Introduction It is recognised that, relative to the population of small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), high-growth SMEs (HGSMEs) make a disproportionate contribution to economic growth. HGSMEs are frequently cited by policymakers and idealised by entrepreneurs with growth ambitions ( Volery et al., 2015 ). While extant research has identified factors that characterise HGSMEs, research has yet to provide a comprehensive explanation of the growth process. The objective of this paper is to extend this research by exploring triggers and transitions

In 1966, Laron et al. first described growth hormone insensitivity (GHI) in 3 children from a consanguineous Yemenite family who had extreme growth failure and a phenotype of hypopituitarism, but high concentrations of circulating GH [ 1 ]. This disorder, now known eponymously as Laron syndrome, was shown to be caused by a defect in the GH receptor (GHR) resulting in the inability of GH to bind to the GHR to produce insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-1 required for linear growth [ 2 ]. Therefore, IGF-1 deficiency associated with normal or increased GH levels are
