Startup Success via Innovation and Entrepreneurship
Ever wondered what it takes for a startup to succeed? Join Stanford Professor Chuck Eesley in examining the different success factors of startups. Learn about the research that examines the success of companies like Google and Whatsapp, and what determines if they will have an exit or an IPO.
Chuck Eesley is an assistant professor in the department of management science and engineering at Stanford University. His research and teaching interests focus on strategy and technology entrepreneurship. In the broadest sense, Chuck is interested in the "ideas sector" of the economy. He wants to find out which individual attributes, strategies and institutional arrangements optimally drive the rate of innovation, high growth entrepreneurship, and ultimately economic growth. Most recently Chuck has been teaching a technology entrepreneurship course on for free to tens of thousands around the world. He received the 2010 Best Dissertation Award in the Business Policy and Strategy Division of the Academy of Management and is a recipient of the 2007 Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation’s Dissertation Fellowship award.
