(posted on behalf of @Andrew Nixon , PhD Representative) ​ Okay, I’ll admit it, if I have a bent in this blog series, it has been to highlight the shift in policy towards a more progressive version of antitrust enforcement (or competition policy for those outside of the U.S.) and how these issues are relevant for our field. I will say this one last piece and then get back to writing the generic posts with tips and tricks for PhD students and interviews with faculty. So, here are three reasons I think this is a fruitful area of exploration for entrepreneurship scholars: 1) Entrepreneurs themselves are openly saying that something is ...

(posted on behalf of @Tobias Pret and @Aviel Cogan ) ​ Entrepreneurs who operate in nascent markets are often faced with a lack of support. One way to arouse interest in and enthusiasm for a new venture within those markets is to pitch the idea in ways that explicitly tie the venture to emerging hype about the nascent market—a collective vision and promise for the market’s future. In so doing, hype can serve as a means to generate early access to resources and other forms of support from stakeholders. However, the more entrepreneurs link their new ventures to such emerging hype, the greater the risk that they will face heightened expectations which ...

A recent survey shows that most Americans work more than 40 hours per week. After work, they rush home and spend more hours catching up on the news, playing games, watching movies, or socializing. Combined, Americans spend most of their time sitting. This is one of the reasons why many Americans are obese. Exercise is an essential component in the life of every individual. Unfortunately, the long working hours leave many people with no time to exercise. Employers can encourage exercise culture in the workplace. Both the workers and employers benefit in different ways. Exercising time means fewer sick leaves Exercise will help them control their weight ...

Translating knowledge (posted on behalf of @Andrew Nixon , PhD Representative) In my interview with Donato Cutolo and Professor Martin Kenney ( read it here ), we kept returning to the role of antitrust regulation in improving the competition landscape for the benefit of entrepreneurs. The past few years have seen a marked increase in policy conversations on competition law (what is typically referred to as antitrust in the U.S.), as a progressive, anti-monopolist perspective has gained traction in both America and Europe. This school of thought pushes back against what has been the dominant paradigm of regulations and judicial rulings that ...

The dark side of entrepreneurship (posted on behalf of @Aviel Cogan and @Tobias Pret ) Entrepreneurship is usually associated with the creation of economic and social wealth, but it can also have negative effects, such as the pollution of the environment and damage to local communities. Thus far, research has largely overlooked this dark side of entrepreneurship. Indeed, little is known about the reasons entrepreneurs might engage in actions that can lead to destructive outcomes. Dean Shepherd, Moses Osofero, and Joakim Wincent address this subject in their recent Journal of Business Venturing article titled “A personal adversity model of justifying ...
