Professor Cressy has in the course of his career published over 40 papers in learned journals together with over 40 reports and book chapters. His research in the area of entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial finance has emphasised the role of human capital in determining both capitalisation of the business and its survival: finance usually flows towards business talent and ideas.

The lecture will review his main contributions to the academic literature in entrepreneurial finance in the last twenty years showing how these have advanced understanding of the connections between entrepreneurship, human capital, finance and performance.  This will be followed by illustrations of the direction his research is expected to take over the next five years.

We look forward to seeing you at Professor Cressy’s Inaugural Lecture. As places are limited, please book early. If we can be of any assistance, please do get in touch.
