    內容簡介:

    Studies in strategy and entrepreneurship have examined how entrepreneurial firms build their resources to obtain competitive advantage. However, few have investigated the situation where their resources are at risk; one of such situations is patent litigations. Recent years have witnessed a surge of patent litigations that often involve entrepreneurial firms. While extant research primarily examines how patent litigations affect startups’ development of technological capabilities, much neglected is how litigations may affect their external financing, one of the most crucial issues for startups. This paper fills in the gap in the literature by studying how being sued for patent infringement affects startups’ venture capital (VC) financing. Using a carefully constructed matched sample linking patent litigations to VC-backed firms and exploiting variations in practices among district courts, we find that litigations reduce an entrepreneurial firm’s probability of receiving VC investment as well as the amount of investment received. Besides, we find that the negative impacts are less prominent when the startup has more quality signals, and when the cost of litigations is less uncertain.
