Doctoral Research Project - Co-evolutionary Entrepreneurship

We live in a global world but do we see a start-up launched globally even though opportunity and ideas exist across the globe? Why this happens?

To better understand this we have a doctoral research project on “co-evolutionary entrepreneurship” within the EnTechnon, where our doctoral student (Ashutosh Kumar) is looking at the opportunities and challenges of start-up internationalization with a strong focus on startups in India and Germany. The research is also envisaged to come up with a model on how this could be expedited for early value realization without diluting the initial focus on developing core market.

If you would like to know more about research, would like to nominate a start-up to be part of the research or participate in the research please reach out to Ashutosh directly at: ashutoshgroup@gmail.com
