Professor Kalafsky to discuss location-based characteristics of high-growth firms October 21

high-growth-firms_kalafsky_10-21-16Ronald Kalafsky, professor of geography, will present¬†“High-Growth Firms–Where Are They?” at the next UT Science Forum Friday, October 21.

High-growth firms, especially smaller companies, receive attention from policymakers due to their possible contributions to regional economic development. In his presentation, Kalafsky will discuss the location-based characteristics of high-growth smaller firms in the United States, including the metropolitan areas where such firms (and industries) tend to cluster. Are they located in the expected areas (e.g., Silicon Valley), or are there other factors involved?

The UT Science Forum takes place Friday, October 21 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. in the Thompson-Boling Arena Cafe (located at 1600 Phillip Fulmer Way), Rooms C-D.

Guests are encouraged to bring their lunch or purchase it from the arena. Each presentation is followed by a Q&A. The event is free and open to the public.

Additionally, this year, we have temporary parking passes available for our guests who do not have UT parking passes. An RSVP is required for the pass. Please email Amanda Womac for more details.
