Purpose and goal
The entrepreneur and the business idea: This study investigates what happens to the entrepreneur and the innovation after a company has been liquidated. Sustainable growth models and their funding strategies: Growth is typically seen as the optimal success measure. This has been questioned lately where unprofitable growth may be directly harmful to the companies. We investigate links between different types of funding and long-term profitable growth. Loan based funding: funding. Over the years, a broad set of loan-based financing has emerged. Some of them are in focus in this study.
Expected results and effects
Increase our understanding about how early financing affect long-term sustainable growth.
Planned approach and implementation
Our approach is quantitative and utilize both primary data and secondary data in a unique way. In our former research project, running from 2012 to 2016, we built a unique database of Swedish startup firms and their funding. Within the frame for this study, we will continue to develop this database with new information from secondary sources, such as Bolagsverket and the so-called Serrano/Linda databases, and surveys to reach a population sample of 20.000 startup firms.
