Startupy a nowe przedsięwzięcia: próba wyodrębnienia nowej kategorii badawczej
Agnieszka Skala , Sylwia Sysko-Romańczuk
AbstractThe growing need for a scienti c re ection on the phenomenon of startups, understood as the emanation of the digital revolution and the economy based on inno- vation, encounters serious barriers of conceptual and terminological nature. There is no clear de nition of a startup and clear criteria that distinguish startups from other forms of new ventures. Therefore, the results of research on startups are mostly incomparable, and in some cases may even be misleading. These problems could be reduced thanks to the good de nition and subsequent clari cation of the eld of research for a speci c type of projects. The accumulated literature and own results of many years of research allow us to pre- sent a research de nition of a startup and to propose a set of factors that distinguish two analysed categories of ventures: startups and new non-startup companies. The focus has been on the di erentiating factors that exist in the area of the methodology of managing two types of projects. The issues raised in the article are important for the development – on the one hand, new organisations (continuity of management processes), and on the other – stimulation (qualitative development) of already existing organisations.
