New Publication JUNGE UNTERNEHMEN Replaces Former ZEW Start-up Report

Logo Junge Unternehmen

ZEW and Creditreform will regularly report on foundation dynamics in Germany in their joint German publication JUNGE UNTERNEHEMEN (Young Firms). This newly launched publication features recent studies and research results on firm foundations as well as reports on the development of young firms. Starting from the spring of 2014, the report will be published twice a year as a PDF file and will replace the ZEW Gründungsreport (ZEW Start-up Report). You can conveniently receive the JUNGE UNTERNEHMEN report by e-mail.

You can order the publication by filling in the order form (in German only).

Entrepreneurship Research at ZEW

"Firm foundations and firm dynamics" is one of the major research topics of the department "Industrial Economics and International Management" at ZEW. Within this field, analyses of the development of firm foundation activity in different markets and sectors, of the determinants on business formation, of the success of young firms and of the general conditions for firm foundations are in the research focus. The empirical basis for research is the Mannheim Enterprise Panel, which is maintained at ZEW in cooperation with Creditreform. On the basis of the MUP, MUP-Indicators (purchasable at ZEW) are prepared which contain aggregated numbers on development of firm formation activity in Germany at different regional and industry-levels. Current developments evaluated on the basis of the data are edited professionally and published every six months in the new publication JUNGE UNTERNEHMEN (formerly ZEW-Gründungreport). The empirical basis is expanded with the KfW/ZEW Start-up Panel easing longitudinal and panel analyses.

The scientific research works cover a broad spectrum of issues:

  • Financing of young firms (e.g. the role of venture capital and business angels),
  • Role of scientific institutes as incubators and triggers for start-ups with special focus on founders' attitude towards science,
  • Scale of public assistance programs for young firms and their effects on firm formation activity,
  • Performance of young High-Tech Firms,
  • Effects of structural changes like fluctuation in management or financing adjustments on young firms,
  • Role of founders' human capital for firm performance,
  • Effects of business failure on restart behaviour.
