Povzetek:

Hitro rastoča podjetja so se izkazala kot pomemben element za kreiranje delovnih mest, inovativnih idej, družbene blaginje in napredka. Široka spoznanja o pomenu hitro rastočih podjetij izvirajo iz zelo raznolikih raziskav omenjenega področja, ki so primarno usmerjene predvsem v pojasnjevanje pomena podjetništva, značilnosti podjetij (demografskih dejavnikov) in vpliva na kreiranje zaposlovanja ter ustvarjanja ekonomske rasti. V slednje bi lahko uvrstili tudi področje preučevanja finančne uspešnosti hitro rastočih podjetij, saj bo le v primeru, da bo hitro rastoče podjetje finančno uspešno, le-to lahko poslovalo (in zaposlovalo) na za podjetje pričakovani ravni. Kot predlaga teorija mreženja, bo organizacijska sposobnost mreženja predstavljala pomemben vidik oblikovanja finančne uspešnosti podjetja. Organizacijska sposobnost mreženja se je namreč izkazala kot pomemben dejavnik, ki lahko vpliva na finančno uspešnost, tako neposredno, kot tudi posredno preko vpliva na dostopnost do finančnih virov in informacij s katerimi podjetje razpolaga. V prispevku, na vzorcu n=125 hitro rastočih podjetij iz Republike Slovenije, analiziramo vpliv organizacijske zmožnosti mreženja na finančno uspešnost. Raziskava temelji na slučajnem vzorcu hitro rastočih podjetij, ki so bila vsaj enkrat med letoma 2011 in 2016 uvrščena na seznam hitro rastočih podjetij
po metodologiji Agencije republike Slovenije za javnopravne evidence in storitve. Rezultati potrjujejo spoznanja preteklih raziskav, čeprav smo z analizo ugotovili zgolj obstoj šibkih, statistično značilnih, pozitivnih vplivov. Rezultati tako nakazujejo na pomen organizacijske zmožnosti mreženja, katerega pomena v ekosistemu hitro rastočih podjetij, zagotovo ne gre zanemariti.

Ključne besede:

Hitro rastoče podjetje; organizacijska zmožnost mreženja, finančna uspešnost
