Digital Economy and Entrepreneurship Research Agenda

Recent research in entrepreneurial ecosystems views entrepreneurs as the main actors within the systems of institutions and infrastructures.   Focusing on the digital economy, this Center is interested in investigating how digitalization, i.e., leveraging the use of Internet technologies, has enabled entrepreneurs to operate beyond endowment of factors within a region.  We are interested in understanding how entrepreneurs in regions faced with depopulation, e.g., inner cities, or unfavourable endowment of factors can leverage the use of digital technologies and their digital infrastructures to start, grow, and sustain their businesses.  First, access to Internet is a requirement to become a participant in the digital economy.  Second, digital skills are essential to leverage digital technologies to engage in entrepreneurship in digital business.  Third, governance of digital ecosystem impacts entrepreneurs’ ability to compete in the digital economy.  Do regions faced with depopulation or unfavourable endowment of factors also fall behind in these three dimensions?
