Anders Theis Bollmann is a PhD Fellow at the Department of Business Humanities and Law at CBS.

His PhD research focuses on entrepreneurialism understood as a specific ideology and a broader epistemic culture and its relationship to defense policy and military institutions. Concretely he seeks to understand the conceptual, practical, institutional, and material aspects of entrepreneurialism’s permeation into western military institutions and how it is transforming the way these institutions think, organize and act. Currently, his work focuses on military design thinking and (2) military technological innovation as two instances as specific manifestations of entrepreneurialism and on how they shape institutional entrepreneurship within western military institutions.

Anders’ PhD is part of the Semper Ardens: Advance Project “The Entrepreneurial Age: Rethinking Entrepreneurship in Society” funded by the Carlsberg Foundation led by principal investigator Prof. Christina Lubinski.

Anders holds an BA. and MA. In Philosophy & Sciences Studies and History from Roskilde University. Before joining CBS, he has worked at the Centre for Military Studies at Copenhagen University and at The Royal Danish Defence College.
