With the rapid development of Internet technology, Internet companies increase rapidly in all areas of the society, and have become a major economic way and also a new economic growth point in the modern era. This heralds the coming of network economy era. It is essential for both managers and investors to evaluate the growth of a listed company. Therefore, academics in China have been giving a lot of attentionon to the study about the growth of those Internet enterprises. First, on the basis of enterprise growth theory and entropy theory, this paper aims to recognize the factors which influence the development of small and medium-sized Internet enterprises by analyzing questionnaires. Then, the concept of entropy is proposed based on the entropy theory. Moreover, this paper determines the index weight of the growth entropy system and models the growth entropy model for the Internet SME (small medium enterprise) mathematically. This research provides a new method for growth analysis and also has a far-reaching significance for the development of the Internet SME.
