ABSTRACT
Can small and medium-sized businesses invest in a specific manner in intrapreneurial initiatives that could help them avoid bureaucratic traps along their life cycle, if they grow? This paper proposes a theoretical framework under which this question should be answered. Highlighting and connecting elements from the Institutional Theory, the Agency Theory, and Corporate Entrepreneurship, the main idea is to understand the evolution of agency conflicts and institutionalized practices along the company's life cycle and to connect them to entrepreneurial/intrapreneurial practices.
