Our Research Interests

Entrepreneurship is an emerging and important research field in business, economics, and psychology. Our goal is to help develop this field and improve our understanding of entrepreneurial individuals and organizations. One part of our research takes a psychological perspective and investigates entrepreneurial cognition and decision making. Our second research stream follows a business perspective and tries to understand the behavior of young organizations and factors that contribute to their success. Since addressing these issues requires theoretical and methodological knowledge at the intersection between various disciplines including management, psychology, economics, sociology, and natural sciences, our team is interdisciplinary and composed of researchers with diverse backgrounds and qualifications.

In a nutshell, our research topics include the following:
Entrepreneurial cognition
International entrepreneurship
Entrepreneurial teams
Affect in entrepreneurship
Corporate entrepreneurship
