fulltext etc. no fulltext attached
abstract The impact of family ownership and family expectations on corporate entrepreneurship and family firm image has been underresearched. Drawing on corporate entrepreneurship and organizational identity theories, we develop a model linking family ownership and expectations, corporate entrepreneurship, and image in family firms. We also suggest that corporate entrepreneurship and image can lead to growth in family firms. We test the model on a sample of 163 Swiss family firms. Our most important findings are that family expectations have direct influence on both corporate entrepreneurship and image and that both corporate entrepreneurship and image are associated with growth in family firms.
