My research interests lie primarily in the fields of entrepreneurship and innovation. I am particularly interested in how we can channel individuals into directions of entrepreneurial activity that are most productive to themselves, the organization(s) that they belong to (if any), and/or the society at large.
Entrepreneurial activity can take place both inside and outside the boundaries of established firms (intrapreneurship and entrepreneurship, respectively). In turn, following Baumol (1990), we may distinguish between productive, unproductive or even destructive forms of entrepreneurial activity.
Productive may be happiness, job satisfaction or wage income/profits at the individual level, (growth of) sales or profits at the firm level, and macroeconomic growth – for example, in terms of employment levels or labor productivity – at the country level.
