Public policy can shift the economic composition and outputs of a region or ecosystem. Many policy makers promote entrepreneurship under the assumption of a link between new ventures and economic growth and job creation. Such promotion makes to two important assumptions. First, that there is such a link despite it being hotly debated in literature. Second, that policy is informed by this debate. This project explores the (dis)connection between municipal entrepreneurship policy and the academic literature, using the City of Sydney’s recent Tech Startups Action Plan as a case study.
