Dr. Katherina Kuschel studies women founders of technology ventures at CENTRUM Graduate Business School and Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú.
Funded by the DAAD and the KIT International Excellence Fellowship Kuschel is studying softlanding programs and expatpreneurs at EnTechnon.
Her current research interests are enabling entrepreneurial ecosystems for women, fundraising, technology ventures, sustainable business models, entrepreneurial failure, and “subjective” measures of success.
She has also participated in entrepreneurial training programs for necessity-driven and indigenous profiles of women in South America and is a research consultant for the GEET+ project on entrepreneurial education.
Besides leading a research group on work-life issues among entrepreneurs, she participated as guest editor at the International Entrepreneurship and Management Journal on Women Entrepreneurship within STEM fields and a Routledge edited book entitled The Wellbeing of Women in Entrepreneurship.
