Article
A growing body of literature reveals that the emergence of hubris is by no means a rare phenomenon in leadership contexts. Despite having been repeatedly proven that hubris has both beneficial and detrimental manifestations in leadership behaviors, its positioning as a harmful cognitive bias continues to echo across disciplines. To unify the fragme...

The term diversity has raised much attention from scholars and practitioners alike to discuss how different viewpoints, mindsets, educational backgrounds, perspectives, and knowledge (or the lack thereof) contribute to the ongoing digitalization in a variety of industries [1, 4, 6].

The hubris tradition of research has been criticized for limiting its scope by associating hubris predominantly with detrimental leadership behaviors. To counteract this bias, we provide a more nuanced exploration of hubris and consider both beneficial and detrimental manifestations of hubris in startup founders’ leadership behaviors. Our analysis,...

The ongoing digitalization triggers the emergence of digital innovation potentials that lead to novel business opportunities for entrepreneurs across many industries (Henfridsson & Yoo, 2013).

Conference Paper

Research on digital innovation and women's entrepreneurship is increasing, but research in both areas largely exist in isolation from each other. We argue that bringing these streams of literature together yields interesting potentials for theorizing and conducting empirical studies in both fields. In particular, whether various identified obstacle...

Diesem verdanken sie seit dem Boom so genannter „Start-Ups“ im Umfeld der „New“ oder „Net Economy“ jedoch wesentlich ihre Prominenz (Gersch 2013). Mit der Gründungswelle in den 1990/2000er Jahren ging, im Zusammenhang mit der Entstehun...
