High-impact entrepreneurship: routine formation, process and outcomes

Project opportunity

This Earmarked Scholarship project is aligned with a recently awarded Category 1 research grant. It offers you the opportunity to work with leading researchers and contribute to large projects of national significance.

Innovation-led growth will take an increasingly central role in Australia’s economic development. To foster such growth requires an in-depth understanding of high-impact entrepreneurship. To achieve this understanding the research adopts a practice-based approach to gain in-depth knowledge of what entrepreneurs actually do in the process of creating high impact new ventures. As an outcome, how routines are formed and developed to establish and sustain the creation of high-impact new ventures are uncovered; making significant contributions to core areas of management and entrepreneurship research, while providing sound guidance to entrepreneurs, industry and policy makers about the process of creating high impact new ventures.

The successful applicant will enrol through the School of Business.
