Abstract

This paper contributes to the literature of innovation, network strategies and institutions in emerging China by identifying the bridging role of home-based networks between different indigenous institutions and innovation of Chinese firms. Focusing on the mediating function of home-based networks, we advance three arguments. First, the needs of consolidating and integrating knowledge on home-based networks significantly improve our understanding of innovative capabilities of contemporary Chinese firms. Second, the exploitative and explorative home-based networks are defined as the salient idiosyncrasies in China that help Chinese firms to gain their competitive advantages under the boundary of different institutions. Lastly, defining the specific normative and cognitive institutions in China fosters our understandings of the facilitating factors for the formation of home-based networks, which the extant literature has largely ignored.
