Scaling and Scale-up Strategies: Taking Stock and Promising Directions for the Future

Many viable ventures seek to ‘scale up’ their business to develop an international firm of competitive size. Similarly, many established firms seek to ‘scale up’ innovative offerings and novel business models quickly to capture value. In both instances, this ‘scaling’ often occurs across geographies in a global context. This panel will discuss the progress of research and theory on scaling and scale-up strategies and relate them to other important areas such as high-growth strategies, entrepreneurial venture development, business models and replication strategies. The panellists will also discuss some promising opportunities of future research on scaling and scale-up strategies as well as some of the important theoretical and empirical challenges faced by scholars interested in this area.
