Entrepreneurship students take more risks than others, but not at all costs

Entrepreneurs are thought to be risk takers. But do they take risks at all costs? In particular, how are entrepreneurs different compared to non-entrepreneurs when real monetary opportunities are at stakes?

With the support from the CBS Entrepreneurship Platform, a series of laboratory experiment were carried out at Copenhagen Business School with the aim of exploring these questions. During the experiments, students were faced with simple gambles. Every decision involved a real monetary gain. Gambles were presented in different combinations where the participants had to choose between certainty, risk and uncertainty.

Entrepreneurship Policy Conference
Friday, September 18, 2015

Once again CBS Entrepreneurship Platform hosts its annual Entrepreneurship Policy Conference this year with the focus on The Future of Knowledge Intensive Entrepreneurship, Incubation and IPR - special focus on IT / Healthcare

In the global competitive landscape, the Danish economy needs to compete on the basis of business ideas and business models that spring from knowledge-intensive work. Research and education thus need to become key sources of entrepreneurship and innovation, as clearly stated in the Danish Government’s innovation strategy from December 2012. CBS’ Entrepreneurship Platform focuses this year's annual conference on the crossing of two such strategic knowledge areas: IT and Healthcare.

“The intersection of  IT and Healthcare is highly interesting, emerging out of technological developments as well as new ways of organising healthcare services. The conference will focus on this intersection and the entrepreneurial potential it represents for start-ups in Denmark. Check out the possibilities in this description of the conference and join us on September 18th at CBS.” (Jørgen Bardenfleth, Chairman Copenhagen Healthtech Cluster and Accelerace)
