Research Interest
The aim of doctoral research is to clarify how accelerators can support high, rapid and sustainable growth of companies. Startup accelerators are relatively new phenomenon, which has its roots in the venture capital industry. On the other hand, there have been some kinds of new venture acceleration before startup accelerators. Accelerators can be defined as venture-to- capital (V2C) actors that bridge the competence and equity gaps of startups. Moreover, growth companies are needed to sustain economic welfare but green and clean technologies are needed for sustainable development of natural resources and natural capital. The rapid growth of green companies (e.g. cleantech, green tech) might have great positive economic and environmental consequences.
