The advent of new technologies, such as artificial intelligence, automation, and cloud computing is opening up new possibilities for businesses and societies. New technologies also support entrepreneurial activity, while risk-taking, ambitious entrepreneurs are fundamental to harnessing these news technologies and to creating new innovations and growth pathways. The Entrepreneurship, Technology, and Economic Development project studies the linkages between these three areas—entrepreneurship, new technologies, economic development—at the macro level, and the determinants of entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial success at the micro level.
This research effort evaluates the ways in which new technologies affect regional entrepreneurship and employment. In this context, Principal Investigator Yong Suk Lee examines the differential effects of industrial robots on small and young firms as opposed to large and mature firms. Lee also studies the impact of entrepreneurship on regional growth and how government guaranteed small business loans affect regional economies.
