Evolution of technological capabalities: a case study on Indian product based telecom start-ups
MetadataShow full item record
New technology based start - ups play a very important role in developing the economy of a country. However, product based B2B start - ups in India are rare and existing ones have to undergo several challenges in commercializing. Present study explores the evolution of technological capabilities that enable commercialization among such early stage start - ups by adopting a multiple case based (four independent start - ups) inductive me thodology with Indian telecom start - ups as the context. We have identified architectural design, algorithmic implementation and product adaptation as components of technological capability of such start - ups. We explore the link between knowledge acquisitio n, telecom specific knowledge and capability evolution in present work in a regulated and knowledge intensive context. Finally, we put forth a three stage framework mapping the evolution of technological capab ilities among telecom start - ups, as well as ide ntify regulatory bodies, standard making bodies and social network as facilitators in the capability evolution process.
