Q: Do I need to be a current Kauffman grantee in order to apply for use of the NETS database under the Kauffman Foundation's license?
A: No. While current and former grantees are obviously encouraged to apply, all applications will be based on their relevancy to questions of concern to the Foundation and its broad agenda to advance entrepreneurship and innovation research.
Q: Will I have access to the NETS micro data for linking purposes to other business-specific data?
A: Yes. A big advantage of NETS is the ability to match via DUNS number (common in many other sources) or business name and address.
Q: Will I be able to have access to the NETS data on my personal computer or a local workstation/server?
A: Yes. Approved researchers, accessing the NETS data via Kauffman's license with the BDRC, will work with BDRC staff to narrow as much as possible the portions of NETS which are applicable to your research and then help in delivering of the data. Approved scholars WILL NOT have license to redistribute the underlying NETS database to others. The data files are large, so if significant portions of the NETS file are agreed upon for transmission, the researchers might need to utilize a server-based storage solution.
The Kauffman Foundation’s license is currently closed. If you are interested in future related opportunities please contact E.J. Reedy, firstname.lastname@example.org.
