讲座主要内容

We study the relation between science, technology, engineering & math (STEM) academic entrepreneurial founding team composition and venture performance. While academic founding teams may find it difficult to recruit functionally diverse team members (co-founders with commercial knowledge and experience), their venture development may disproportionately benefit from such diversity. We empirically test that proposition, as well as the mechanisms behind the relationship. We investigate the extent to which superior venture performance arises from (a) functionally diverse founding teams producing higher quality technologies and/or by (b) attracting more experienced financial investors (venture capitalists). By matching academic entrepreneurial founded ventures with observationally similar ones (but not founded by academic entrepreneurs), we empirically test the main effect as well as the two proposed mechanisms. We find a positive relation of STEM academic founders who have co-founders with business backgrounds on venture outcomes. As to the mechanisms, our results are not consistent with the proposition that more diverse teams produce more commercially-relevant patented technology, but rather that such diverse founding teams are more likely to attract the interest of experienced venture capitalists (who in turn help ventures achieve favorable outcomes).
