CMA Innovation Centre - Government Support of Business Emergence: Research, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship
May 06, 2015to May 06, 2015
Governments support businesses through tax relief, grants, loans, and business support services. In doing so, they can choose to support the preservation of existing assets, or the creation of new assets. New assets are created through the support of business emergence: research that yields new knowledge, innovation that results in new products and services, and entrepreneurship that produces new companies. Prior research shows that business support outcomes depend on company and entrepreneur characteristics; the nature, intensity, and duration of support; and the business environment. But where business support programs are small, timelines are short, or participating companies are pre-revenue or unique, commonly advocated experimental approaches to evaluation may be infeasible. I present an alternative approach and new data that benchmark the results of a diverse range of business support initiatives from Canada, the US, China, and Europe.
