Strategic entrepreneurship and knowledge spillovers: spatial and aspatial perspectives

Tavassoli, Sam LU ; Bengtsson, Lars LU and Karlsson, Charlie (2016) In International Entrepreneurship and Management Journal
Abstract
The literature in the Strategic Entrepreneurship (SE) is increasingly embracing
the concept and implications of knowledge spillovers. In this paper, we add to the
theoretical repertoire on SE and knowledge spillovers by investigating the types of
knowledge spillovers and what they imply for various dimensions of SE. On the one hand,
we distinguish between spatial and aspatial knowledge spillovers. On the other hand, we
distinguish between three dimensions of SE, i.e. inputs, resource orchestration, and output.
Finally, we conceptually link the various types of knowledge spillovers and dimensions of
SE and discuss the implications. Doing so, we argue that spatial knowledge spillovers

(inter-firm) has received the major attention in previous research in increasing the amount
of ‘inputs’ dimension of SE, while the aspatial knowledge (either inter-regional or intrafirm)
has been relatively neglected not only for ‘inputs’, but also for ‘resource (Less)
