Analysis of the resources of technology-based associations from the perspective of the Resource-Based View: the case of the Minas Gerais innovation ecosystem

Rafael Vítor Gonçalves de Aquino, Rodrigo Oliveira da Silva

Abstract


Objective: this study aimed to analyze the innovation ecosystem of Minas Gerais, limited to incubators and accelerators, from the perspective of the Resource Based View, in order to promote a better understanding of the resources offered by accelerators and incubators in Minas Gerais, and how these organizations distinguish and complement each other.

Methodology: the method of investigation in the research was the case study, in an exploratory-descriptive perspective, with a qualitative approach. The instruments of evidence collection were results from interviews with managers of the investigated organizations and analysis of documents.

Originality: for delving into a point little explored in the literature, which is to evaluate the resources offered by business incubators and accelerators, from the perspective of the resource-based view, the study approaches in an innovative way how these resources overlap or complement each other.

Results: the research found that both incubators and accelerators deliver valuable resources to assisted ventures, and these two actors in the innovation ecosystem complement each other positively in preparing new businesses for the market.

Theoretical contributions: this article adds positively to the strategy and innovation literature, due to the unique approach of evaluating valuable resources offered by organizations that propel nascent ventures to success in their respective markets.

Contributions to management: in possession of the results of this study, managers who make up innovation ecosystems, especially those of incubators and accelerators, can offer better resources directed to the profile of the assisted companies.
