UML Global Entrepreneurship Webinar: Entrepreneurial Orientation and New Venture Success
November 11, 2020 @ 7:30 pm UTC+5.5
Entrepreneurial Orientation and New Venture Success
There is an increasing shift from the myth of the “lonely hero entrepreneur” to the “collective nature of entrepreneurship,”, understanding and leveraging the team’s entrepreneurial orientation assumes critical importance to enhance venture success. EO is vital because it is well-suited to dealing with pressures arising from both a rapidly changing external environment and a natural internal tendency towards inflexibility and inertia as organizations increase in size. The webinar will provide a brief overview of current research trends in the field of entrepreneurial orientation and insights on key dimensions to focus on while supporting new venture pursuits of student startup teams as well as nascent ventures housed in incubators.
