Contextualizing Scaling Practices

Researchers have recently started exploring how and why entrepreneurship practices differ across contexts. The underlying dimensions explaining key differences include those relating to place and space (business, social, spatial, and institutional) and time (temporality and history) and the project aim to uncover how and why scaling practices differ across contexts by conducting a qualitative, multiple-case study. The focus will be on three industries (software, hardware, and fashion design) in four countries including developed and developing countries (Japan, Sweden, Estonia, and Mongolia).
