Abstract

The aim of this research is to provide case study evidence on the innovation performance of high-growth SMEs in an uncompetitive regional economy. Drawing on four in-depth case studies and using a comprehensive list of innovation typology we measured the effectiveness of thirteen different innovation typologies introduced by the high-growth SMEs. Further, we assessed the level of importance of each innovation that the high-growth firms as it relates to the business growth and profitability providing invaluable insights on the factors that determine SME growth.
