Other Project

The entrepreneurs who made Glasgow: the city and its businesses 1861-1901"
The Leverhulme Trust

Co-investigator on the Leverhulme Trust grant RPG-2020-382 Entrepreneurs are considered the engine of growth within an economy. But despite the literature that asserts that historic growth in cities was entrepreneurship-led, we lack sufficient research in city specific contexts and mechanisms. We view the history of business i.e. what businesses existed, their location, and who ran them, as an essential contribution to the debate about the historical transformation of economies. Focusing on Glasgow, we will take factors that are key to understanding economic development today and apply them to Glasgow's historical data to build a more holistic understanding of how migration, gender, age, and infrastructure shaped entrepreneurial activity.
