PhD defence: Diego Zunino

In order to obtain the PhD degree, Diego Zunino has submitted his thesis entitled: Socio-Cognitive Perspectives in Business Venturing

Fredag, 22 juni, 2018 - 13:00 to 15:00

In this dissertation, I borrow relevant socio-cognitive constructs from the field of strategy and employ them to four relevant steps of the venture creation process. The first essay looks at the relationship between institutional and individual factors as antecedents of entrepreneurial activity. The second essay looks at the problem of resource acquisition when entrepreneurs have experienced business failure in the past. The third essay addresses the problem of recruitment. The fourth essay looks at the step of technology product launch. Through diverse theories and methodologies, the dissertation provides empirical support to the role perceptions play during the entrepreneurship process, and suggests rhetorical strategies entrepreneurs can exploit to gather resources and achieve competitive advantage.
