This paper argues that the poor conceptualization of the "firm" in economic geography detracts from the analytical strengths and policy relevance of the discipline. Identified as a phenotype, the firm remains ambiguous as an analytical category. This paper reviews nine overlapping conceptualizations of the firm in order to identify their relevance to the economic geography project. It discusses the broad strengths and weaknesses of these approaches and describes the unique perspective each provides on the nature and functioning of the firm.
