Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue focuses on the roles of technological advancements and managerial risks to support economic growth. In this research context, the Special Issue is accommodating novel research approaches on the various types of risk that impact economic growth, either at micro- or macroeconomic levels of analysis. Under this pluralistic approach, this Special Issue covers all multileveled types of risk in market, credit, microfinancing, operational, strategic, liquidity, regulatory, reputational, and innovative, which all determine economic growth in different organizational or national contexts of prosperity. Research objectives should be private-owned SMEs, public-directed organizations, and developed and fast emerging developing economies worldwide. The level of defining moderating risks and pursuing innovation and profitability at each one of these micro-, meso-, and macroscales of analysis remains an especially intrinsic and challenging issue.

Considering that SMEs are facing difficulties in collecting external finance compared to their larger counterparts, as well as the fact of managerial and organizational inertia among public-directed organizations to adopt innovative technologies of their services offered, this Special Issue welcomes theoretical, conceptual, and empirical articles on new and innovative approaches to financing different stages of organizational (SME, public, national) decisions supporting them in entering niche markets and achieving their economic growth. Further, the Special Issue welcomes but is not restricted to contributions on novel technological advancements, measures, and instruments and strategic plans dedicated to private-owned SMEs or public-directed organizations. Such interdisciplinary approaches are also expanded to cover other issues/dimensions related to responsible financing, such as investing on human resource management or team working capital in order to overcome entrepreneurial risks and to achieve economic growth. 

If your research interests are related to the topics above, I would be more than happy to accommodate your research works in this Special Issue.

Dr. Grigorios L. Kyriakopoulos
