Abstract

Small and medium enterprises create a significant contribution to the state's economy.
According to the Central Statistics Office, small and medium enterprises accounted for 99.8% of total number of enterprises in 2017 and generated 50.2% of total turnover in the business economy (CSO, 2017). They take an essential part in job creation — in 2017 small and medium enterprises accounted for 68.4% of total persons engaged, that is twice more than the impact from large enterprises (CSO, 2017).

Small companies represent the largest share of Ireland's business world. Their existence is an important part of the economy, that is why small and medium enterprises should be supported from the very beginning. However, the closer business to starting point, the more chances it has to declare a final enterprise death. Among the 15,080 enterprises created in 2012, only 66.2% lived long enough to meet the year 2017 (CSO, 2017). This work analyses the impact of entrepreneurial culture on business model on the case of Irish small enterprise.

The findings of this study might have a positive impact on business strategies for small companies by offering frameworks based on entrepreneurial traits that can help to get through the most challenging first five years. The importance of this work is proved by the great impact of small and medium enterprises on the economy and instability of their position. Effective frameworks built on understanding of imprinting theory and entrepreneurial culture, will benefit not only the owners of the small companies, but the society in general by creating more employment positions, services and goods for the community.
