My Research

Digital entrepreneurship and dynamic digital capabilities are the two pillars of my research – while digital entrepreneurship is my focal research domain, I use dynamic digital capabilities as the key concept that guides my studies.


I believe there is much scholarly work to be done to understand digital entrepreneurship and innovation using a capability-based perspective. Specifically, I am interested in investigating how dynamic digital capabilities enable startups and business incubators to recognize and appropriate value from digital technologies.
Research Interests:

The value of digital technologies to startups and business incubators

Value co-creation in the entrepreneurial ecosystems
