This research aims to provide an understanding of how absorptive capacity occurs in startups, which maintains interorganizational relationships with large companies. The research used a qualitative multiple case study design and the investigation of seven startups constituted the study corpus. The data were analyzed using statistical analysis, content analysis, and business process analysis. In the study, the software Iramuteq (Interface of R pour les Analyzes Multidimensionnelles de Textes et de Questionnaires) was used as a tool to aid the qualitative analysis of textual data. In a complementary way, the SPSS Statistics 17 software was used to treat the survey data.
