This paper focuses on exploring linkages among Open Innovation practices and firm performance. While, in the last ten years, a certain amount of papers facing such an issue has been published, most of them treat inbound, outbound, and coupled innovation practice processes separately respect to different dimensions of innovation and financial performance. We argue that by investigating the concurrent influence of specific Open Innovation practices on both innovation and economic-financial firms’ performance has not been investigated so far into the literature and it is of primary managerial importance. We empirically test our framework on a sample of 105 companies listed on the NASDAQ.
