ABSTRACT
The lack of unequivocal theory of growth, provoked the Authors to propose an own model based on the owner-manager's intention to grow a firm. This intention can be characterized by the four sets of fingerprints listed in the paper. (owner characteristic, firm-based, managerial based, perceptional based). Some of those fingerprints were tested in the first phase of the research conducted in Pomerania Region in 2006. The further relationship between intention to growth declared in the first phase and the actual growth will be investigated during the second phase of research in 2008.
