  2. 2. Norris Krueger, PhD • Who am I? • What drives me? • What I’m working on? • How can I help Phoenix? • How can I help YOU?
  3. 3. who am I? • Growing entrepreneurial individuals, communities and organizations. • Deeply engaged scholarship, passionately innovative education and training, helping grow communities. • Cutting-edge, top-cited scholar in entrepreneurship (h- index = 19) Research ‘top ten’ • Award-winning educator – 3 national/global best practice awards Teaching philosophy • Deeply immersed in entrepreneurial community – locally, nationally, globally

  6. 6. what am I working on? 1. Developing Entrepreneurial, Innovative Individuals: What works? • Conceptual development to model entrepreneurial mindset at deep level -> Research Opportunities for UoP • Applied protocols to promote healthy change in entrepreneurial mindset -> Teaching Opportunities for UoP • Empirical protocols to assess mindset and impact of training/experiences -> Policy Opportunities for UoP
  7. 7. research foci: engaged scholarship • PP = Public policy/community outreach • ED = Educator • Pr = Practitioner • SI = Scholarly inquiry
  8. 8. potential micro papers for SAS Assessing the Impact of Advanced Entrepreneurship Training (empirical and conceptual, global) <PP, ED, SI> Towards a Personal Entrepreneurial Orientation (empirical) <SI, ED> Re-conceptualizing Entrepreneurial Passion (conceptual) <SI>

  10. 10. example: high-impact research • Assessing impact of entrepreneurial learning: – What is changing at deep level? – What interventions matter? – In situ field experiments (baked into course itself)
  11. 11. Novice Expert Entrepreneurial Mindset Critical Developmental Experiences Change in WHAT we know (content) Change in HOW we know it (knowledge structures) Change in Deep Beliefs
  12. 12. what I’m working on (macro) 2. Developing Entrepreneurial, Innovative Communities: What works? • Created dominant model of entrepreneurial ecosystem development (conceptual -> test) • Created leading metrics for assessing ecosystem health (conceptual -> test) -> Outreach & Research Opportunities for UoP • Created practical protocols for ecosystem development • [-> Outreach Opportunities for UoP -- want to help???] • Speaker/consultant globally (OECD, EU, Japan, WEF, Kauffman) • Current projects with colleagues in Germany, New Zealand, Finland, Chile, Switzerland, et al.
  13. 13. Potential macro papers for SAS • Crowdsourcing Dimensions of Entrepreneurial Ecosystems (conceptual & empirical) <PP, Pr> • Exploring Super-gazelle Firms: Empirical Determinants of Hypergrowth <PP, SI, Pr> • Immigrant Entrepreneurship: Implications for Startup Visa (empirical, w/UoP grad) <PP>

  15. 15. example: high-impact research • Participatory action research: (potential paper 2) <PP, Pr> – How do active experts assess health of innovation ecosystems? – Validate metrics – Validate intervention(s) • Conceptual framework developed (paper 1?) <PP, SI> • Crowdsourced initial dimensions/metrics (completed) • Global organizations as co-investigators (e.g., JWEF, SW) • Opportunity for field experiments (potential paper 3)
  16. 16. so… how can I help? • Scholarly production • Educator value (including teaching cases) • Practitioner value • Policy maker value • Connections • Conferences (policy, practice too!) • Cases • Collaborations • Commitment!
  17. 17. opportunities for UoP and… you!
