Founding and Genealogical Evolution

(p.114) 5 Founding and Genealogical Evolution
The Evolution of a New Industry
Stanford University Press

This chapter develops a conceptual framework to address the question that arises from the study: How and why are certain genealogies more potent than others? In doing so, it follows a theoretical framework, arguing that the historical sociopolitical and economic environments that shaped the initial conditions the parent firms met when they were founded, also affected the generational successions of their progenies. The chapter is organized as follows. It starts by providing a concise conceptual framework of genealogical dynamics and their major building blocks. The following sections discuss major findings, probing their critical constructs: imprinting of environmental conditions on founding parents; inheritance and transmission; evolutionary trajectory and potency; and, finally, convergence. The last section provides a summary and some implications for studying the emergence of a new industrial sector.
