Hyun Sook Ahn, Dong Man Lee, Hyun Sun Park

Abstract

This study investigates how government support influences the performance of e-business companies. Drawing on previous studies, funding support for technology development and marketing support, currently accounting for the biggest part of the support provided by the Korean government to the e-business sector, were selected as independent variable. Meanwhile, performance indicators specific to e-business such as human resources development, competitiveness enhancement, profitability, and growth in technology assets were chosen as dependent variable. The data was collected through a survey of CEOs and executives of e-business companies that had received or were receiving government for technology development had a positive influence on competitiveness enhancement, profitability, and technology assets growth. Marketing support, while it had a significant influence on competitiveness enhancement and technology assets growth, proved to have no measurable effect on profitability.
