This paper aims to contribute to knowledge about how and why management control system as a package is designed in growing start-ups.

The analysis examines the empirical material collected from the interviews conducted. Similarities and differences between companies are primarily discussed and categorized according to the model that forms the basis of the interview material. Clear differences and similarities were identified primarily in the use of corporate culture, planning, performance measures, reward systems and administrative controls. (Less)
