Kwalifikacje właścicieli oraz sposób finansowania małych firm rodzinnych i nierodzinnych w Wielkopolsce. Podobieństwa i różnice

Hanna Mizgajska


The aim of the article is to answer the question whether qualifications and financing methods of owners of small family and non-family firms are similar or different. The owner's or manager's qualificarions are understood as the level of formal education, training and professional experience. Professional experience refers to a period prior to establishing one's own business, holding a managerial position, having a job in line with formal education as well as experience in running one's own firm. Financing methods refer to making use of bank credits and EU funds. The study used empirical material collected through questionnairies among twenty-six family and fifty-six non-family firms employing up to fifty people each in the Wielkopolska region. The study showed that small family firms differ substantially from non-family ones in respect to the level of formal education of the owners and how long the company has been on the market. Formal education of owners of small family firms is lower than those of non-family ones. Family-run businesses, however, are able to operate on the market longer than the non-family firms.
