Technology Intelligence in Start-Up Ventures

Flexibility and speed of response are key advantages of start-up ventures based on their organizational knowledge base.

Because of the entrepreneurial dynamics and cultures within start-up ventures,  implementing a technology intelligence model from traditional firms and the search for “the” technology management approach seems not to be very promising. Therefore, technology intelligence has to be looked at in a more generic manner – e.g. by using the four behavioral modes of intelligence activities – in order to be managed in start-up ventures.
