Hunger for growth: Private equity -backed companies as agents for change (Etlatieto Oy) [Completed]

The project studies the roles of two parties – the members of the Finnish Venture Capital Association (FVCA) as well as Tekes, the Finnish Funding Agency for Innovation – in supporting companies’ growth ambitions and actual growth in Finland. In particular, the project considers how public innovation support and private equity investments are targeted (by company, in 2007-2015) and evaluates the economic impact of these investments.
