Abstract

The paper explores and measures the contribution of innovator’s DNA model (Dyer et al., 2009) in sustaining and developing entrepreneurial teams’ strategic innovation learning within a leading business accelerator in London. Embedded and longitudinal in depth single case study approach: Innovation Warehouse (London, UK). The theoretical conceptual and empirical model highlights the cause to effect relations existing among the latent variables (questioning, associating, experimenting, observing, learning) of innovator’s DNA model and its outcomes (value proposition, business network, shared cognitive strategic scheme). The single case study approach and the restricted boarders of the business ecosystem analysed. The paper is a theoretical contribution on the effectiveness of innovator’s DNA model adoption in business acceleration contexts. Moreover, it gives a managerial contribution to improve acceleration mechanisms for strategic innovation of new entrepreneurial teams.
