To succeed in today’s global and dynamic economy, entrepreneurs and organizational leaders need to be innovative decision-makers and moderate risk-takers. In this context, how can they navigate the process from the conception of an idea to the launch of a new product to its sustained impact on the economy? This group of interdisciplinary scholars will examine how novel ideas are conceived, developed into new products, services, and programs, how they are strategically managed, and finally if and how this trajectory can be sustained and rejuvenated for generations to come.

Research Objectives

Telfer’s ASI in Entrepreneurship, Innovation, and Strategic Management consists of a group of interdisciplinary scholars interested in the value creation process from first ideas leading to the launch of effective products, services, and programs to the strategic management and ultimate impact and benefits of these new products/services/programs. Our group’s diverse interests are reflected in the

  • various actors whom we study (e.g., women entrepreneurs, family business owners, immigrant entrepreneurs, business incubators, health care professionals),
  • the diverse contexts that we look at (e.g., private, government, international), and
  • the different outcomes we consider (e.g., new venture creation, firm growth and performance, transgenerational value creation, social and economic benefits)
