Abstract Aggregated country-level statistics and regulatory aspects of institutions alone fail to explain the increasing emergence of promising ventures in developing contexts. We argue institutions have multiple dimensions and draw attention to the often overlooked heterogeneities within these institutional dimensions in developing nations. Using data from developed, emerging, and base of pyramid economies we show evidence of unequal endowments across regulatory, cognitive, and normative instit...
Faith is very important to many researchers, but it is rarely discussed as a part of academic research as science and faith are often seen as separate from one another. This paper takes a different...

Excess fluoride concentrations in drinking water supplies negatively impact the health of communities living in fluoride affected regions of the world by causing dental and skeletal fluorosis and other severe socio-economic problems. Given that fluoride mitigation solutions have proven elusive, we app...

An individual’s time perspective, whether past, present, or future, has important effects on his or her cognitions and behaviors. Entrepreneurs are no exception to this, although this crucial perception has rarely been addressed. We argue that it is important to bring time perspective into entrepreneurship because of its significant impact on the processing of information surrounding potential opportunities. In particular, this study examines the effects of present-hedonistic and future-positive...

Equity financing in entrepreneurship primarily includes venture capital, corporate venture capital, angel investment, crowdfunding, and accelerators. We take stock of venture financing research to date with two main objectives: (a) to integrate, organize, and assess the large and disparate literature on venture financing; and (b) to identify key considerations relevant for the domain of venture financing moving forward. The net effect is that organizing and assessing existing research in venture...

This paper delineates the conceptual domain of dual-identity social entrepreneurship (DISE) and grounds its components theoretically. DISE entails the creation of ventures whose business model is designed by individual founders to create demonstrable and continued public value from strategic actions while simultaneously creating continued economic value. Because the growing interest in social entrepreneurship spans academic areas, boundaries are established among DISE and four related areas: i.e...

Technology-based ventures face considerable challenges when attempting to raise early-stage capital during the early-stages of development. To create an operational business they need access to financial capital, but external investors prefer to see an operational business before investing capital. This study extends arguments grounded in dynamic managerial capabilities theory to examine the extent to which various trade-offs among the quality of a venture's management team, radicalness of the f...
