The Impact of urban Localizations on the Growth Possibilities for Small Firms

Abstrakt

The purpose of this study was to identify the differences in the profiles of firms and their owners in urban and non-urban locations and also to asses the impact of those differences on the possibilities of growth for firms from both types of locations. Findings: urban entrepreneurs are better educated, more experienced and more positively motivated. Their firms are more innovative, with more qualified employeesadn better access to entrepreneurial infra-structure. However, they are not growing better than non -urban ones. This is a powerful suggestions, meaning that all possible benefits coming from the urban environment may be balanced out by the accompanying disadvantages. Research limitations/implications: The research sample was limited only to the Pomeranian Region. Some non-urban firms were located in small towns, which makes them somewhat similar to urban firms. The research should be continued using a more polarised sample, in which differences between urban and non-urban firms could be more significant. Originality/value: The research sheds some light on the influence of urban and non-urban location on growth possibilities for SMEs, which remains an underresearched topic, especially in Poland.
