My research centers on the cognitive processes supporting entrepreneurship and strategy. In practice, I articulate this interest along three main areas of study:
1) The identification of entrepreneurial, strategic and international opportunities;
2) The evaluation of new venture funding presentations by bankers, angels and venture capitalists; and
3) Entrepreneurs’ decisions to expand their firm’s activities in foreign markets (international entrepreneurship).
In doing this research, I have developed an interest for using a broad variety of qualitative and quantitative methods. Along the way, I have developed some expertise in construct validation, research designs and analytical techniques that I leverage across all three areas of investigation, in my coaching of doctoral students, and in my services as a journal reviewer / editorial board member.
- Opportunity identification
- New venture presentations
- Early internationalization
