Configurations of business founder resources, strategy, and environment determining new venture performance

Abstract : We advance a configurational perspective that assumes a new venture’s performance, operationalized as profitability in this study, is determined by interdependencies among its founder(s)’s resources (i.e., human, social, and financial capital), its strategy, and environmental munificence. Using Rule Ensembles, a semiparametric set-theoretic method, we conduct an abductive investigation using a sample of 853 new ventures. The Rule Ensembles technique identifies five multivariate interdependencies (rules) that enhance new venture profitability and two that reduce it. Indicators of business founder resources are involved in all of the seven model rules. Four configurational rules, including a strategy and/or environmental component, equally emerge.
