Considering the challenges facing organizations in today's turbulent markets, organizations need to look for more cost-effective and less risky strategies that increase the likelihood of success. Coopetition is the concept that address this need via cross-competitor collaborations instead of competing for limited resources as a solution that benefits both parties. This type of collaboration carries many risks, so it is needed to be explored in different dimensions. One of the main areas of research in coopetition is the question of what causes fierce competitors work together. The purpose of this research is identifying and conceptualizing the antecedents of coopetition for entering the ICT market of Iran, by analyzing data gathered from systematic literature review over the past 15 years and interviewing with 16 ICT experts of Iran through Multi Grounded Theory (MGT). Finally, a conceptual model is developed about the antecedents of coopetition for entering the Iranian ICT market, which composed of four groups: "Perceived benefits of coopetition", "macro environmental antecedents", "ICT industry characteristics" and "Organizational competencies".
