Thanks Austin! That is helpful. I will try successive cross sectional regressions and a survival analysis.

Best Regards

Reconceptualize your panel data as a cross-section of lives of firms.
You can describe subsequent trajectories, but you have a cross-section
of data on lifetime outcomes; firms are only founded once.  A survival
regression is one analysis to consider; see -help st- and -findit

I am interested in examining attributes of the founding context of these firms and their short, medium, and long-term impact on various measures of firm performance. In essence I want to test the imprinting hypothesis that posits that elements in the founding contexts will leave long lasting imprints on various firm characteristics. The founding conditions I like to test are:
> 1.Organizational origin of the firm ( I deal with spinoffs from a university or established firm), this is a dummy variable; 2. Market growth at the time of firm founding; this is a continuous variable 3. International experience of founding team, a dummy variable. My dependent variables are continuous or count.
> How can I estimate the parameters of these initial variables that are entered in my panel in the first year ? I use STATA 10.
