Abstract:The current paper explores the extent of international learning among university spin-off firms and enhancing factors of this learning. Drawing on survey data of 100 university spin-off firms, the relationship is explored between absorptive capacity and international learning, alongside other factors. A small majority of spin-off firms is engaged in international learning and the most powerful influences tend to be R&D expenditure and international market orientation. The implications of the results and future research steps are discussed.
