How Local Institutions Impact Firms in Transitional Countries

The Telfer School of Management is pleased to invite you for a New Faculty Seminar presented by Associate Professor Hien Tran on Friday, February 22, 2019, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.

In countries in transition to an open-market economy, young firms that are dynamic, innovative and productive tend to perform better than companies that have been in the market for a while. However, these young firms are often not successful.

Moreover, when comparing young firms’ ability to survive and grow with the situation of similar firms in open-market economies, young firms are surprisingly more likely to fail in transitional economies.Hien Tran

In this presentation, Associate Professor Tran will address the main reasons why this happens. Understanding that local institutions can be critical for the survival of new ventures, she will:

  • compare the differences in how local institutions in open market and transitional countries can impact new firms’ ability to prosper;
  • identify the institutional factors that improve or decrease the chances for new firms to succeed in transitional countries; and
  • explain how policy-makers can improve the quality of institutions and hence facilitate the survival and growth of new firms.

This presentation will be in English only. Light hors d’oeuvres will be served.
