Liu, X., Wright, M. and Filatotchev, I. (2015). Learning, firm age and performance: An investigation of returnee entrepreneurs in Chinese high-tech industries. International Small Business Journal, 33(5), pp. 467-487. doi: 10.1177/0266242613508147

Abstract

Using unique survey data, this study investigates the impact of the learning of returnee entrepreneurs on firm performance. The findings indicate that returnee entrepreneur experiential and vicarious learning boosts firm performance. However, firm age significantly weakens the impact of learning on firm performance. The results extend the existing literature by explicitly examining the impact of the interrelationship between two forms of learning and firm age.
