1. Sell, Briana Christine. Human capital and the entrepreneurial careers of scientists and engineers.

Degree: PhD, Business, 2015, Georgia Tech

I examine the role of human capital in shaping entrepreneurial activity by studying the entrepreneurial careers of scientists and engineers from entry to exit. I analyze how the development of human capital through education and employment affects entrepreneurial entry, performance, and exit. Empirically I utilize the restricted-use National Science Foundation (NSF) Scientists and Engineers Statistical Data System (SESTAT) which is a large data set focused on scientists and engineers to identify possible drivers of transitions to entrepreneurship amongst knowledge workers. Additionally, I am able to analyze the extent to which transitioning to entrepreneurship allows scientists and engineers to increase their financial and non-financial work outcomes and finally, what mechanisms are associated with their exit from entrepreneurship and subsequent return to wage work. Advisors/Committee Members: Sauermann, Henry (advisor), Thompson, Peter (committee member), Higgins, Matthew (committee member), Swider, Brian (committee member), Hamilton, Barton (committee member).

2. Jaiswal, Mayank. Essays on diversity and new venture performance.

Degree: PhD, Business, 2017, Georgia Tech

I analyze how various aspects of diversity impact new venture performance. In the first study, I find that credit riskiness and assets of a venture mediate the gap in performance, revenues and profits between Black and White owned ventures. In my second study, I examine diversity in same industry work experience and education. I find that same industry work experience diversity has no impact on venture survival but level of educational diversity has a non-monotonic effect on survival. Finally, in the third study, I find that use of adequate controls leads to no gap in performance between male versus female-owned ventures. However, certain owner characteristics such as same industry work experience and number of hours worked and venture level characteristics such as technology level and incorporation status lead to significant gaps in survival, revenues and profits between male and female-owned ventures. I utilize the confidential Kauffman Firm Survey, an extensive dataset of new ventures started in 2004 in the US and tracked till 2011, to conduct the analyses. I discuss implications of my findings for research, investors and entrepreneurs.
