Exporters, Spin-outs and Firm Performance
() and Pardis Nabavi
Abstract: This paper analyzes the relationship between exporters,
spin-outs and firm performance. A large body of research has shown that
exporters perform better than non-exporters. But are also firms spawn out
from exporters better than other new firms in terms of survival,
productivity and growth? Using a panel of about 2,000 ex-employee starts
ups, their parent companies and 10 000 other new firms in Sweden observed
over a sequence of 5 years, we provide new evidence on spinouts as a
channel of transferring knowledge from exporting firms to new ventures.
