Financing Technology Entrepreneurship The survival rate of technology-intensive start-ups is the lowest among new ventures in general. One key aspect in sustaining high-tech start-ups is the access to sufficient and appropriate financial resources. This research project sheds more light on the attecedents of financing decisions in technology start-ups and the implications for firm performance and survival. Differences between high- and low-tech entrepreneurs are analyzed. To achieve these research objectives, a comprehensive meta-analysis and analyses of German panel data will be conducted. Swiss Start-up Monitor The Swiss Start-up Monitor is a non-profit scientifically based initiative and has the main goal to quantify the Swiss start-up scene in order to concretely understand how young entrepreneur’s activities influence the Swiss economy. This target will be reached by offering founders a platform in which basic data about their start-ups can be entered and shared for instance with investors. The general public and the research community will be provided with facts about the impact of young entrepreneur’s activities on Swiss economy. The Swiss Start-up Monitor is a joined initiative of ETH Zurich, University of St. Gallen and University of Basel supported by CTI, AVINA, and Gebert Rüf foundation.
