Veroniek Collewaert

Veroniek Collewaert is Associate Professor in Ondernemerschap aan Vlerick Business School. Voor haar onderzoek heeft ze een substantieel netwerk opgebouwd van ondernemers en business angels, zowel in België als in Silicon Valley (VS), waar ze haar onderzoek over conflicten tussen investeerders en ondernemers heeft uitgevoerd. Door de 'donkere' kant van de relatie tussen investeerders en ondernemers te bestuderen, wil ze beide partijen minder naïef maken in hun omgang met elkaar en wil ze hen leren hoe het meeste maximum uit hun relatie te halen. Meer recent heeft ze ook een interesse ontwikkeld in sociaal ondernemerschap en heeft ze mee cases ontwikkeld voor onderwijsdoeleinden over sociale ondernemingen zoals Mobile Schools (België) en ProjektFabrik (Duitsland).

Profiel

Veroniek Collewaert behaalde haar doctoraat in Toegepaste Economische Wetenschappen aan Universiteit Gent in 2009. Ze was een visiting scholar aan Stanford Graduate School of Business (VS) in 2007-2008. Nadat ze drie jaar actief was aan Universiteit Maastricht (Nederland), werkt ze nu als Associate Professor in Ondernemerschap bij het ondernemerschapsdepartement van Vlerick Business School.

Ze heeft artikelen gepubliceerd in wetenschappelijke tijdschriften zoals 'Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice' en 'Small Business Economics'. Haar huidige onderzoeksinteresses omvatten de dynamieken in de relatie tussen ondernemers en investeerders (bvb. conflict, vertrouwen, onethisch gedrag), biases van ondernemers (bvb. overoptimisme) en strategische overwegingen in de relatie tussen ondernemers en investeerders (bvb. 'slack resources').

Met als basis haar onderwijservaring met sociaal ondernemerschap heeft ze nu ook een aantal onderzoeksprojecten over sociale ondernemers opgestart.
