This chapter examines the second phase of expanding a crime business. It first considers the entrepreneurial capability of decision-making under conditions of uncertainty before turning to specific business factors related to this entrepreneurial capability. It then presents case examples that illustrate the operation of such business factors within criminal markets and describes the use of the ‘fuzzy’ mapping analytical tool through ‘hypothetical’ case scenarios of crime groups at the expanding phase of a crime business. It also discusses four necessary business factors associated with entrepreneurial decision-making capability: business intelligence, violence, corruption, and counter-intelligence.

Keywords:   crime business, entrepreneurial capability, decision-making, business factors, criminal markets, fuzzy mapping, business intelligence, violence, corruption, counter-intelligence
