More information


I am an Assistant Professor of Entrepreneurship in the Department of Strategic Management & Entrepreneurship at the Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University. I hold a PhD from the Jönköping International Business School (Sweden). During my PhD studies I have spent some time at the Carlson School of Management (University of Minnesota) as a visiting PhD student.

My research focuses on three main themes: (a) the effect of pre-entry experience and post-entry strategies on new venture outcomes, (b) entrepreneurial dynamics in family firms, and (c) entrepreneurial motivation and behavior in individuals. At RSM, I teach courses and modules in Entrepreneurship and Family Business.
