This paper models competence acquisition in a sample of 842 small firms. The findings indicate how competence is acquired and determines firm performance. The modeling procedures reports better adequacy in sub-samples having high complexity and high uncertainty. A firm's competence base is a relevant predictor for how competence is acquired in all model tests. Implications for how small firms acquire competence are put forward.
