Mohr, V., & Garnsey, E.How do High-Growth Firms Grow? Evidence from Cambridge, UK. https://doi.org/10.17863/CAM.44132
This study quantifies the incidence and influence of rapid growth among firms in a high
technology milieu. We draw on evidence from a longitudinal database of technology firms in
Cambridge UK. Resource configurations and the entrepreneurial matching of resources to
opportunities are addressed, using Penrosian growth theory. We examine how certain
knowledge-resources of start-ups are related to firms’ subsequent growth. We examine various
firm growth modes to track how they are associated with firm and regional growth.
