The title of the dissertation is: Entry to a New Technology-enabled Product Category: How New Market Uncertainty and Old Market Growth Influence Entry-timing Effects?
Timo Partanen, M.Sc. (Econ.), will defend the dissertation "Entry to a New Technology-enabled Product Category: How New Market Uncertainty and Old Market Growth Influence Entry-timing Effects?" on 17 November 2017 at 15 o'clock (3 pm) at the Aalto University School of Science, Maarintie 8, lecture hall TU2, Espoo. In the dissertation, it was investigated when a firm, that introduces a new product based on a new technology before its competitors, benefits from its early-mover position. It was found that the timing in relation to uncertainty of the new technology, and the timing in relation to growth in firm's existing markets, may be more important for the firm's performance than the timing in relation to competitors' product launches.
