Abstract

This dissertation uses data from the U.S. Panel Study of Entrepreneurial Dynamics to examine start-up assistance programs broadly defined as those programs offered by government agencies, educational institutions, business associations, non-profit organizations, for-profit firms and others. It is structured as three essays that investigate different facets of the interaction between nascent entrepreneurs and start-up assistance programs. The first essay focuses on why some entrepreneurs obtain assistance while others do not. The second essay investigates the effectiveness, value and efficiency of assistance programs in meeting entrepreneurial support needs. The third essay examines the impact of assistance programs on start-up outcomes.

Keywords: start-up, assistance, entrepreneur, programs, entrepreneurial
