Abstract [en]

This paper investigates factors that can explain sustainable growth in established

small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Deducted from previous research,

tentative explanatory factors serve as a base for constructing a model for assessment

of an SME’s growth potential. Applying the assessment model on 154 companies did

not result in a clear pattern of factors that are most important for long-term profitable

business development and growth, but showed important overall differences between

financially strong companies and weaker ones. These results can be a base for further

refinement of factors that should be taken into account for sustainable growth in

SMEs.
