The study embrace the ecological level of analysis on the emergence, development and internationalisation of the cleantech sector in Finland. The new breed of cleantech firms, oftentimes small specializing start-ups operating in a narrow niche, seeks to outcompete traditional technology firms which are usually generalist multinationals with diversified markets and technologies at place. In this study, cleantech sector firms are considered to be a distinct population of organizations whereas the emergence, development and internationalization of this population is examined from the perspective of organizational ecology. By doing so our study seek to find and answer the most relevant questions related to ongoing and further developments within cleantech sector in general as well as for a particular country, in this case Finland.
