Passionate marketing lecturer and distinguished researcher
My research allows me to get into the field and directly engage with founders and managers working in the startup space. By better understanding how firms interact in networks, we are able to introduce more effective support for startups and help stimulate the broader innovation ecosystem.Dr Daniel Schepis
