The focus of my research is the intersection of students, high impact entrepreneurship and U.S. research universities, specifically exploring how and why students identify entrepreneurial opportunities and begin the firm formation process on campus (think Google, Nike, Dominos Pizza, Terracyle — to name a few, very public examples).
My research questions focus on the processes students go through as they identify entrepreneurial opportunities and launch high impact firms on campuses and also what higher education assets, institutions and infrastructure entrepreneurs employ in indentifying entrepreneurial opportunities and launching high growth firms on campus?
I am in the process of creating case studies of two research universities in the U.S. and also creating and analyzing the first data base of high impact student entrepreneurs. I am interviewing entrepreneurs, professors, investors, and others involved with high growth firms created on campuses. Please email the names of companies or individuals that should be included in this work. Thank you.
