The tenth webinar in the SMS E&S Insights Series will feature Martin Ganco, University of Wisconsin presenting "From Ideas to New Ventures: Exploring How Established Firms Give Rise to Employee Entrepreneurship."
Exploring how startups emerge from new ideas has been at the core of entrepreneurship research. Over the last decade, we have accumulated a much better understanding of the role that established firms play in this process. However, many important questions remain. In this webinar, I will focus on discussing several research projects examining the role of employees’ ideas and knowledge acquired in the context of established firms as a precursor of employee entrepreneurship. I will also discuss some novel data sources and empirical approaches that may help us advance research in this domain. Importantly, the webinar will be an opportunity to go beyond individual research studies and discuss broader connections of this research stream. For instance, I will explore the connections between employee entrepreneurship and elements of the legal environment, long-term technological trends, changing nature of competition and macro trends in entrepreneurial activity.
