Eesley research overview MS&E

  1. Tech-based Entrepreneurship and the Institutional Environment Research Overview: Chuck Eesley cee@stanford.edu
  2. stvp.stanford.edu Influence of the External Environment on Tech-Based Entrepreneurship • Individual characteristics, network ties, and strategy • Effective institutional change influences who starts firms, not just how many firms are started. • Study a single country (China, Chile, Japan, and the U.S.) before and after a major institutional change • natural experiments • Empirical/large dataset, international fieldwork/interviews
  3. stvp.stanford.edu Three Streams 1. Formal Institutions 2. Industry Environment 3. Informal Institutions
  4. stvp.stanford.edu Stream 1: Formal Institutions • Prior literature focuses on barriers to entry, self-employment • Entrepreneurial activities of high human capital individuals – focus on high- growth, technology-based firms. •Eesley, C. 2016.

  8. Stream 2: Industry Environment
  9. stvp.stanford.edu Industry Environment • Eesley, Charles E.; Hsu, D.; Roberts, E.B. 2013.

  12. stvp.stanford.edu Stream 2: On-going work on digital platforms • 30 months of firm-level data on around 10,000 merchant ventures – Sales data – # of distinct items sold – pricing – product categories – customer review scores – gender of owner – age of owner – registration date – location (province & city) • 200+ hours of interviews • Alibaba – 1,000 Faces, platform change (with Wesley Koo) • Customizing search results to each individual consumer • Forced merchants to focus on particular consumer segments
  13. Stream 3: Informal Institutions

  16. stvp.stanford.edu Influence of the External Environment on Tech-Based Entrepreneurship • Policy leaders wish to foster high growth, technology-based start- ups • Institutional changes can significantly influence the types of firms that are created, who creates them, and how they perform. • Theoretical contributions – institutional barriers to growth and failure, founding team alignment, informal inst. • Methods contributions – look beyond developed North American and European economies. – differences-in-differences, randomized field experiments, regression discontinuity, instrumental variables

Methods contributions • Alumni Surveys • Platform/Field Randomized Experiments • Web scraping, platform data – Alibaba/Taobao (Wesley), Chinese regional government websites (Daniel), LinkedIn (Xinyi), • Lab experiment – Tsinghua Executive MBAs (Xinyi) • QCA analysis, In-person interview surveys (Daniel, Jamber) • (A) showing how to measure talent, (B) using alumni surveys to reduce success bias, (C) collecting data internationally, (D) using randomized field experiments, and (E) analyzing multi- industry databases with state-of-the-art statistics (Regression discontinuity, instrumental variables, differences-in- differences)
  23. Why study high-tech entrepreneurship? • Driver of economic growth and technical progress • Driver of economic and social mobility • Important intersection of technical and social science issues • Young field, interesting methodological, statistical issues
