Short bio note

Esteban Lafuente is Professor in the Department of Management at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC Barcelona Tech). I completed my PhD. in Business Economics at the Autonomous University of Barcelona (Spain) in 2010.

I am Editor of Small Business Economics journal. I also served as Senior Researcher in the Catalan entrepreneurship observatory, Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM-Catalunya) between 2009 and 2013. During this period I co-organized, with Prof. Yancy Vaillant (TBS), the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor Research Conference on Entrepreneurship and Economic Development in Barcelona (June 2013).

My research work is mostly devoted to the economic analysis of organizations, with special emphasis on models of managerial economics and topics in applied econometrics. Additionally, I am interested in the problems and possibilities of entrepreneurial activities and business creation, and their economic benefits from a territorial perspective. My research has been published in a variety of journals, including among others Research Policy, Small Business Economics, Regional Studies, the International Journal of Production Economics, Safety Science, Applied Psychology: An International Review, Journal of Productivity Analysis, Journal of Technology Transfer, British Journal of Management, Journal of Business Research, and Entrepreneurship & Regional Development.

I published, jointly with Zoltan Acs (George Mason University), László Szerb (University of Pécs) and Ainsley Lloyd (University of Maryland), the 2018 edition of the Global Entrepreneurship and Development Index (Springer) in which we provide a rich understanding of country-level entrepreneurship, and present a detailed look at the quality and scale of the entrepreneurial ecosystem of 137 countries worldwide. I also published, together with my colleague Ferran Vendrell (University of Birmingham), a book on Entrepreneurship (2014: Emprender en la era digital: Tres casos de emprendedores con teoría integrada) where we seek to demystify and enhance our understanding on the entrepreneurial phenomenon and the challenges that entrepreneurs are faced with through three in-depth case studies. Finally, I received the Best Paper Award of the Iberoamerican Academy of Management(obriu en una finestra nova) in 2009 (Buenos Aires, Argentina).
