Research topics

My Doctorate in Entrepreneurship in 2007 deals with
the entrepreneurial process trigger phase. I emphasized
my research on the trigger process with two main dimensions which lead to the trigger: the intention and the role of the environment and of the displacement. This research focused on a population of French engineers.

Now, my research interests are in various areas of entrepreneurship. I works on two main dimensions of the entrepreneurial process. The first one is the
notion of opportunity in the process and specifically
the construction of the opportunity as regards the entrepreneurial orientation of the firm. The
second one is the role of the intuition and the
emotion in the process. I also work on the profile
and the entrepreneur, specifically on his vision
in a SMEs context.

I am also interested in the courses in
entrepreneurship, and particularly in the
evaluation of the entrepreneurship courses.
