Datum: 19 april 2018

Föreläsare: Professor Sarah Jack, Handelshögskolan i Stockholm

Om föreläsningen: Many entrepreneurs aim for their business to be global from the start. Thus, understanding how they will affect - and be affected by - different local contexts, becomes more important. Research has an important role to play here, according to professor Sarah Jack. However, the impact which entrepreneurship research can have on the communities served, is less well understood.

This is the topic for Sarah Jack's Estrad lecture. Drawing on her extensive research on different aspects of entrepreneurship, from a variety of different contexts around the world, she will provide us with fresh perspectives.

Sarah Jack is the first holder of the Jacob and Marcus Wallenberg Chair in Innovative and Sustainable Business Development at Stockholm School of Economics. Her primary areas of research are social capital, social context and networks. She believes that research on entrepreneurship and entrepreneurs should be carried out within the context in which it takes place.

During the lecture, Sarah Jack will cover topics such as:
- Why are social relationships and networks critical assets for entrepreneurs?
- How can universities support entrepreneurs in a better way?
- How can we understand entrepreneurship in different contexts?

Please note that the lecture is in English.
