Abstract

We theorize that celebrity and status serve as both signals and interpretative frames, having differential effects on firms' access to resources. We find that status functions primarily as a signal, while celebrity functions primarily as an interpretive frame affecting how status and other signals are interpreted by potential alliance partners.
