After the collapse of communism in Central and Eastern Europe, former party members were particularly likely to start businesses and become entrepreneurs. What remains unclear, however, is whether this entrepreneurial activity was driven by the resources, information, and opportunities provided by former party membership or because individuals with specific individual attributes were more likely to become Communist cadres (self-selection). This study is the first to separate the causal effect of...

This study examines the effect of targeted easing (TE), an unconventional monetary policy designed to reduce reserve requirement ratios (RRR) of selected financial institutions, on reducing financing constraints of Chinese small businesses. Using a longitudinal sample of listed small businesses between 2003 and 2018, we find that the implementation of a TE policy significantly reduces financing constraints of small businesses as measured by the cash flow sensitivity. In addition, the policy effe...

This paper investigates the impact of economic integrations on entrepreneurial outcomes. The study bridges a gap between the literature on entrepreneurship and trade by exploring how international trade and global value chain (GVC) integration influence the share of start-ups and high-growth firms in manufacturing industries in eleven Central and Eastern European (CEE) member states of the European Union (EU) during the 2011–2016 period. Exports, imports, and forward GVC participation increase t...

We investigate how the emergence of fintech start-ups and their financing is shaped by regional knowledge creation and lack of trust in financial services incumbents across 21 OECD countries, 226 regions and over the 2007–2014 period. We find that knowledge generated in the IT sector is much more salient for fostering new fintech start-ups than knowledge generated in the financial services sector. Additionally, the importance of new knowledge created in the financial services sector (IT sector) ...

This study investigates small businesses’ financing decisions. Drawing upon asymmetric information theory, institutional theory and relevant literature on cognitive financial constraints, human capital and social capital, we propose a theoretical framework in which financing determinants come from three dimensions: entrepreneurs’ individual factors, organisational (firm-level) factors and contextual (institutional) factors. We employ this model to distinguish four types of firms: (1) firms that ...

An assessment of the economic impact that can be achieved through grants makes it possible to refine such policy instruments in order to make public funding more effective in relation to the objectives pursued. In this paper, we investigate the effects of a business development grant scheme. More specifically, we question whether firms’ performance measures increased after receiving such grants. Methodically, we match grant receiving firms with grant non-receivers and estimate the average treatm...
