The study embraces the population
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 hand. In this study, cleantech sector
firms are considered to be a distinct population of organizations whereas the
emergence, development and internationalization of this population are examined from the perspective of
organizational ecology. By doing so our study sought
to find an 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.
