Abstract

This paper aims to link together entry decision and post-entry performance. It relies on a database of 100 new Italian firms to link post-entry performance to the original factors that shaped the decision to start a new firm. The evidence suggests that those motivations underlying the decision to start a new firm do not have a neutral influence on post-entry performance. Rather, an innovative motivation and certain traditional economic factors tend to be related to a superior post-entry performance. The same seems also to be true for background push-factors such as the previous employment position. Copyright 1998 by Oxford University Press.
