The business start-up literature tends to estimate the determinants of start-up using a “one size fits all” single equation. By implication, this approach assumes that the sign, significance and magnitude of the impact of factors affecting new business start up are the same across different firm size categories. This paper outlines why the determinants of job creation by new business start-ups are likely to vary by firm size.
