Digital Entrepreneurship – What is Really Different?

Bachelor Thesis | Supervision: Prof. Dr. Katharina Hölzle

Digital entrepreneurship has become a most prominent topic in theory and practice. It is not quite clear, however, what and whether there are really differences to entrepreneurship as such. The goal of this work is a comprehensive literature analysis (e.g., using bibliometric methods) and/or discussions with experienced founders, business angels, and VCs to find out where they see differences and similarities.

It remains unclear, however, how and with what impact sustainable entrepreneurial ecosystems are actually driving change, fostering different ways of thinking, or fostering entrepreneurial momentum. In this master thesis, an empirical-qualitative design (e.g., expert interviews) or empirical-quantitative design (e.g., panel data) can be employed.
