This systematic literature review aims at filling this gap by analysing innovation process theories and approaches with a s...

Despite its widespread occurrence, the topic of failure is barely addressed in entrepreneurship education. Consequently, students are given an incomplete and unrealistic picture of the complexity of being entrepreneurs. This study explores the pedagogical potential of introducing vicarious learning about failure in educational programs rather than...

International entrepreneurship (IE) as a field of research has emerged at the intersection of internationalization and entrepreneurship theories. At this intersection it has come to emphasize the activities centered on international opportunities. International opportunities, then, are about value creation and competitive imperfections in internati...
Conference Paper
Entrepreneurship is increasingly recognized as a vehicle for reducing inequalities. However, we argue that the prevailing individualistic focus on opportunity pursuit inadequately explains why many entrepreneurial efforts fail, particularly in the domain of foreign direct investment (FDI). Through our embedded case study of a Korean FDI in Cambodia...
Article
Previous bankruptcy is often seen as sign of poor entrepreneurial skills but few have examined whether renascent entrepreneurs actually perform worse or better upon reentering and how performance differences might be explained. Using a sample of 1,745 Dutch SMEs firms of which 67 were managed by renascent entrepreneurs this study examines potential...

How firms grow forms a key question in the research on small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Based on a survey amongst 1,535 SMEs, we show that the presence of growth capability factors, such as, innovation capacity, financing capacity and human capital, offers inadequate explanation for differences in the level of growth between SMEs in a spe...

e examine to what extent bankrupt entrepreneurs are stigmatized in the mass media.

These dif...

Social network embeddedness lowers the transaction costs for firms’ entrepreneurs and enables them to obtain access to information and resources at a price below market-costs. We argue that the access to and use of this entrepreneurial social capital entails a complex interplay of structural, relational and mobilization dimensions both at the local...

Article
Valorization of research results is becoming increasingly important today. Since academic research should not only contribute to our "quest for fundamental understanding," but it also needs to "consider use" (Stokes, 1997); these dual goals give rise to tension in academic institutes that need to carefully balance research and its exploitation (Amb...

Among the factors that contribute to this decline, the Tanzanian entrepreneurial environment plays an ambivalent role. Based on the concept of entrepreneurial embeddedness, the personal stories of...
Article
Previous studies suggest that the majority of global startups have no choice but to operate across borders from day one (e.g., Oviatt and McDougall, 1994) to pursue their opportunities. Yet, few studies have explored how the opportunities for such firms come into existence and drive the emergence of global startups. In this chapter, we describe the...

Universities combine theory & practice, they also set standards of future work practices, therefore Lecturers NEED up-to-date, reliable information to develop modern course curricula. Thus, the objective of Digital Innovation is clear: to gain a better understanding of how small service companies currently undertake new product development so that we can improve how innovation in services is taught.
