From Start-up to Scale-up: Examining Public Policies for the Financing of High-Growth Ventures

Gilles Durufle, Thomas Hellmann () and Karen Wilson

No 12004, CEPR Discussion Papers from C.E.P.R. Discussion Papers

Abstract: This paper examines the challenge of entrepreneurial companies to go beyond the start-up phase and grow into large successful companies. We examine the long-term financing of these so-called scale-up companies, focusing on the US, Europe and Canada. The paper first provides a conceptual framework for understanding the challenges of financing scale-ups. It then shows some data about the various aspects of financing scale-ups in the US, Europe and Canada. Finally the paper raises the question of long-term public policies for supporting the creation of a better scale-up environment.
