Entrepreneurship-as-Practice (posted on behalf of @Aviel Cogan and @Tobias Pret ) Whereas strategy-as-practice has become an important alternative to the dominant institutional and resource-based views of strategy research, Entrepreneurship-as-Practice (EaP) has not received adequate attention to date, especially from top tier entrepreneurship journals. As a result, there are enduring gaps in our understanding of the relational and processual nature of entrepreneurial activities. For example, while entrepreneurial resourcing has been shown to have a significant impact on the abilities of entrepreneurs to successfully develop their ventures, little ...

Reviewer 2 Who? Academic Reviewing as a Doctoral Student (posted on behalf of @Sai Kalvapalle ) It’s mid-January as I write this, which means a lot of us doctoral students are coming up for air after a hectic conference submission period. What better way to recover from the holiday season than to push those manuscripts forward, and almost earn a separate doctorate in word count manipulation? There is a rule of thumb in (management) research now that I gathered at the last AOM ENT Doctoral Consortium: editors implore that for every manuscript you submit, you should review 3 manuscripts (because at least 3 others review your work). After all, peer ...

Navigating a PhD in Entrepreneurship (post on behalf of @Sai Kalvapalle , ENT Division PhD representative) Hello readers! My name is Sai Kalvapalle, and I am the new ENT division PhD representative, which puts me in the amazing position of writing bi-monthly blog posts for what I hope is a captive audience. With these blog posts, I aim to provide a student perspective into topics of interest for the entrepreneurship community. The beauty of such a community, I find, is how diverse, cross-disciplinary, and strong the scholarship is, both theoretically and empirically. Plus, we have the added advantage of being inspired everyday by how entrepreneurs ...

Why do Barefoot Entrepreneurs Stay Poor? (posted on behalf of @Tobias Pret and @Aviel Cogan) Entrepreneurship has long been recognized as a route out of poverty and a means to challenge the status quo. However, within the global south, research has shown that barefoot entrepreneurs, who are marginalized and socially excluded, often remain impoverished despite their successful efforts to pursue entrepreneurial activities and change institutions. While prior studies have explored the creative approaches that such individuals adopt to overcome potential barriers, little is known about the forces and actors that work to prevent barefoot entrepreneurs ...

Let us introduce Raffaele Conti of ESSEC Business School which is northwest of Paris in Cergy-Pontoise, France. Raffaele, you recently joined the TIM Executive Committee as an At Large member, so… What are your research interests right now? My research has always aimed to understand the role and place of institutions, or the rules of the game that define what individuals and organizations can or cannot do. In particular, I have focused on how formal institutions (e.g., IPR laws) can affect innovation and entrepreneurship. Right now, I am continuing to work on institutions, even if possibly from a different angle, as I have been increasingly fascinated by ...

The Double-Edged Sword of Prosocial Power (posted on behalf of @Tobias Pret and @Aviel Cogan ) Not all social entrepreneurs are unsung heroes who manage to address unsolved societal problems. While social entrepreneurship has long been portrayed as a force of good that can empower disadvantaged people, there is a growing recognition that it can also cause unexpected, detrimental societal impacts such as crime and social exclusion. Whether social entrepreneurs are aware of it or not, they wield the power to impact the lives of others not only positively but also negatively, even if this happens unintentionally or indirectly. Given that many ...

Working Remotely, Abroad (posted on behalf of @Andrew Nixon , Ph.D. Student Representative) I didn’t expect to spend the bulk of my doctorate at home. My master's had been full of conference travel, events, and hanging out on campus without fear of getting infected with anything worse than the common cold. Before agreeing to apply to my Ph.D. program, I had negotiated with my supervisor to spend four semesters abroad, part of this was to mitigate my cardinal sin of staying at one university for all three degrees — I knew I needed to expand my network beyond the campus I was becoming too comfortable with. I started my Ph.D. in Fall 2019, so I had ...
