Office Hours: I'm a Leadership/Entrepreneurship professor at Harvard Business School. I research implicit bias in fundraising.Featured
Hi Everyone! I’m an Associate Professor of Leadership and Entrepreneurship at Harvard Business School and I’m the author of Edge: Turning Adversity into Advantage, a book on how to make your own privilege and overcome the barriers others create, while staying true to yourself. My research looks at early-stage entrepreneurship and the role of interpersonal relationships and implicit factors in investment decisions of angel investors and VCs. My work studies the subtle signals and cues that often impact the behavioral perceptions of investors, which can lead to implicit bias in the investing process.My work has been published in several journals including the Academy of Management Journal, Administrative Science Quarterly, and the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. I have also been featured in the Financial Times, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Forbes, and Nature. I have won a number of awards for my research, and I was named one of the 40 Best Business School Professors Under the Age of 40 by Poets & Quants. Before coming to Harvard, I was an assistant professor of Management at the Wharton School at University of Pennsylvania.Ask me anything about the interpersonal mistakes founders make while pitching to investors, the ways implicit bias impacts fundraising, or anything else!
