BA, PhD

Job Title:

Professor in Innovation and Entrepreneurship; Director of Studies MSc in Entrepreneurship and Management

Division:

Strategy & Organisation

Key Research Interests:

New firm survival, exit strategies, innovation and M&A.

Research Interests

My work focuses on the survival and exit of entrepreneurial firms. I am interested in the factors that influence the decision of entrepreneurs about when and how to exit, by closing the business or selling it, and the implications after exit, for individual career paths and organizational knowledge transfer.

PhD Supervision

Doctoral students who would like to pursue their research in the area of innovation and entrepreneurship are very much welcome to contact me.
