O’Mahony to examine entrepreneurial ecosystems.
Siobhan O’Mahony, Associate Professor of Strategy & Innovation and Academic Director of Research and Curriculum for Innovate@BU has been named a 2018-2019 Batten Fellow by the Batten Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at University of Virginia Darden School of Business.
According to the Darden press release, “the Batten Fellows program provides support for prominent thought leaders and high-potential scholars who seek to generate new knowledge about entrepreneurship and innovation.” As one of the school’s most prestigious honors for scholarship in entrepreneurship and innovation, the selection process for this fellowship considers only the most prominent thought leaders and high-potential scholars, making it a highly competitive process.
Professor O’Mahony’s research specializes in exploring how technical and creative projects organize for innovation. In the past, she has examined how high technology contractors, open source programmers, artists, music producers, internet startups and product development teams coordinate their efforts in projects, teams, and communities.
As a Batten Fellow, she will research entrepreneurial ecosystems and how those systems influence entrepreneurs and their efforts around venture creation.
