In this talk, Niron Hashai, visiting Professor of International Business at Alliance MBS, goes over 20 years of his own work on the topic and addresses the question of how knowledge-intensive start-ups can successfully grow to become industry leaders. 

He will explore the challenges knowledge-intensive firms face in terms of international expansion, new product introduction, and alliance formation at the wake of fierce competition from large foreign multinationals.

The webinar will be facilitated by Mario Kafouros, Professor of International Business and Innovation and Head of the CIB group at Alliance MBS.
