The future of digital entrepreneurship research: Existing and emerging opportunities
With Jan Recker
Digital entrepreneurship—the intersection of digital technologies and entrepreneurship— is gaining increasing importance in the global economy and scholarly community. This PDW set out to establish a community platform for and shared understanding amongst information systems researchers who are interested in shaping the future of digital entrepreneurship research within and beyond the discipline’s boundaries. The simple framework presented in this short paper represents the first step of this endeavor and served as the foundation to structure thinking and discussions at the PDW. The framework identifies three fundamental dimensions of the digital entrepreneurship phenomenon—digital technologies as enablers, outcomes, or contexts of entrepreneurship processes—that form distinct sub-themes of digital entrepreneurship research and illustrates potential research topics that flow from each of them and their intersections.
