Aims and scope

Even though research into the relationship between marketing and entrepreneurship is still relatively young, the subject has thus far proved exciting and thought-provoking, and critical thinking has progressed rapidly.

Coverage may include, but is not limited to:

  • The size and structure of the entrepreneurial enterprise.
  • SMEs and micro businesses approach marketing
  • Intrapreneurship
  • The role of entrepreneurship in marketing
  • The role of marketing in entrepreneurship
  • How do successful entrepreneurs market their product and services?
  • Competencies necessary for the successful entrepreneur
  • The role of entrepreneurship (and, as appropriate, intrapreneurship) in the development of organizations
  • Life cycles of organizations: the stages in the growth of firms and the analysis of critical episodes
  • The influence of external help, support, and personal contact networks
  • Opportunity recognition
  • Relationships between SMEs and larger firms: how SMEs interact successfully with larger firms and how these larger firms in turn manage their relationships with SMEs
  • Strategic and management issues that pertain to marketing
  • Cultural and sociological perspectives of the entrepreneur
  • Cross-cultural studies and work on developing economies
  • Appropriate research methodologies.
