Abstrakt

It has become increasingly commonplace for firms to have foreign-born persons in their board of directors. This has been frequently linked to increasing firm-level innovativeness. Surprisingly, there is no empirical evidence to corroborate or contradict this assumption. The analyses conducted here confirm that there is a positive association between foreign board members (FBMs) and the innovativeness of the firm and that firms are more likely to have FBMs from more innovative than less innovative countries. However contrary to expectations, FBMs coming from less innovative countries than the countries of their host companies are actually more often associated with innovative firms abroad than in cases where FBMs are coming from more innovative countries.
