrepreneurial ecosystem management. Using a Scottish entrepreneurial ecosystem initiative as an example, the authors conclude that policy approaches that emphasize deep stakeholder engagement are likely to give rise to better informed, targeted, and more effectively implemented policy initiatives in entrepreneurial ecosystems than will market failure and structural failure approaches.

Autio E, Zander I, 2016, Lean internationalization, Pages: 1754-1758
We use transaction cost theory and foreign entry mode literature to explore the effect of digitalization on new venture internationalization. We argue that digitalization attenuates location specificity, vertical and horizontal asset specificity, and cross-border information asymmetries, giving rise to a resource-lean, proactive, and iterative form of 'lean internationalization'.

Autio E, Kenney M, Mustar P, et al., 2014, Entrepreneurial innovation: The importance of context, Research Policy, Vol: 43, Pages: 1097-1108, ISSN: 0048-7333
The purpose of this article and the special issue is to improve our understanding of the theoretical, managerial, and policy implications of entrepreneurial innovation. We accomplish this objective by examining the role of context in stimulating such activity, as well as its impact on the outcomes of entrepreneurial innovation. Our analysis begins by outlining an overarching framework for entrepreneurial innovation and context. With reference to this framework we then compare the attributes of national innovation systems, entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial innovation, and categorize contextual influences on entrepreneurial innovation. We then situate the papers presented in this special issue within this framework. We conclude by outlining an agenda for additional research on this topic, focusing on the relationships between contexts and entrepreneurial innovation and then discuss policy implications, focusing on how public and private actors can meet these challenges.

Entrepreneurship research is progressing towards the construction of indexes that integrate the information of the three predominant approaches: the entrepreneurial activity output; the population's entrepreneurial behavior, values and aspirations; and the context in which entrepreneurship takes place. In this study we compare the Global Competitiveness Index data, one of the objective sources of information selected among those recognized as descriptors of national contexts, with the national entrepreneurial context qualitative information provided by the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor. The main purpose of this research is to contribute to the knowledge of entrepreneurial context sources of information by opening a discussion around the usefulness and contribution that could make the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor source in this field, and to determine if it is recommendable to proceed to its formal validation in the short time. The obtained results evidence that the two sources do not overlap to the degree of substituting one by the other and that the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor provides relevant qualitative details about the state of entrepreneurial context that are interesting to complement the Global Competitiveness Index information. The conclusion is to recommend the formal validation of this source, being also necessary to make comparisons with other relevant sources and to clear up its role in the progress of the integrated indexes construction. © Investigaciones Regionales.

© Zoltán J. ács, László Szerb and Erkko Autio 2013. All rights reserved. The Global Entrepreneurship and Development Index both captures the context features of entrepreneurship and fills a gap in the measurement of development. Building on recent advances in entrepreneurship and economic development, the authors have created an index that offers a measure of the quality of the business formation process in 118 of the most important countries in the world.

Autio E, Rannikko H, Kiuru P, et al., 2013, The Vigo Finnish Accelerator Programme: Mid-Term Evaluation, Helsinki, Publisher: MEE Enterprise and Innovation Department, MEE 4/2013
The Vigo Accelerator Programme was launched in 2009 to address perceived gaps in the Finnish National System of Entrepreneurship – notably, those existing in the high-growth venturing ecosystem: (1) insufficient number of new ventures with potential for high growth; (2) equity funding gap in the region from approximately 20k€ to 200k€; and (3) insufficient experience and competence base in high-growth venturing. This mid-term evaluation addressed four questions: (1) whether the Vigo Programme had achieved its early-stage goals; (2) whether the Vigo concept addresses a real gap in the Finnish high-growth venturing ecosystem; (3) whether the Vigo Programme is likely to lead to the creation of a self-sustaining field of new venture accelerators in Finland; (4) what role the Vigo Programme might play in the Finnish high-growth venturing ecosystem in the medium to long term.

Smith C, Autio E, 2011, Entrepreneurial tie-order strategies and the creation of network advantage, Academy of Management 2011 Annual Meeting - West Meets East: Enlightening. Balancing. Transcending, AOM 2011
We develop a process theory of network emergence focusing specifically on the effects of building key external ties in sequence and their influence on network outcomes. Central to this theory is the notion that the emergence of new firmsï¿1/2 network structure is not only influenced by past histories of focal agents but also by complex, semi-reversible interactions be-tween ties. Using an inductive qualitative approach we induce a tie-order theory drawing on interviews with six new companies in the UKï¿1/2s independent television production sector over three years. We find that establishing key ties in sequence enhances resource collation, and amplifies perceptions of influence, impacting in turn on network outcomes.
Autio E, 2011, High-Aspiration Entrepreneurship, The Dynamics of Entrepreneurship: Evidence from Global Entrepreneurship Monitor Data, ISBN: 9780199580866
© Oxford University Press, 2013. This chapter analyzes the prevalence of high-aspiration entrepreneurs at both the country and individual level. The descriptive analysis reveals significant variation in high-aspiration entrepreneurship across countries as well as between high and low-income economies. At the country level, the analysis of institutional influences shows the difficulty of firing to be negatively and significantly associated to the prevalence of early-stage highaspiration entrepreneurs. The individual-level analysis confirms this effect. Thus, overall, the findings suggest that country-level factors exercise an important influence on individual-level entrepreneurial growth aspirations. The analysis also demonstrates the unique value of GEM data for the development of more robust and generalizable models of entrepreneurial growth aspirations.
