Entrepreneurial Firms: Coast On or Cash Out?

Environment impacts performance capabilities of entrepreneurial firms. BASED ON THE RESEARCH OF ANAND NANDKUMAR (ISB) AND ASHISH ARORA (DUKE UNIVERSITY) The typical entrepreneur dreams of creating a business that creates wealth; however, he can only do so if he survives to see his idea blossom. Further, the more accomplished he is, the more likely he would like his idea to blossom fast, even if it means risking failure by trying to get too big too soon.
