Journal of Business Venturing (JBV) is seeking submissions for a Special Issue on

Scale-ups, Scaling, and Scalability: Entrepreneurial Scaling in the Digital Age

Submission Deadline: February 1, 2022

Edited by Drs. Erkko Autio, Satish Nambisan, Holger Patzelt, Llewellyn Thomas, and IE Ambassador for Canada, Nicole Coviello, the Special Issue aims to explore how certain firms, behaviors, and capabilities exemplify entrepreneurship: scale-ups, scaling, and scalability. This focus reflects the limited knowledge of the role and nature of scaling, particularly in a contemporary digital context. And, with the tendency to refer to all high-growth firms as scale-ups, what it means to scale has become unclear. Although being ‘scalable’ or having ‘scalability’ are now commonly used terms, these constructs remain poorly defined and, to date, they have not been operationalized nor measured in any meaningful way. IE-related papers are welcome.
