The research contributes to the theories of enterprise modeling and venture management. The startup domain has been established as a field of study within enterprise modeling. Its business model is integrable with that of a mature enterprise. Startup processes can be characterized by a restricted set of operators. The business process patterns of (high-tech) startup enterprises in general, and the management layer in particular, have been characterized and found to be mostly generic. This enables portrayal of the progression of a venture from incubation to maturity through the evolution of its business functions. The models can serve as a blueprint for venture management, and as a basis for comparative research in different industrial sectors and different countries.
