Building to grow or growing to build: insights from Irish high-growth SMEs (HGSMEs)

Introduction It is recognised that, relative to the population of small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), high-growth SMEs (HGSMEs) make a disproportionate contribution to economic growth. HGSMEs are frequently cited by policymakers and idealised by entrepreneurs with growth ambitions ( Volery et al., 2015 ). While extant research has identified factors that characterise HGSMEs, research has yet to provide a comprehensive explanation of the growth process. The objective of this paper is to extend this research by exploring triggers and transitions

Properties of alloys in the crystallization interval

Abstract

In the contribution the high growth of viscosity and initial stress of alloys in the crystallization interval with undercooling against of the liquidus follows from theoretical analysis. At these alloys used in pressure die casting the permissible undercooling that does not endanger pressure die casting operation. The application of the device for die temperature regulation ensures the safe operation.

Some models for immiscible displacements in Hele-Shaw cells

Abstract

We study the linear stability of the immiscible displacement of some fluids in 2D and 3D Hele-Shaw cell. We give a method for avoiding the singularities phenomenons which appears in previous papers. In the case of a non - Newtonian fluid displaced by air in a 3D Hele-Shaw cell, we give a growth constant σ of perturbations, which contains two new terms compared with the Saffman-Taylor formula. Our σ has a very high growth as a parameter appearing in the constitutive relations approaches a critical value.

The State of Gender Inequality in India

Abstract

Despite a high growth rate and plentiful Government measures to encourage gender equality, the gender gap still exists in India. Lack of gender equality not only limits women’s access to resources and opportunities, but also imperils the life prospects of the future generation. In the present article an attempt has been made to examine the problem of gender inequality in India. In this process, the article not only discusses the extent, causes and consequences of the problem, but also suggests policy measures to reduce gender inequality in India.

Venture Capital and Private Equity Investment Strategies in Selected European Countries

Abstract

Private equity and venture capital (PE/VC) funding is the provision of equity capital by financial investors to non-quoted companies with high growth potential. It has a particular emphasis on entrepreneurial activities rather than on mature businesses. PE/VC investors differ on several dimensions including: investment targets, screening evaluation methods, governance mechanisms, and objectives. The paper is a continuation of the discussion that concerns investment strategies of PE/VC funds. While studying the PE/VC market it is important to analyze the origin and structure of capital. The authors assumed that different types of investors have different investment strategies. Our research is an attempt to answer the following research question: whether the investor type, on the European PE/VC market, has an impact on the selection of industries. The paper presents results of statistical analysis of venture capital and private equity funds investment strategies in selected countries.

Fiscal Decentralization and Delivery of Public Services: Evidence from Education Sector in Pakistan

Abstract

Fiscal Decentralization is the devolution of fiscal assignments to lower governments for high growth and better delivery of public services. The current study covering the period from 1972 to 2009 is an attempt to find out the impacts of fiscal decentralization on public services deliveries in Pakistan. Public services are proxy by Gross enrollment at primary school level while fiscal decentralization by fiscal transfer and expenditure sides of devolution. Using time series data, it is found that the individual impacts of fiscal transfer are although insignificant but still support the theoretical proposition regarding fiscal decentralization and public services relationship while delegation of expenditure responsibilities helps in improving the gross enrollment at primary school level. Furthermore the study evident that complete delegation of fiscal responsibilities to lower governments enhance enrollment ratio in Pakistan.

THE INFLUENCE OF YEAR-ROUND WEATHER CONDITIONS AND FERTILIZATION ON THE PHYTOMASS YIELD OF AMARANTH (AMARANTHUS L.)

Abstract

In the years 2010 and 2011, a field trial was established in the administrative area Kolinany, Barack farm. We evaluated the growth of aboveground phytomass depending on different levels of fertilization. In the climatically unbalanced growing years, the phytomass yield of amaranth was different. Extremely wet conditions during the growing season exceeding long-term normal precipitation confirmed the assumption of high growth of aboveground phytomass in the observed amaranth genotype. In 2010, the highest amaranth aboveground dry matter in phytomass reached 3231.40 g m2 in the variant with the fertilization dose of 150 kg ha-1. In the climatically different year 2011 with lower precipitation, the highest aboveground phytomass yield of 3956.95 g m2 was reached in the fertilized variant as well.
