I examine strategic decision-making through a behavioral lens. Specifically, I consider how socio-cognitive factors, together with organizational resources, are relevant for our understanding of strategic decisions and outcomes in entrepreneurial firms going public, as well as in non-profit institutions.
For example, I study the contingent effects of venture capitalist expertise on the strategic needs of new ventures, the ambidexterity of individual directors and its influence on strategy in new ventures that go IPO, or how moral concerns of social entrepreneurs and venture capitalists give rise to the growing area known as impact investing.
