This research investigates the role of context for high-potential Entrepreneurship, defined as the creation of growth oriented firms. Our aim is to develop knowledge on what contextual factors promote the emergence of growth oriented entrepreneurial firms, and how such firms affect economic growth. We use longitudinal data on all new firms in Sweden in 1990-2008, as well as data from Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) 2000-2009 measuring high-potential Entrepreneurship across the world.
Keywords: Growth, Multi-level modeling, Meso- and Macro level outcomes of entrepreneurship
