An investigation of the performance of nascent manufacturing firms

Abstract

To understand the context for firms being created in the manufacturing space we explore the factors affecting performance by applying Gartners’ (2004) overarching theoretical framework. We investigate the phenomenon of nascent entrepreneurship from a multi-stage perspective answering calls to provide studies that are more explicit about the timing of the performance in particular contexts. Our research shows that a college degree is helpful in receiving funding, and start-up experience has a slightly negative impact on defining the market, which highlights the interactions between individuals and process and casts new insights into the context of nascent entrepreneurship in the manufacturing industry.
