More has been learned about the area of small business and entrepreneurship in the last five years than in the preceding twenty-five years combined. Yet much remains to be done. Research is needed to analyze and explain interfaces and causal relationships which can lead to convergent theories or a comprehensive theoretical development. If small business researchers are to respond to the challenge, consideration must be given to correcting existing deficiencies and incorporating research findings, constructs, and paradigms from other more mature functional areas to further the body of knowledge and to link the theoretical developments with practice.
