Abstract: Since most innovations occur at the boundaries of cultural systems, the transfer of knowledge across these boundaries is of paramount interest to knowledge management. We investigate how socio-cultural barriers to knowledge transfer emerge from the divergent life-worlds of new ventures and parent corporations and what enables interorganizational knowledge transfer across these barriers. The paper is anchored in the micro-interactionalist tradition in organizational learning and addresses the constructivist discourse in social studies of knowledge. The empirical part is based on an exploratory multi-case study on twelve corporate venture capital (CVC) dyads in two different industries in Germany. The results highlight the clash of cultures between parent corporations and new ventures and suggest drawing more attention to the integration of different modes of learning and types of knowledge by boundary-spanning across divergent life-worlds. The CVC units of parent cor-porations play a crucial role in interorganizational learning both as translator and as broker of knowledge.
