Do Technological Capabilities foster small young firm growth? The Brazilian Case

Author(s): Maria Molina-Domene & Franco Malerba
Working Paper No.: 2018-03
Keywords: Small young firms, technological capabilities, firm, Brazil

Project design capabilities are a major factor in the growth for small young Brazilian firms if combined with an appropriate level of external learning. Studying the role of technological capabilities on small young firm growth, the authors distinguish between three types of technological capabilities, projects, execution and external learning, and look at the complementarities among them. The econometric analysis on the empirical evidence on Brazilian small young firms employs three waves of Pintec surveys.
