The Leibniz FH invites paper submission and contributions to its workshop on corporate rules & decision-making.

#Decisions 2022: Startups and Investment Decisions
October 6, 2022
Scientific Forum: 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Business Evening: 5 p.m. – 8 p.m.

Entrepreneurs have to make risky decisions and often require external funding for their projects. All this becomes even more pronounced for startups and their business models. This Leibniz Workshop seeks to bring together experienced researchers of that field to present and discuss their latest work throughout the day. Entrepreneurs and business people are invited to join the Business Evening for joint talks and a more “hands-on” perspective on the topic.

As a special guest, we welcome Christian Beuther (co-pace GmbH) who is the head operations at the startup co-operation program of Continental AG and will provide hands-on expertise in his keynote on industrial startup cooperation, proof-of-concept and partnership management.

We welcome contributions that are related to startups, entrepreneurship, funding and investment decisions. Submission of extended abstracts or presentations is acceptable, but priority will be given to completed manuscripts. We encourage submissions by young researchers at the PhD-level.

During the last two decades, digitization has fundamentally changed many industries, opened up new opportunities and created new innovation systems. The financial industry, one of the most traditional and conservative sectors, has recently also been confronted with disruptive technologies and Internet-based solutions. So-called FinTechs, i.e. companies that combine innovative technologies with financial services, are revolutionizing the financial world. The objective of this special issue of Credit and Capital Markets is to foster the understanding of the transformative role of digitization in the financial industry based on empirical and theoretical research methods.


Potential research topics (list is not conclusive):

  • Application of artificial intelligence in financial services
  • Cooperation between banks and FinTechs
  • Crowdfunding
  • Crypto assets and tokenization
  • FinTech and sustainable finance
  • FinTech and cyber security
  • Robo advice


Submissions follow the standard guidelines of the journal and are free of charge. Manuscripts have to be submitted in English. Each manuscript undergoes a double-blind peer review process. Please submit your manuscript at our online submission and editorial system or send it directly to one of the guest editors or the editorial office.

Market Microstructure Database Xetra

Der Lehrstuhl für Finanzierung der Universität Mannheim hat gemeinsam mit dem Center for Financial Studies in Kooperation mit der Deutschen Börse AG und gefördert durch die DFG eine Microstructure-Datenbank erstellt, die tägliche Daten aus Xetra für alle im CDAX enthaltenen Aktien und den Zeitraum 1999 bis 2013 enthält. Zu den enthaltenen Variablen gehören etwa quotierte und effektive Geld-Brief-Spannen und viele andere. Diese Datenbank ist für Forscher und ausschliesslich für Forschungszwecke kostenlos verfügbar, wobei aber ein formelles Prozedere einzuhalten ist. Das zum Download bereitgestellte pdf-Dokument enthält nähere Informationen.
