In this paper the authors examine the views of Brazilian Managing Directors of prospective high-tech joint ventures with European or US firms. It provides insights on the importance of contributions from a typical local (Brazilian) partner firm, as well as from a typical foreign (European or US) partner firm. It also uses a panel of Specialists in order to classify independently two groups of firms: the most suitable and the least suitable to international joint ventures. Several differences concerning the perceived importance of prospective contributions were identified between the two groups of local firms.
