This paper investigates the determinants of the ambition to grow among Dutch early-stage entrepreneurs (nascents and young business owners). The authors use Adult Population Survey data of the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) for the Netherlands. Merging cross-sectional data of the years 2002 to 2007, they arrive at a sample of 409 nascents and 336 young business owners. Growth ambition is measured by asking the respondent which statement fits him or her best: I want my company to be as large as possible, or I want a size I can manage myself or with a few key employees.
