Professor Rahul Kumar will deliver a lecture on Entrepreneurial Cognition in Enterprise Creation: New Opportunities in Entrepreneurship Research, at Amrut Mody School of Management. The current understanding of entrepreneurial cognition has evolved since its early conceptualization in the late 1990s. Incubators and accelerators provide an extraordinary opportunity to empirically examine the role cultural-cognitive and social-cognitive processes play out in early stage entrepreneurship. Rahul Kumar will use this seminar as an opportunity to frame new research opportunities that can potentially use university incubators/accelerators to draw new insights for our theoretical understanding of entrepreneurial cognition. The seminar will conclude by a specific research question that Mr. Kumar is currently exploring as part of his extended research program.
