The Impact of Overlapping Role Identities in Start-up Firm Governance on Risk and Uncertainty Perceptions: A qualitative Study.

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper (not published)peer-review

Abstract

It is not unique that one person can simultaneously hold a combination of the position of a CEO, a board member, an investor, and an advisor in start-up ventures. However, few studies have studied the interaction and the relationships and potential conflicts that may arise from overlapping role identities. Taking a cognitive perspective, we analyze variations in the perception of risk and uncertainty of two persons holding a combination of these governance positions in 8 start-up firms. This study answers the recent call for researchers to conduct qualitative studies on actual board discussions and actions.
