Kort om föreläsningen: Welcome to a new Estrad season, and the 200th open lecture since the start in 1997! Estrad is all about inspiration, sharing knowledge, and meeting up with interesting people. We hope that you will join us on September 27 for an eye-opening discussion on artificial intelligence (AI).

Self driving cars, intelligent robots and computers with superhuman performance in games like Go or Poker was previously science fiction. Today it is reality. AI creations like Siri and Alexa answer our questions, guide us, and tell us jokes.

During this lecture, we will take a look at state-of-the-art in Internet of Things (IoT), AI and autonomous systems (and mergers between them). What are the possibilities – and challenges – for existing companies? In which areas will we see a new wave of startups, building on AI? And what are the consequences for society?

Nasim Farahini and Fredrik Heintz will explore these questions at the limit of what science and engineering can do today. Their findings will also be discussed by three panelists: Margareta Groth, Vinnova, Joel Hellermark, Sana Labs, and Christina Henryson, Tillväxtverket. Prepare for an inspiring afternoon where you might end up leaving with more questions than answers...

New Technologies, Vegans, Disasters, and All That Stuff: How to Make Use of External Enablers to Create New Business

New Technologies, Vegans, Disasters, and All That Stuff: How to Make Use of External Enablers to Create New Business

Tid: Tisdag 9 oktober 2018, 13.30-15.00
Plats: SUP46, Regeringsgatan 65, Stockholm
Talare: Professor Per Davidsson, QUT Business School, Australien

Kort om föreläsningen: Entrepreneurs cannot literally create “something from nothing”. For success, they also need some “raw material” to work with. While everybody agrees that new technologies, regulatory changes, and demographic and socio-cultural shifts provide such “raw material”, we do not yet have a unified understanding of precisely how, why and for whom such environmental changes open up possibilities for profitable new business activities.

In this talk, Professor Per Davidsson presents a new framework that can help entrepreneurs identify the precise business benefits different types of external change can offer:

- What do the scope of the change and the manner in which it happens (e.g., sudden/unpredictable vs. gradual/predictable) tell us about the potential of new businesses based on it, or about what type of actor can most likely realize that potential (e.g., start-ups vs. incumbent firms)?

- What are the specific benefits (e.g., saving costs, saving time, increasing demand) that the change can offer?

- And when in the business creation process do these benefits kick in?

These are the type of questions that the presented framework attempts to guide to fruitful answers.

Kort om föreläsaren/föreläsarna: Per Davidsson is one of the pioneers of the field of entrepreneurship research. He has had internationally leading roles in the development of this field as one of the most cited authors, journal editor, mentor of dozens of PhD students and Post Doctoral researchers, organizer of many research conferences and workshops, and elected chair of the 3,500-member strong Entrepreneurship Division of The Academy of Management. He has been actively involved in entrepreneurship policy in Australia, Sweden, and the USA. Based in Australia since 2004, he is the Founding Director of the Australian Centre for Entrepreneurship Research at QUT in Brisbane while also retaining his affiliation with the Jönköping International Business School (JIBS) in Sweden, his native country. His current research on External Enablers is an extension of a 2015 journal article of his, which is currently the most cited since its publication in the leading scholarly journal in the field of entrepreneurship.
