In March of 2009, the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland and the Kauffman Foundation jointly hosted a workshop on entrepreneurial finance that brought together scholars in the field. The goal of the workshop was to present new empirical research that exploits data sets on entrepreneurial activity that are based on broad and representative data samples. The research presented employed data from relatively new survey instruments, such as the Kauffman Firm Survey, as well as data from well-established programs, such as the Survey of Small Business Finances. Additionally, some of the data sets highlighted are in the public domain, while others are available to researchers only through restricted access.
