Research interests

My academic work revolves on data-based innovation and new forms of organizing, entrepreneurship and generativity. I use computational methods, but I also have plenty of experience in case study research. More about my research interests can be found in my publication list and CV.


I have helped to build successful Demos Helsinki think tank and smartphone app Moves that was acquired by Facebook – and seen the less glorious side of entrepreneurship. Also, I recently completed a massive review of scholarly literature on Factors Shaping Entrepreneurial Ecosystems and the Rise of Entrepreneurship: A View from Top Management Journals.

Doctoral training

I am looking for a highly motivated PhD student to work with me at WBS. Read more from this blog post.
