HTSF SESSION WITH SJOERD ROMME AND INGRID WAKKEE
Get to know more about building innovation ecosystems, sustainable business models and value creation from great keynote speakers during the High Tech Small Firms (HTSF) conference. We invite you for the HTSF morning session with professors Sjoerd Romme (Eindhoven University of Technology) and Ingrid Wakkee (Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences) on May 28, 2019 for free.
Sjoerd Romme – Designing Entrepreneurial Ecosystems
In a world of increasing specialization and growing complexity, entrepreneurs often have to work together in a so-called ‘innovation ecosystem’ to build an ecosystem-wide value proposition. A growing body of literature on innovation ecosystems and business modelling addresses these challenges from a scientific-analytic perspective. In the absence of a comprehensive approach that would empower entrepreneurs and managers to map and design an innovation ecosystem, we set out to design such an approach. The result is the so-called Ecosystem Pie Model (EPM), a modelling framework in the form of a graphical tool and an associated toolkit. The EPM was tested in more than 200 cases. Professor Sjoerd Romme (Eindhoven University of Technology) joins the HTSF conference where he will reflect on the development trajectory of EPM and where he will talk about designing entrepreneurial ecosystems.
Ingrid Wakkee – Failure and Recovery of Entrepreneurs
When it comes to entrepreneurship both scholars and policy makers focus on predominantly on topics like startup, growth and success. Reality, however, is that entrepreneurs are more commonly confronted with adversity, hardship and failure. As a result of the limited attention for these aspects of entrepreneurship, we fail to learn the lessons of how to deal with, reduce the costs of and recover from failure. Over the past years we have stepped into this gap and set up several studies focusing both on the entrepreneurs experiencing failure themselves and on the professionals working with or for entrepreneurs in the entrepreneurial ecosystem such as bankers, accountants and policy makers. Professor Ingrid Wakkee (Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences) will share her insights generated so far and elaborate on our further research agenda.
