Abstract
We build on the concept of ambiculturality to develop hypotheses describing why ambicultural firms both develop innovation capabilities and achieve financial performance. The results suggest that when firms are able to balance multiple cultural contrasts, they are able to capitalize on innovation opportunities, and improve firm performance.
