Credit Access and Determinants of Entrepreneurial Success

This initiative is a joint effort between scholars in order to test the importance and factors of entrepreneurial success.

Main Researcher

William Fuchs

Professor William Fuchs (Finance) is working on a number of projects trying to understand the impact of access to credit on the formation of new business. Salem Center support will help the creation of randomized controlled trials to help : (1) evaluate the importance of complementarities between credit and business training and (2) provide a better understanding of the determinants of entrepreneurial success. The first wave of experiments is underway in Bolivia in partnership with the Banco para el Desarrollo Productivo (BDP).
