Understanding entrepreneurial behaviour – 11th DARE seminar at NIKOS, University of Twente

Mind And Speech Bubble Thoughts

The 11th DARE Seminar took place at the University of Twente, co-hosted by the Netherlands Institute for Knowledge-Intensive Entrepreneurship (NIKOS). Entrepreneurship researchers from all over the Netherlands and even Spain were able to network, create memories, and discuss many important new research insights that are vital to a better understanding of entrepreneurial behavior. Some of these include the role of mindfulness for taking entrepreneurial action, next to the role of entrepreneurs’ motives and coping strategies as resources that strengthen or weaken the stress effect of working conditions in the start-up and exit context. Furthermore, the role of simplified prototype and imagination for opportunity recognition was explored – also in the context of entrepreneurship education – next to discussing the role of creative leadership and dark triad traits in the corporate entrepreneurship context. Finally, participants gained interesting insights into the differential effects of optimism and overconfidence on entrepreneurial intention and orientation, as well as the linkages between narcissism and entrepreneurship, and BIS/BAS psychophysiology and entrepreneurship. In sum, by bringing together renown researchers with connectable foci on entrepreneurial behavior, the 11th DARE Seminar stimulated further engagement in nuanced research at the nexus of the enterprising individual and the entrepreneurial behavior.

NIKOS is organising quite some interesting Venture Classes and lectures. For example, in December a ‘Meet-the-editor-session‘ will take place with Marc Gruber (EPFL), who will share his experience as Deputy Editor at the Academy of Management Journal (AMJ).
