Corporations, Entrepreneurs And Urban Development
AbstractThe state, local administration, corporations (private/ joint ventures/ multinational corporations), banks and syndicates represent the most important actors in urban management. Following the financial crisis, governments seek to attract and maintain high-growth firms that will fuel job growth after the recession. Still a lot of governments have failed in their roles to assure a sustainable level of foreign direct investments, to boost venture capital and entrepreneurship. The main reasons for this failure are the poor expertise and lack of understanding for the financing process, the incapacity or unwillingness to assure a competitive economic environment for entrepreneurs and the lack of interest to create attractive conditions for foreign investors. An important key to success is also the legal framework and the institutional process, which creates the reputation of a market in terms of transparency of information and flexibility for business development. In this paper I investigated the importance of corporations, entrepreneurs and legal framework in order to create urban growth. I also analyzed the case of Dacia Pitesti plant and the positive effects that the automotive activity has for the Romanian economy, local employment, staff skills and technical competences development, local suppliers and entrepreneur’s growth.
