Dissertation: Entrepreneurial orientation does not guarantee the success of a firm

Posted on 12/12/17.


In his doctoral dissertation, Jesse Heimonen examines what is the role of entrepreneurial orientation in improving the growth, profitability, and innovation performance of a firm. Entrepreneurial orientation refers to a firm’s willingness to proactively seek new market opportunities, experiment with innovative ideas and take risks when the outcomes are uncertain. Despite the majority of the prior literature considers entrepreneurial orientation as universally advantageous, the core message of the dissertation highlights that it is not always so.
