Abstract


Emerging countries have been focusing their development strategy on entrepreneurship along with innovation and technology diffusion. In the context of a traditional industry located in the South of Brazil, this study has analyzed the factors that led a company to invest in creating a corporate spin-off. An analysis framework was developed and turned out the following factor of analysis: (i) Characterization (parent company and spin-off); (ii) Relevant Factors of Spin-off Decision; and (iii) Process (external and internal environment). The framework was applied to a case study and the results show that spin-off creation is an alternative to explore stagnated resources in a parent company upon a market opportunity. Separating the spin-off and integrating it into an innovation environment is a strategy to mitigate the market barriers; while factors such as public policies have limited impact on decision-making, they affect the process of the spin-off creation. The study points out that the creation of a spin-off occurs in a context guided primarily by the opportunity, due to strategic orientation of the parent company.

Keywords: spin off, entrepreneurship, innovation, traditional economy, tech based.
