The Importance of High Growth Companies in Austria


  • Werner Hölzl



High growth enterprises are important carriers of economic dynamics. They contribute to job creation and to the diffusion of new technology. This paper is the first to show the importance of high growth firms for the Austrian economy, using a comprehensive database derived from social insurance accounts. While the definition of an enterprise limits any effort to compare large enterprises at an international level, the results for smaller enterprises should be comparable across countries.
