About the FIVE Project

The FIVE Project aims to accelerate and broaden the reach of research on firm and industry evolution and related areas of entrepreneurship. The FIVE Project has obtained commitments from a number of scholars of industry evolution to make their data freely available on this website, along with documentation. These data sets are industry-specific, and include annual data on the firms and products in each industry, often over long time periods. We welcome data contributions from other researchers, as well as augmentation of the original data. For additional information, contact Professor Constance Helfat. (constance.helfat@dartmouth.edu)
