Research Grant Projects

This project aims to investigate the importance of financial constraints as a barrier to entry and as a barrier to growth.
This project considers financial constraints as barriers to entry and growth and examines whether easing these constraints can induce entry of more dynamic start-ups with greater long-run growth potential than by removing explicit entry barriers.
