LIVE CHAT: The Future of Entrepreneurship and High Growth Firms

November 8, 2018 | 09:00am

Creating more and better quality jobs is a challenge common to policymakers around the world.  High-growth firms account for at most one-fifth of firms in manufacturing and services industries in emerging markets but create more than half of new jobs and sales in these sectors.

What are high-growth firms? Which types of firms are likely to become gazelles?

Are such firms the new face of entrepreneurship or “one-hit wonders”?

Are there robust criteria for identifying high-potential firms?

What should be policymakers’ priorities to accelerate firm growth?

Join our experts in a live chat on November 8 in a conversation on entrepreneurship based on the findings of a new World Bank report on ABCs of growth entrepreneurship: improving Allocative efficiency, encouraging Business-to-business spillovers, and strengthening firm Capabilities.

Ask your questions in advance and join the live chat to engage with our experts.
