Doctoral dissertation: Childhood experiences affect many growth entrepreneurs’ path in entrepreneurship
Aarni Moisala, Lic. Sc. Econ, will defend his dissertation in entrepreneurship at Aalto Universty School of Business on Wednesday 5 December 2018.
In his doctoral dissertation, Moisala has developed methods for studying the factors related to the emergence of entrepreneurship. As one factor, Moisala has examined the significance of childhood experiences in the path of entrepreneurship, and conducted an extensive comparative study on Finnish and Estonian students’ entrepreneurship orientations. Moisala's research results can be utilised for developing entrepreneurship studies as well as identifying factors affecting exceptional inclination for growth.
‘In my research, I demonstrate how successful entrepreneurs’ creative processes arise and develop. According to my research, we can start studying future entrepreneurs’ business opportunity processes sooner than previously thought, and people participating in the research can also be active operators and not just passive subjects’, says Moisala.
In addition, this doctoral dissertation demonstrates how acting methods can be used for researching and learning entrepreneurship. Moisala combines the research methods of science and art and opens new cooperative opportunities for research groups consisting of people with versatile skills.
