Entrepreneurial Ecosystems (EEs) are expected to support high growth entrepreneurship. Yet, little is known about how they actually promote entrepreneurial activities. Based on Giddens’ structuration theory, this paper takes the entrepreneurs’ perspective to understand how they actually use the resources provided by an EE. Based on semi-structured...

As physical distancing is a core measure of containing the spread of COVID-19, this pandemic is a crisis that has uprooted social interaction. While current research mainly focuses on crises as a challenge for entrepreneurial ventures and potential regulatory response mechanisms, we complement this research by addressing the question of how crises...

How do crises impact entrepreneurship? And how can entrepreneurs contribute to mitigating the consequences of crises? Based on two empirical research projects, I take a double perspective on entrepreneurship and crisis: First, I focus on how solo-entrepreneurs cope with the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic in a joint research project with Isabell Stamm, Lena Schürmann, and Arne Maibaum. Second, I analyze how entrepreneurs can contribute to mitigating the consequences of physical distancing during Covid-19 through digital social innovation (joint research project with Ali Aslan Gümüsay, Franziska Günzel-Jensen, Grogi Krlev, and Miriam Wolf).

How do innovative start-ups and university spin-offs form interorganizational ties? We argue that this is influenced by the social context, and more precisely, by its tie formation scripts. In this qualitative case study, we compare investment tie formation in Silicon Valley and in Berlin to show how different tie formation scripts enable and constrain different tie formation practices.
