Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The main objective of this study is to demonstrate that innovation promotes the likelihood that small firms form part of the supplier networks of large companies based in local industrial parks. In particular, it is demonstrated through the design of a logistic regression model that more types of innovations (product, process, management and marketing) increase the probability that any randomly chosen small firms to be supplier of multinational companies leading global value chains. Hypothesis tests are performed on the basis of a random sample of small metalmecanic and of information technologies firms from Sonora, given that (as is showed by previous research) these firms are better able to participate in networks mentioned.
