This paper proposes a theoretical framework of the roles corporate context and individual knowledge play in influencing the nature of new business ideas generated by an organisation's members. In so doing, it puts forward the concept of new business idea sets: the complete stock of new business ideas a person is considering at any given time. By characterizing idea sets along a number of generic dimensions, new insights into, and a more comprehensive understanding of, corporate idea generation is enabled.
