Entrepreneurship and Innovative Business Models

About us

Innovations at the boundaries of different fields of knowledge and technology have the potential to enable new technology and innovation systems as well as entirely new entrepreneurial eco-systems. For example, the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals adopted in Paris can only succeed through new technologies and new value chains that enable a more efficient use of resources. Against the background of this motivation, the team of the Chair of Entrepreneurship and Innovative Business Models deals with the entire transformation or start-up process from the emergence of new "Technological Innovation Systems" and the associated transformation of established firms to the identification of entrepreneurial opportunities and the underlying mental models of managers/entrepreneurs.

We aim at closely linking theoretical and practical questions in research and education. Our research projects are based on a wide array of quantitative as well as qualitative methods to analyze management questions in the diverse applications fields.

Research

Given the increasing need to implement sustainable development goals and the pressing urge to mitigate challenges such as climate change, new technologies and innovations are not only increasingly necessary but also a fascinating research subject.

Research focus

Technology Dynamics and Transformation
New technologies have the potential to disrupt and thus change the logic of various industries. On the one hand, this dynamic leads to opportunities for start-ups; on the other, it poses major challenges for established companies.
Business Model Innovations
The combination of different knowledge and technology areas holds great potential for technology-based business models and at the same time poses major challenges for the transformation process of established companies.
Entrepreneurial Opportunity Recognition
Identifying and realizing entrepreneurial opportunities in the context of interdisciplinary high-tech fields helps to link diverse fields of knowledge and technology.
