Article
Full-text available
A growing body of scholarship studies the emergence of moral markets—sectors offering market-based solutions to social and environmental issues. To date, researchers have largely focused on the drivers of firm entry into these values-laden sectors. However, we know comparatively little about postentry dynamics or the determinants of firm survival i...
Article
Full-text available
Our study addresses a popular question in entrepreneurship research-to what extent does the quality of a region's entrepreneurial ecosystem matter for venture survival? To tackle this question, we created a regional entrepreneurial ecosystem quality index based on five key characteristics: supportive entrepreneurial culture, access to finance, avai...
Article
Full-text available
Insufficiency of research and theory on the relationships between entrepreneurship and grand challenges means that we know little about who engages and what repertoires of actions they take to tackle socioenvironmental challenges that transcend firms, markets and nations, and what sorts of solutions they create. Drawing on the five articles feature...
Article
In this study, we examine the relationship between the regional entrepreneurial ecosystem (REE) and the performance of U.S. venture capital (VC)-backed startups. We conceptualize the REE as a complex system, and pair a variance decomposition methodology with a fuzzy set qualitative comparative analysis (fsQCA) to study the configurations (combinati...
Article
Full-text available
Diffusion of environmentally beneficial practices is often portrayed as either the result of regulatory action or the heroic leadership of powerful actors within an industry. But, is this characterization accurate or universal? We assert that the transition toward environmentally beneficial practices within an industry is a journey that involves th...
Conference Paper
Market entry by entrepreneurs and incumbent firms lead to categories to emerge, thus institutionalizing new organizational forms.The process through which this market category is formed and legitimized among multiple audiences, is theoretically understudied. We bridge this gap by empirically exploring such longitudinal trajectories using big data a...
Conference Paper
There has been growing interesting in understanding the emergence and dynamics of regional entrepreneurial ecosystems. Much of the current work has focused on tangible, physical elements such as the role of incubators, accelerators, mentors, and universities. Comparatively less attention has been paid to the intangible aspects of entrepreneurial ec...
Article
Full-text available
Founders face a variety of challenges while working to establish a viable start-up. In order to successfully overcome the many pressures that they face, founders must make difficult choices about how to allocate their time and how much effort to exert in their ventures. These founders are also embedded in a broader social context, and their efforts...
Article
We examine how social cues drive strategic decision making under uncertainty, specifically in the context of U.S. VC firms’ first internationalization decisions. We compare the relative impacts of cues from a) geographically proximal firms; b) syndicate partners; and c) VCs investing in the same industries as the focal firm. Over the 23 year period...

Human-induced climate change is one of the most daunting challenges of the 21st century. Addressing climate change will require new sectors that create economically and ecologically sustainable products and services, often supported through voluntary certification standards. For example, the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) volu...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In this empirical study, we integrate findings from prior work and examine how the propensity of inventors to patent in renewable energy is driven by a combination of micro (e.g. inventor demographics), meso (e.g. small word regional inventor networks), and macro (e.g. federal policies) level factors. We focus on renewable energy innovations within...
Conference Paper
A foundational question across the strategic management literature is what drives firms to be similar or different from one another. For example, research on firm actions in the face of uncertainty finds that such contexts can induce firms to engage in imitative behaviors. Existing work in this area provides important insights, however, we argue th...
Conference Paper
This paper compares the funding dynamics of startup-firms located in “VC Centers” (Bay Area, Boston, New York), versus those that are situated outside these centers In doing so, we extend current literature that has predominantly explored the local and non-local (spatial geography) interactions of VCs and startups in and among these three regions....
Article
To confirm the correlation between planning and thermal injury of the prostate as determined by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and histology in canine and humans treated with transurethral ultrasound. Canine studies: 2 sets of in vivo studies were performed under general anesthesia in 1.5 T clinical MRI. Nine dogs were treated using single transd...
Article

We studied the evolution of stretch reflexes in relation to background electromyographic (EMG) activity in the soleus muscle preceding the onset of voluntary arm raise movements. Our objective was to investigate if changes in reflex EMG and muscle activity occur simultaneously and are similarly scaled in amplitude. Ten human subjects stood with eac...
Conference Paper
Previous work from our group has shown that transurethral ultrasound therapy, with a single ultrasound transducer guided by temperature feedback from a single MRI plane (slice), can be used to treat a targeted region accurately in the prostate gland. We have extended this approach to a larger, 3D, targeted volume within the prostate, using a multi‐...
Thesis
Peripheral muscle stretch reflexes at the calf muscles have been shown to be important in postural control, by opposing forward sway. They are task dependent, and vary based on the conditions at the joint and associated muscle activation levels. Also, dynamic changes in stability, such as those induced by upper body movements, are preceded by antic...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Dynamic changes in human stability, such as those induced by upper body movements, are preceded by anticipatory postural adjustments (APAs) in the rest of the body. We measured the excitability of the stretch reflex of the triceps-surae muscle group during APAs associated with unilateral right arm raises in standing humans. Our results demonstrate...
