  • - Young Ho Nam (Kookmin University)
  • - Wan Min Kim (Pukyong National University)
[Abstract]
This research examines the characteristics of incubating organizations of hi-tech ventures in the information technology industry. In particular, it attempts to investigate incubating conditions under which entrepreneurs obtain their management abilities and market information, locate business partners and prepare the prototypes of their new products. For the empirical test, three incubator organizations, two universities(Seoul National University and Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology) and a government research institute(ETRI:Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute) are compared in terms of incubating conditions. It is found that two universities are not different in terms of lab members' demographic characteristics and their attitudes towards venture creation. However, the entrepreneurial environment of incubator organizations are different between the universities and ETRL. The universities have more favorable environments than ETRI in terms of providing management Know-how or capabilities, while ETRI has more favorable environments than the universities in terms a providing the information about markets, distribution channels or customers. The results of this study would provide many policy implementations to administrators of incubator organization as well as government policy-makers in making effective venture-creation policies.

  • - Seung Wha Chung (Yonsei University)
  • - Kong Myong Ha (한국 사이버 거래 (주))
[Abstract]
This study explores the logic and extent of outsourcing strategy among new venture firms in Korea. We extend and adapt the theoretical perspectives on outsourcing activities of existing firms to start-up firms, assuming start-ups have more incentive to focus on their key technology development and core competence. Variables such as production cost, financial slack, core competence, competition among suppliers, production capabilities, and risk reduction are examined simultaneously to understand what factors influence the degree of outsourcing for venture firms. We surveyed 139 new ventures that were less than 10 years old as registered in the Small and Medium Business Administration. The results show that cost reduction is specially powerful motivation for venture firms though risk reduction, financial slack, supplier competition, production capabilities, and focus on core competence also positively effect outsourcing activities. Also, industrial sectors and development stages of venture firms were significantly related to their outsourcing strategies.
