Within this secondary subject, Frederic Le Roy focus his research on the determining factors of success in creating ICT enterprises. Using the SINE Data Base of INSEE, the first research question looks at both the geographical and economical factors when deciding on localisation of the enterprise. The econometric models permit to determine the explicative impacts of the factors such as: Effect of the metropolitan area and the proximity, etc.
The second research question distinguishes three potential explanatory factors of success for new ICT enterprises: The human capital of the founder, the preparation of the creation of the enterprise and the structural characteristics of the enterprise. The success is grasped in the terms of survival and growth of the enterprise.
