There have been a number of interesting papers coming out recently trying to provide some frameworks for policy that supports high-growth businesses.
- Henrekson, Magnus and Johansson, Dan,Competencies and Institutions Fostering High-Growth Firms(July 4, 2008). IFN Working Paper No. 757. Available at SSRN: http://ssrn.com/abstract=1155480
The last one was released in mid-2008 but which I only became aware of in the last week comes from the Europe INNOVA project of the European Commission's Directorate General Enterprise and Industry. I wanted to point out with this particular study, that the report starts with a call for more research data sets on high-growth firms. The panel, like this author, believes that many of our policy limitations in this area are the direct result of lack of an adequate research data infrastructure.
