Functieomschrijving

The Entrepreneurship & Innovation section of the Amsterdam Business School (ABS) is looking for a PhD candidate for a research project about the impact of university-based incubation activities on the creation, growth, and performance of new startups and spinoffs as well their founders.

The main aim of this project is to study early investment in biotech entrepreneurial ventures, focusing on the signals of quality the entrepreneur and the venture can send and especially on the effects of how the entrepreneur or venture are categorized, in terms of industry, technology, goal of the product etc. - or categorize themselves.

The lead of the overall project is with the Academic Medical Centre of the University of Amsterdam, most of these researchers are connected to (bio)medical departments who study innovative techniques and applications related to artificial organs; this subproject is the only one in management science.

The supervisors of this project will be Prof. Nachoem Wijnberg and Dr Balazs Szatmari.
