Building on an existing large-scale randomized controlled trial involving Ugandan SMEs, this project measures the spillover effects of several business expansion interventions on the business practices of firms that belong to the ‘treated’ firms’ social, business and market networks.

This project analyses management practices in Pakistan to explore whether weak management hinders productivity and innovation, and thus explain the differences in firm-level performance between and within developing and developed countries.

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.
