Entrepreneurship involves the identification and creation of new opportunities and technologies, ventures, products and markets. Entrepreneurship can take place within new or existing firms, and often entails innovation and filling market gaps.
Ivey’s Entrepreneurship group researches different elements of entrepreneurship at multiple levels of analysis, especially as it relates to understanding what leads entrepreneurs to be successful. This includes research on entrepreneurial cognition and decision making; new venture creation; entrepreneurial firm growth and performance; entrepreneurial strategy, innovation and the role of technology; family business; the economics of entrepreneurship and comparative international entrepreneurship.
Faculty in the Entrepreneurship group have regularly published in premier management, entrepreneurship and technology journals, including the Academy of Management Journal, the Academy of Management Review, Entrepreneurship Theory & Practice, Journal of Business Venturing, Management Science, MIS Quarterly, Small Business Economics, Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal, and Strategic Management Journal, among others.
