The research mandate of the Lazaridis Institute is to investigate the key issues facing managers of technology firms as they move from start-up to stay-up and then, scale up in global markets.

Recognizing that management challenges to smart growth come in many forms, our insights are generated by a cross-disciplinary team of scholars. We work with technology companies, both local and global. We partner with other research institutions and collaborate with doctoral students at the leading edge of new research areas pertinent to high growth technology firms.

Our research is guided by two focused themes:

  1. Managing through the scale-up process; and
  2. Scaling to be globally competitive.
