3 October 2018 at 3.15 pm CEST: "The Growth of Small Businesses" with Professor Alex Coad

This webinar provides an overview of recent theories and evidence regarding the growth of small businesses. We begin with a look at the structure of industries, in terms of size, growth and age distributions, before looking at the mechanisms underlying these aggregate phenomena. A number of oft-mentioned determinants of firm growth are discussed: profits, innovation, lagged growth, and founder characteristics. We also investigate the phenomenon of high-growth firms – the small proportion of firms that make a disproportionately large economic contribution.
