Whilst fast-growth entrepreneurship has attracted increasing attention and debate amongst academics and policymakers, there have been few studies that have examined the impact of these firms within less competitive regions (Mason et al., 2015). This is despite evidence that entrepreneurship is a localized phenomenon as well as a spatially uneven process that tends to persists over time (Stam, 2010).
