Abstract

Intellectual capital (IC) and sustainable startup performance (SP) are the two pillars required for the survival of ventures. Besides, the competitiveness of new ventures is ensured by the importance of intangible assets within the firm as well as strategies implemented by the startup founders. This study aims to map the conceptual structure of research on intellectual capital and sustainable startup performance conducted between 2002 and 2021 using bibliometric citation analysis. For that purpose, 292 papers from the Scopus database are scrutinized further to determine the publication activities of the concerned area. Vosviewer and Excel software were used to analyze the data. It is found that the publication activities of IC and SP are a relatively new concept that emerged in 2002 and is showing a favorable trend. The study discovered that most intellectual capital studies focus on sustainable startup performance, innovative capabilities, and knowledge management practices.
