Walsh Study Brief Published in Dow Jones Newswire

External News Details

A news brief on research being conducted by School of Public Policy professor John Walsh on the impact of startups was published in Dow Jones Newswires.

"Startups may play a disproportionate role as sources of invention in US manufacturing relative to older, larger firms, according to a recently released analysis of survey data from researchers at Duke University's Fuqua School of Business and the Georgia Institute of Technology (John Walsh). About 14% of roughly 650 firms which introduced a new product between 2007 and 2009 said they sourced the underlying invention from a new, small firm, suggesting "that a greater proportion of startups may be acting as a source of invention than there are startups in the manufacturing sector as a whole," explains Wesley Cohen, one of the researchers from Duke." - July 15, 2014
