Empirical evidence about competence and the development of new firms

Abstract

After presenting theoretical concepts which depict the relationship between competence of the TMT and the development of NTBFs, this chapter serves to highlight empirical evidence concerning this relationship. Different researchers have conducted empirical research in order to identify factors which explain the development of young firms. In this chapter, central studies are presented that relate to the competencies of the executive level in young firms.333 The studies are grouped according to the competence dimensions which were presented earlier.334

    Roure, J.B. and Maidique, M.A., 1986 classify a founding very successful when it reaches a sales volume of more than 20 million dollar within five years, while Tyebjee, T.T. and Bruno, A.V., 1982 attribute success to ventures that surpass one million dollar without regarding the age of the new firm.

However, Schefczyk, M. and Gerpott, T.J., 2000 find the correlations between university degree and business success to be not significant. This could signal that very specific forms of higher education might not be beneficial for venture success as skills are formed that are not needed in the entrepreneurial field.Google Scholar
