Personal profile


My doctoral thesis is about what entrepreneurs actually do when it comes to financing their firms – small, young, risky, and barely attractive to the traditional capital market. It is also about what resource needs actually are, and how an entrepreneur can separate the needs from wants and apply reason to the own choices in relation to resources that can be obtained for free versus others that might be worth paying market price for. It is also about potential costs and benefits of frugal resource management. In my research, I aimed to offer a nuanced perspective on understanding, interlinking, and conceptually grounding resource needs, entrepreneurial behaviors to address such needs, and the possible outcomes thereof.
