Abstract(s)This chapter aims at presenting how survival analysis methods can be used to study topics related to entrepreneurship. The availability of data that allow the identification of how long a subject is in a state, represents an opportunity to study transitions from one state to another taking into account the length of each spell. In this chapter I use the example of the time that a startup firm takes to leave a business incubator and go through the econometric specification of a continuous time parametric model applied to the study of transitions into multiple possible destinations. I also discuss some alternatives to this specification, such as the Cox Proportional Hazards model and discrete time duration models.
