Global Entrepreneurship: The Latest Research on Business Creation

The George Washington University School of Business recently hosted a two-day workshop and symposium on global entrepreneurship. Dr. Paul Reynolds, co-prinicpal for the Panel Study of Entrepreneurial Dynamics (PSED) I and II, led the Oct. 14-16 event, sponsored by the GW Center for Entrepreneurial Excellence and the International Council for Small Business. This event attracted researchers and scholars who analyze, design and implement longitudinal data sets on business creation. All in attendance benefited from the PSED analysis workshop, which is designed to enhance the scientific understanding of how people start businesses around the world.

PSED research is sponsored and supported by the Kauffman Foundation, the United States Small Business Administration, the University of Michigan, and the National Science Foundation, among others. Additional presentations from authors in 14 different countries included “A Novel Approach to the Study of the Temporal Sequence of Gestation Activity,” “Entrepreneurial Self-Efficacy, Start-Up Activities, and Team Composition,” and “The Contribution of Small Business Research to Economic Policy in the U.S.”
