Making the case for high growth enterprises

It notes the importance of enterprise births and deaths for job creation, loss and overall economic dynamism. The chapter includes analysis of the increasing importance of innovation from new and small firms. It further provides a characterisation of low growth and necessity-driven firms as well as high growth, innovative and opportunity-driven enterprises.
