This study seeks to explore corporate entrepreneurship (CE) initiatives as purposeful rent-seeking activities. We address the nature of economic rent and how rent is created by the various forms of CE, both from a conceptual perspective and through a discussion of findings derived during a long-term study of the corporate venturing activities of 19 firms in Britain, Sweden, and the US. In addition, we provide specific examples of firms that have exploited the economic rent generating potential of the various forms of CE.
