Lufthansa Group Chair in Innovation Open Lecture
Organizing early-stage entrepreneurship: the role of autonomy in choosing collaborators and ideas
Entrepreneurs face fewer hierarchies that assign people to tasks and collaborators. But it is often unclear whether this leads to better outcomes as it is hard to imagine a counterfactual. In other words, when given the luxury to choose collaborators, do we choose people that are “good” for us? In this presentation, Linus Dahlander, Associate Professor of Strategy and the Lufthansa Group Chair in Innovation, will present novel research he and Rajshri Jayaraman, Associate Professor of Economics at ESMT, have performed with Prof. Christoph Ihl and Viktoria Boss from Technical University of Hamburg. New evidence from a randomized control trial will shed light on the fascinating question of choosing the "right" collaborators.
