Karin Berglund, professor of Business, Stockholm Business School
Karin Berglund is a professor of Business, specializing in entrepreneurship, at Stockholm Business School, Stockholm University, Sweden and a visiting professor of entrepreneurship at Linnaeus University. She takes a particular interest in the expansion of conventional entrepreneurship into new contexts and in the emergence of alternative forms of entrepreneurship and innovation. Her overarching research interest lies in studying entrepreneurship and innovation from a sociological perspective, as part of an enterprise culture, and in contributing to critical management, organization, gender and entrepreneurship studies. In her research she has acknowledged the paradox of entrepreneurship and innovation to keep us trapped in old patterns, or to make us increasingly ‘remote-controlled’, instead of facilitating for humans in contemporary society to break patterns and develop innovative solutions. In her view, efforts are needed to help us understand how to give innovation and entrepreneurship new meanings and facilitate all that which has been associated with entrepreneurship and innovation.
Karin Berglund has recently published an edited book on how entrepreneurship education can be revitalized in higher education and also edited a book on societal entrepreneurship. Her research has been published in Action Research, Entrepreneurship and Regional Development, Ephemera, International Journal of Entrepreneurial Venturing, International Entrepreneurship and Management Journal, Journal of Enterprising Communities, Journal of Social Entrepreneurship, M@n@gement, Organization, Scandinavian Journal of Management and Tamara Journal of Critical Organization.
