Entrepreneurship entry mode and survival


Entrepreneurship research has investigated and generally well-documented the determinants of outcomes of new firm formation (survival and growth). But so far, little distinction is made between different entry modes. An emerging line of thinking shows that starting a new firm from scratch and taking over an existing firm are two distinct entrepreneurship entry modes. The research group is a joint effort of Montpellier Business School (Frank Lasch, Frank Robert, Roy Thurik) and the University of Trier in Germany (Jörn Block, Guoqian Xi).

Current projects include:
- How do determinants of firm survival differ by entrepreneurship entry mode?
