Este estudio compara la estrategia de innovación abierta entre startups y empresas establecidas por un periodo de diez años (2004-2013). Usando una muestra española de startups y empresas establecidas, encontramos que difieren considerablemente, y ello tiene implicaciones para la dirección de empresas. Las empresas establecidas y las startups se diferencian en términos de su uso de las actividades de cooperación externas como fuente de innovación. La falta de recursos financieros y humanos de las startups les lleva a abrir sus fronteras más que las empresas establecidas, y las startups se benefician de ser flexibles porque no han implementado rutinas todavía. Esto impulsa el resultado de innovación de las startups.
