Talk to highlight influences on social goals of entrepreneurs

Researchers have found that culture and individual-level resources are increasingly important in helping entrepreneurs determine what social goals their business will have.

How individual-level resources — measured as financial, human and social capital — and culture influence the resources entrepreneurs allocate to social value creation is the focus of this week’s Goodman School of Business Luncheon Speaker Series event.

On Friday, Sept. 10, Dirk De Clercq, a leading organizational and entrepreneurial studies scholar and Professor of Management at the Goodman School of Business, will present co-authored research that delves deeper into this topic during his talk titled “Entrepreneur resources, cultural context, and social value creation.”

De Clercq teaches Entrepreneurship and Research Methods. His expansive research includes publishing more than 100 peer-reviewed journal articles, and his contributions in the entrepreneurship field are extensive. In recognition of his outstanding work, De Clercq is a recipient of the Brock University Chancellor’s Chair for Research Excellence, the Faculty of Graduate Studies Graduate Mentorship Award, the Goodman School of Business Distinguished Researcher Award and the Departmental Researcher of the Year Award.

The Goodman speaker series provides Goodman faculty, staff and students with an informal opportunity to listen and discuss recent advances in research, teaching and practices with business colleagues virtually.

De Clercq’s talk will take place online Friday, Sept. 10 from 12:30 to 2 p.m. All are welcomed to attend and can RSVP to receive a link to the session by emailing Jasmine Stasiuk Riddell at
