Abstract: The aim of this paper is to examine whether firms that innovate, experience higher rates of growth than firms that do not. Our analysis is based on different models and econometric methodologies applied to several waves the Community Innovation Surveys (CIS) for French industry, during 1992–2004. Our main findings are that innovative firms grow more than non-innovative ones. The estimation techniques give results that are quite robust to the effects of different types of innovation on firm growth. In particular, the quantile regression results show that the coefficient of innovation is higher for firms with the highest growth rates, a result that is robust to different measures of the dependent variable.
