Book Title:Mechanisms for Long-Term Innovation: Technology and Business Development of Reverse Osmosis MembranesAuthors:Masatoshi Fujiwara, Yaichi AoshimaPublished by Springer Nature Singapore in 2022, 372 pages, part of the book series: Advances in Japanese Business and Economics (AJBE, volume 31) this book:This book explores how a long-term innovation can take place based on historical analyses of the development of reverse osmosis (RO) membrane from the early 1950s to the mid-2010s. The RO membrane is a critical material for desalination that is a key to solve water shortages becoming serious in many places of the world.The authors conducted in-depth field studies as well as analyses of rich archival data to demonstrate how researchers, engineers, managers, entrepreneurs, and policymakers interacted each other for this material innovation to be realized. A series of historical analyses in this book uncovered that initial government supports, strategic niche markets, emergence of breakthrough technology, and company-specific rationales played significant roles for companies to overcome four types of uncertainty, technological,
Topic:“A Conservation of Resources Perspective on Analyzing Founders’ Emotional Support: Performance Implications for East Asian New Ventures”Speaker:Martin Hemmert(Professor, Korea University Business School)Date:December 14th (Wednesday) 2022from 17:00 to 18:30Venue:HYBRID: onsite & onlineIIR Laboratory 2 (Room#219) of the second floor of the IIR building (onsite) & Zoom meeting (online)Organizer:Yaichi AoshimaThis forum is jointly organized by AAOS (The Academic Association for Organizational Science).Abstract:Research on entrepreneurs’ emotional support by families and friends has mostly focused on personal-level outcomes, and the relevance of emotional support for new venture performance is not well understood. Building on the conservation of resources (COR) perspective, we conceptualize emotional support by families and friends as a key resource for entrepreneurs that enables them to enhance the performance of their new ventures. Furthermore, we theorize that entrepreneurs’ personal conditions and constructive resources, macro resources, and instrumental support resources influence the relevance of emotional support for new venture performance. Analyzing survey data from 2,776 new ventures in China, South Korea and Japan,
