Formatted abstract
The objective of this research is to develop a more complete understanding of what causes new ventures and their founding entrepreneurs to be successful. After the entrepreneurial literature, data was gathered and analysed qualitative methods from a sample of fifteen owner/managers of small firms and one expert adviser. A listing was developed inductively of factors associated with successful new ventures: these were found to be market, an internal locus of control, experience in the same industry, certain personal values, effective organisational building and a successful competitive strategy. Causation of this phenomenon was found to be localised, complex and involving a process through time.
