Abstract [en]

This paper investigates factors that can explain sustainable growth in establishedsmall and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Deducted from previous research,tentative explanatory factors serve as a base for constructing a model for assessmentof an SME’s growth potential. Applying the assessment model on 154 companies didnot result in a clear pattern of factors that are most important for long-term profitablebusiness development and growth, but showed important overall differences betweenfinancially strong companies and weaker ones. These results can be a base for furtherrefinement of factors that should be taken into account for sustainable growth inSMEs.
