While start-up firms are usually born small, many of them have the potential to revitalize the whole economy, or parts of it, and change the way we think about business, innovation, and life in general. People tend to believe that successful start-up entrepreneurs are lonely champions and start-up firms are standalone stars, but even the biggest talents are lost without a supporting environment. Applying an ecosystems perspective to study the development of innovative small firms is hence becoming increasingly popular among entrepreneurship scholars. Still, we have limited knowledge of how the interactions between the context and the firm affect the development of both.
