Abstract

In these troubled times, with investors unsure of when or where to place their funds for maximum benefit, one investment tenet should be clear: bet on entrepreneurs. Our research of 27,000 publicly traded global companies, employing more than 12 years worth of data, demonstrates that entrepreneurial companies consistently outperform peer nonentrepreneurial companies by a wide margin. Following the tumultuous market collapse in 2008–2009, it appears that entrepreneurial companies are now poised to perform better than ever.
