Entrepreneurial Leadership

We focus on entrepreneurial leadership in technology-based business taking in multiple perspectives on technology entrepreneurship, from self-managed businesses to corporate entrepreneurship.
Entrepreneurial Leadership

Because business is increasingly dependent on different networks of individuals and organisations, collaboration in business ecosystems is a critical success factor for creating and transforming technology-based enterprises.

Our mission is to promote entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial thinking for the success of companies, public organizations and society at large. Our research and teaching in this area involves elements of learning by doing, concentrating on the factors that affect sustainable growth and renewal of business in technology-intensive environments. With particular emphasis on engineering and innovation, the center of interest is on entrepreneurial leadership, including intrapreneurship, managing startup business, self-leadership, as well as entrepreneurial thinking in all technology-intensive arenas.
