Entrepreneurial Small Businesses

A Resource-based Perspective

Dean A. Shepherd and Johan Wiklund

The authors of this comprehensive study address why it is that some small firms perform well and others don’t, and whether high-performing firms share characteristics that distinguish them from low-performing firms. By exploring bundles of resources and their interaction with other factors, the authors explain important small business outcomes such as growth, performance, entrepreneurial activity, and the chance of receiving debt or equity capital.
