Financing, Organization, and Business Environment


Financing and organization are pillars of corporate strategy. The business environment or context is another important factor of the emergence and the development of the hidden champions. In view of their fast growth, the demands on financing capacity are always high. How do the hidden champions deal with this situation? Do they view their financial capacities as a strength or a weakness in competition? Does financing put constraints on their expansion or is there enough leeway for the realization of the ambitious growth and market leadership goals? How will the role of different financing forms shift in the future? What do they think about going public? We will investigate these questions in the chapter on hand.
