Small Business Growth: A review and research proposal

This seminar will provide the findings of a comprehensive literature review covering the period 1994-2016 and discuss the theoretical and methodological advances we have made towards explaining small business growth. The seminar will further propose a configurational approach using longitudinal data from New Zealand to overcome some of the limitations associated with previous research.
