2010 marked the completion of data collection for year three (Wave 3) of the CAUSEE study. This report uses data from the first three years. Australia’s population is noted for its mixed international background. The ABS 2006 census reports showed that almost a quarter of Australian population were born overseas, contributing to a high degree of cultural diversity. This report examines the international background and experience of Australian business founders as well as their aspired and actual participation in international markets. In this research briefing paper, we compare Nascent Firm (NF) and Young Firm (YF) groups and also ‘Regular’ start-ups in both categories with their High Potential counterparts. When we compare characteristics at one point in time the analysis uses data from the first interview and sample sizes are of the order indicated in Figure 1. When we compare development over time the analysis includes only those cases that have survived and continued to participate in the study over three years, which means that the samples are smaller. Unless otherwise stated the findings we comment on are ‘statistically significant’. That is, there is less than 5 per cent risk that they would appear by chance if there is no true difference in the population from which the samples were drawn.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
