I study entrepreneurship and innovation. I am particularly interested in the interplay between individuals and organizations: how individuals choose which organizations to join, and the impact of those choices; how founders can build high performing organizations; how individuals organize to innovate; and a range of similar topics. My work has focused on a few different settings to date, with more underway:
- I have spent a lot of time studying video games, both as an industry setting for research, and also as an educational and performance-enhancing tool. Here is a TEDx talk I gave on the subject.
- Much of my work looks at entrepreneurial settings, especially on what factors determine success in entrepreneurial environments, and what role individuals play in making companies successful. I have also been looking at new fund raising techniques for entrepreneurs, such as crowdfunding.
- I have written on the topic of hackers, including how hackers become entrepreneurs. There is a YouTube clip of me giving a 10 minute talk on hackers, entrepreneurship and the iPhone.
- I also studied the history of Moore’s Law.
