Webinar Entrepreneurship and Regional Growth in the Long Run Speakers

Entrepreneurship can promote economic performance in a variety of ways, short-term and in the longer run. A key finding of recent empirical studies is that high regional levels of entrepreneurship in terms of self-employment and new business formation tend to be rather persistent and can last for decades or even more than a century. A long tradition of regional entrepreneurship is often associated with certain mentalities and basic values of the population. Such a tradition or ‘culture’ of entrepreneurship can shape the ability of a regional economy to cope with external challenges such as national or global crises. I summarize research on long-term persistence and effects of entrepreneurship, discuss policy implications, and identify important avenues for further research.

Open to all and free to attend, this webinar series aims to bring experts in the field of regional studies, science and policy to you. The webinar can be watched live but will also available on demand. The webinars will run live once a month and feature researcher and policymaker experts. They include time for discussion, questions and comments.
