Call for papers: Growth

Call for papers: Growth

A special issue of International Journal of Opportunity, Growth and Value Creation

This special issue spotlights the growth of entrepreneurial enterprises. Growth is at the core of entrepreneurial activities and subsequent development, and is reflected by the exploitation of opportunities and subsequent organizational development. The issue will thus draw attention to shedding new light on the sources, processes, and outcomes associated with organisational growth, particularly in the context of entrepreneurial firms. As we acknowledge that growth is a multidimensional phenomenon, papers that address growth from multiple levels of analysis are very welcome.

Subject Coverage

Topics of interest to this issue include, but are not limited to:
  • Influence of founder/team characteristics on growth
  • Influence of strategy, particularly innovation and entrepreneurial, on growth
  • Influence of the task/external environment on growth
  • Management and control of fast/rapidly growing enterprises
  • Measuring entrepreneurial growth across various stages of development
  • The (temporal) relationship between growth and other performance indicators
  • Theory on growth: resources, capabilities, networks, and barriers
  • Role of institutions, such as government, incubators, and agencies, in firm growth
Important Date
Paper Submission Deadline: 15 August 2008
