Abstract [en]

While the importance of inter-organisational relationships in stimulating corporate entrepreneurship is well argued in the literature, little attention has been paid to how corporate capabilities for formation, development and integration of partnering relationships affect entrepreneurial activities in companies. From the analysis of a sample of 331 supplier companies providing products and services to the mining industry of Australia and Iran, we observe that partnering pro-activeness, relational governance and portfolio coordination positively impact corporate entrepreneurship. Moreover, the data indicate that absorptive capacity fully mediates the relationships between each of these dimensions and corporate entrepreneurship. Overall, these results contribute to a better understanding of organisational capabilities enabling companies to better utilise network ties in pursuit of corporate entrepreneurship.
