When equity crowdfunding becomes more than a last resort for entrepreneurs By @Tobias Pret and @Aviel Cogan   Raising capital is a challenging process for most entrepreneurs, leading some to pursue equity crowdfunding. While it has been regarded as a last resort in prior literature, recent research shows that some highly capable entrepreneurs prefer to seek equity crowdfunding, even when more established options, such as angel investments or venture capital, are available to them. Prior studies that explore equity crowdfunding have predominantly focused on the decision-making of potential investors, rather than the role of the entrepreneur, in initiating ...

When you think of buying investment property in either Costa Rica or Belize, how do you know which one is better? After all, both countries have warm, tropical climates and both offer affordable real estate.  Both countries are part of Central America. Costa Rica has strong relations with the USA and Belize still maintains strong ties with the UK so one has to wonder where to invest in real estate between the two.    Costa Rica’s team of excellent real estate agents   Buying property in Costa Rica is a wise move but to move to Costa Rica will require you to meet immigration requirements. It’s a wonderfully safe Latin American country so ...

Colleen, you recently joined the TIM Executive Committee as an At-Large member - thank you for your service! So… What are your research interests right now? My current research interests relate to frictions in the commercialization of innovation. My interest in this began with a question I had while working on research pre-PhD: “why do we get so little out of all the research money we spend in terms of new stuff?” Of course, this is very broad! Right now, there are a few areas that I’m particularly interested in. First, I’m interested in understanding ...

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to help with Literature Reviews posted on behalf of @Aviel Cogan and @Tobias Pret   Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are hot topics.
