New Venture Creation: From Gartner to the Present

Abstract

Gartner’s paper published in 1985 provided a robust framework for research into the various dimensions of new venture creation. It focused the discussion on differences among entrepreneurs and among their ventures, rather than on the differences between entrepreneurs and non-entrepreneurs. The framework was meant to provide a robust format for analysis and understanding of the variables of venture creation and their inter-relationships. Researchers have since applied the framework to explore several contemporary research themes like corporate, social, academic and international entrepreneurship. In the process, they have added new sub-dimensions to the framework and added depth to existing ones. This chapter discusses the ways in which researchers post-Gartner have used the framework and added value to it.
