Abstract This article aims to capture the relationship between perceived growth barriers and firm size. This aim is pursued by developing a novel data-driven identification strategy that assigns firm size groups based on their statistical relationships to perceived growth barriers. The analysis is undertaken using data for approximately 44,000 Swedish SMEs (0–249 employees) for 2011, 2014, and 2017. The results suggest that small firms typically face constraints on equity financing, whereas larg...

We examine the factors affecting the time to initial public offering (IPO), using a sample of more than 10,000 start-up firms in Japan. We provide evidence that start-up firms engaging in innovative and uncertain businesses are more likely to go public earlier than other firms. The results also reveal that start-up firms that rely on equity financing at founding are more likely to go public earlier than others. Moreover, we find that start-up firms in highly valued industries are more likely to ...

In this article, we focus on how social workers use their agency when implementing top-down policy measures as street-level bureaucrats. We report on findings of a case study that was conducted in Flanders, the Dutch-speaking region of Belgium, about the top-down introduction of an electronic information system (IS) in the field of Child Welfare and Protection (CWP). Starting from insights derived from neoinstitutional theory, we explore how social workers perform a role as so-called 'institutio...

The main purpose of this study is to introduce three new indexes. In order to investigate the attitude and the capacity of communities, the entrepreneurial attitude index and the entrepreneurship capacity index were theoretically generated. This study proposed a non-linear regression approach to discussing the relationship between these indexes. The allometric relationship, as the nonlinear and well-fitted model, demonstrated that the variations of the entrepreneurship capacity index are entrepr...
