    When things go wrong: Business angels' use of cues in judging their investment relations2008In: International Journal of Business Strategy, ISSN 1553-9563, Vol. 8, no 2, p. 48-58Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Business angels play an important role in the development and growth of many entrepreneurial ventures. They provide not only capital, but also much needed business know-how and connections to customers and other financiers that are pivotal for the success of the firm. The relationship between the business angel and the entrepreneurial team evolves over time, starting with a due diligence process and the formulation of a contract. In this paper we are interested in the post-investment phase of the relationship, and how the business angel abstracts different cues that the relationship is experiencing problems. From interviews with experienced business angels in very different settings and from very different backgrounds, six different cues have emerged as indicators that something is amiss in the relationship. These cues have the following themes; the outright rebellion, the strange report, missing deadlines, history revision, changing information flows and going underground. The majority of the business angels that we have interviewed claimed that these cues have different meanings and that some are more detrimental to the relationship than other. For instance, the outright rebellion and the urge to re-negotiate the contract are looked upon as serious breaches of the trust in the relationship. Strange reports and missing deadlines on the other hand, tend to activate the business angel and trigger some kind of action on his part, but initially with sustained trust.Earlier studies have used either the agent-principal approach or the procedural justice perspective when they have studied the relationship between investor and entrepreneur. Usually papers take one or the other as their point of departure for a study, where the first focuses on control and monitoring and the other on trust building initiatives. However, from our interviews it seems as though they complement each other in the relationship over time. When everything is going as planned the control and monitoring activities are kept at a minimum, with weekly or monthly progress reports, instead the trust building activities dominate. When a cue emerges, the trust building process comes to a halt and the control and monitoring activities gain the upper hand. Before the business angel has identified the problem and together with the entrepreneurial team worked out a solution, everything else is put on hold. Some time after the incident, control and monitoring activities will be higher than usual, before everything gets back to normal.The findings in this paper fit well within the theoretical framework put forward by Shepherd and Zacharakis (2001). In their model, they see communication as a moderating factor on the other three; commitment and consistency, being fair and just and obtaining a good fit between investor and entrepreneur. In our interviews it is clear that an open and frequent communication is a necessary condition for the development of a trusting relationship. Hence, most cues of a deteriorating relationship have to do with problems in communicating with each other.

    EXPERIENCE OF DIGITAL EXAMINATION IN SWEDEN - SOME PRELIMINARY FINDINGS FROM THREE DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES2015In: INTED2015: 9TH INTERNATIONAL TECHNOLOGY, EDUCATION AND DEVELOPMENT CONFERENCE / [ed] Chova, LG Martinez, AL Torres, IC, IATED-INT ASSOC TECHNOLOGY EDUCATION A& DEVELOPMENT , 2015, p. 4001-4007Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Assessment through new technology has gained a firm foothold within the university system in the last decade. This paper summarizes the experiences that have been made during the introduction of digital examination over the past two years. The experiences are divided between three different perspectives; the teachers, the students and the administrators. From the teachers perspective the experiences have been very positive - less time have been allocated to grading written exams, the grades are perceived as more just and the saved time can be spent on increasing the quality on other parts of the course. From a student perspective the experiences have been positive - most students are positive in that they get the results much quicker, that they can edit their answers on the exam easier and that the grades are more just. The experiences from the final perspective - that from the administrators' point of view - are far more complex. Some parts of the administrative system encouraged the projects, whereas other parts tried to stop it, using different measures. The paper concludes with some advice on implementing changes in written exams, based on the experiences from the Swedish case.

    Experience of digital examination in Sweden: Some preliminary findings from three different perspectives2015In: INTED2015 Proceedings, iated Digital Library , 2015, p. 4001-4007Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish higher educational system is under pressure. The competition from international universities is getting fiercer, and the demographical projections indicate that the number of students entering the university system is peaking right now. At the same time, the financial support from the government is decreasing. In order to stay competitive Swedish universities are trying to find strategies for using the scarce resources in the optimal way. The problem is to strike a balance between quality and efficiency.Over the past ten years a lot of improvement has been made within the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) regarding quality and innovation in education. Pedagogical courses are mandatory for the staff, and the merits of educational experience have been emphasized in hiring new staff members. Even though problem-based learning, constructive alignment and peer instruction are common in most courses today, some other aspects of education and learning remains the same. One such conservative trait has to do with written examinations. Since the founding of the university in 1827, all written examinations have been done using paper and pen at the Royal Institute of Technology. It is interesting to note that even the school of computer science is using paper and pen for their final written examinations. The problems with using paper and pen are numerous and includes; problems with reading and grading because of poor handwriting, distribution of exams between teachers in the same course, written exams getting lost, etc. In comparison with other parts of the educational system, little has happened to improve quality and efficiency when it comes to written examinations.During 2013 and 2014 a number of teachers initiated a project for increasing the efficiency in written exams. There was a general understanding that the final part of the courses consumed too much time and effort in relations to the other parts. Hence, new software for digital examinations was identified and a license was purchased. This paper summarizes the experiences that the teachers have made during this trial period. The experiences are divided between three different perspectives; the teachers, the students and the administrators. From the teachers perspective the experiences have been very positive – less time have been allocated to grading written exams, the grades are perceived as more just and the saved time can be spent on increasing the quality on other parts of the course. From a student perspective the experiences have been positive – most students are positive in that they get the results much quicker, that they can edit their answers on the exam easier and that the grades are more just. The experiences from the final perspective – that from the administrators’ point of view – are far more complex. Some parts of the administrative system encouraged the projects, whereas other parts tried to stop it, using different measures.The paper concludes with some advice on implementing changes in written exams, based on the experiences from the Swedish case.

    Homeownership and entrepreneurship A regional and industrial analysis of house prices and startups2019In: International Journal of Housing Markets and Analysis, ISSN 1753-8270, E-ISSN 1753-8289, Vol. 12, no 3, p. 456-473Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose The purpose of this paper is to analyze the relationship between housing markets and new firm formation in six different industries in all 284 municipalities in Sweden. Design/methodology/approach The authors have used data from Statistics Sweden and The Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth to develop a model to analyze the relationship between house prices and industry-specific new firm formation, with the interaction effect of financial infrastructure. Findings In the data, stable high house prices have no effect on entrepreneurship. However, a market with rising house prices has a positive effect on new firm formation, in retail, construction, business-to-business services and miscellaneous sectors, but produced no effect in either mining, agriculture and fishing or in manufacturing. The interaction between rising house prices and financial infrastructure does not change the positive effect on retail, business-to-business services and miscellaneous sectors, but within the construction industry, the positive effect on new firm formation disappears. In manufacturing, the authors observe the opposite - a positive effect, instead of no effect previously. Originality/value The contribution of this study is to provide evidence of how house prices are associated with entrepreneurship in different industries, as well as analyzing how the interaction between house prices and financial infrastructure is associated with entrepreneurship. By separating observations in time, endogeneity is controlled and a causal relationship where higher house prices is postulated, which leads to an increase in entrepreneurial activity in different industries. By using a spatial Durbin model, the authors control for spatial dependency.

    Does the increase in house prices influence the creation of business startups?: The case of Sweden2017In: Region, ISSN 2409-5370, Vol. 4, no 1, p. 1-16Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Entrepreneurs are at the core of economic development in that they start new businesses or make existing firms grow. To fulfill this important role, entrepreneurs need access to financing. Owing to information asymmetry and the relatively high risk associated with business startups, many financiers shy away from engaging in relationships with firms during the early stages of their development. Based on the existing body of knowledge on the financing of entrepreneurship, we know that insider finance is of paramount importance in the early stages of firms’ development. We expand this knowledge base by analyzing the influence of house prices on business startups across municipalities in Sweden. In our analysis, we include data from all municipalities in Sweden. Our data on house prices and control variables are collected in period one, and our data on the frequency of startups are collected in period two. We find that rising house prices in a municipality lead to a higher frequency of startups. In our spatial Durbin model, we find that a 1% increase in house prices leads to around 0.15% increase in startups. Our findings are in line with the limited international research that has been previously conducted, and therefore, our study might make a small but vital addition to this growing body of knowledge within the area of entrepreneurship and regional development.

    Business Angel–Venture Negotiation in the Post-Investment Relationship: The Use of the Good Cop, Bad Cop Strategy2014In: Venture Capital: an International Journal of Entrepreneurial Finance, ISSN 1369-1066, E-ISSN 1464-5343, Vol. 16, no 4, p. 309-325Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper reports on the utilization of the ‘good cop, bad cop’ negotiation strategy in ongoing investor-venture relationships. Four cases of business angel – venture involvement are studied over several years’ time. Earlier research on the good cop, bad cop strategy has described its efficiency in obtaining maximum distribution in short-term distributive bargaining. This has been explained as a result of the emotional contrast effect unlocked by the sequence of interaction with the bad cop followed by interaction with the good cop. In an ongoing investment relationship, other rules apply. The present findings suggest that only a business angel who is already trusted can become a good cop – by virtue of introducing a bad cop. This is explained as a way of conducting negotiations without destroying the trust that has been built over time in the business angel – venture relationship. The strategy provides a scapegoat for the negativity associated with the negotiations. The bad cop assumes the blame, while the good cop is still trusted and can remain in the relationship, with less risk of being the target of any retained hostility.

    Consumer marketing replicability: Concept and strategies2009In: European Journal of Management, ISSN 1555-4015, Vol. 9, no 3, p. 134-141Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this conceptual paper, it is argued that companies need to adapt to the impact globalized broadbandInternet has on the marketing of goods in terms of replicability, a concept based on consumer satisfactionand the cost of obtaining the same subjective consumption experience from another source (includingproducing it yourself). Three types of goods are defined: non-, semi- and completely replicable. Firmsoffering non- and semi-replicable goods will still make profits, while it is argued that in the long run, firmsoffering only completely replicable goods will not be competitive, and disappear. The theoretical argumentis illustrated by the recent development of the movie industry in terms of replicability of the goods offered.It is argued that firms need to perform an in-depth analysis of their current consumers in order to be ableto segment them in terms of their perception of replicability of the goods. Three strategies for handlingreplicability are presented: branding, bundling and pricing. These entail perceptual repositioning fromreplicability towards non-replicability in the mind of consumers, as well as directing differentiated pricing strategies towards each consumer segment.

    Good Cop – Bad Cop: Multiple Principals in Informal Investment Relationships2009Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The principal-agent relationship (Ross, 1973; Jensen & Meckling, 1976) has been analyzed extensively in economics, in political science and, increasingly, within sociology (Kiser, 1999). The majority of economic papers on the principal-agent relationship has focused on a single principal and a single agent, or in our context, a single investor and a single investee. There is an increasing interest in moving beyond this traditional investor-investee dyad (Lockett et al., 2006). The present paper represents such an attempt, as it studies the dynamics in a specific case with multiple investors and a single founder. The case shows that in agency situations, principals can cooperate to influence the agent by taking on different roles towards the agent. In the case, some principals are distanced from the agent, while the one responsible for communication with the founder decreases his principality in order to reduce perceived hierarchical distance and emphasize perceived goal congruence

    Mentoring the CEO or monitoring the ROI?: The business angel’s interrole in the venture relationship2014Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In its normal context, a mentor is a trusted senior person who provides guidance and support to the protégé by keeping the best interest of the protégé in mind at all times. Earlier research has indicated that business angels are perceived as mentors by venture members, especially CEOs. An argument put forward in this paper is that an investor does not always have the protégé’s best interests in mind and, at times, prioritizes the return on investment instead. In some situations, this role conflict might become severe. If the business angel continues in the mentor role, the protégé might take the venture on a very costly and risky course of action, whereas if the business angel switches to the investor role and simply vetoes the idea of the CEO through the authority of being a major owner, the venture might be saved from the same costly adventures, but the protégé can be severely dismayed. Presumably, switching from the role of mentor to that of investor in this fashion would destroy the trust held by the protégé that the business angel really had the protégé’s best interests in mind, and would have repercussions on the relationship for a long time afterwards. This role conflict between being both an investor and a mentor is explored in the paper. Based on information gathered from semi-structured face-to-face interviews with 9 business angels, an image emerges wherein the business angel remains in the mentoring role for as long as possible, given the perceived costs. The paper suggests that in order to understand what perceived costs mean for an investor, the concept of affordable loss (Sarasvathy, 2001) is of great use.One of the implications of affordable loss for an entrepreneur is envisioning the worst-case scenario and the money lost in that case (Dew, Sarasvathy, Read, & Wiltbank, 2009). For a business angel, affordable loss could mean the same: the business angel could picture the cost of the worst-case scenario by studying the current course of action and decide whether it is affordable or not. As long as the worst-case cost associated with a certain course of action is lower than the affordable loss, the business angel will continue to fulfill the role of mentor in support of the venture chief executive officer (CEO). However, if the cost exceeds the affordable loss limit, the business angel will switch to the monitoring role, thereby prohibiting this course of action.

    Noncontractual Governance Strategies of Business Angels in the Post-Investment Venture Relationship 2014Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Business angels fulfil an important economic role in society by getting involved in early-stage ventures. This dissertation aspires to advance our knowledge of the governance strategies used by business angels in the venture relationship, based on the idea that the choice of governance strategies depends on the individual venture but is also shaped by the strategies adopted by any business angel network (BAN) the business angel is part of.

    Major findings are twofold. First, the analysis suggests that governance strategies are role-contingent. The role of the business angel vis-a-vis the venture changes, typically from outsider to insider, as the relationship transitions through different stages. Business angels should only use governance strategies that are perceived as legitimate for their role. Moreover, all strategies do not mix well and some may even neutralize each other when used together. The impact of the BAN on the action of the individual business angel is not straightforward: the formalization of a BAN will certainly restrict individual action, but, on the other hand, it seems that the BAN can also be useful for managing conflicts.

    Second, results indicate that conceptualizing the long-term dynamic of the investor-venture relationship in terms of any single theoretical perspective, be it agency theory, procedural justice, or norm-based influence, is too simplistic. The utility of each theoretical perspective is role-contingent: a business angel in the outsider role is better understood with agency theory, whereas a business angel in the insider role is better understood with norm-based influence theory.

    The empirical data on individual business angels comes mainly from 30 interviews with 21 business angels, and some supplementary data. The analysis of BANs is made differently and based on a different data set consisting of approximately 150 interviews with BAN members, civil servants, politicians, banks, accountants, and entrepreneurs.

    The impact of financial capital, human capital and social capital on the evolution of Business Angel Networks2013In: International Journal of Corporate Governance, ISSN 1754-3037, E-ISSN 1754-3045, Vol. 4, no 3, p. 209-228Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Business angels are very important for the growth and development of start–ups as they contribute much needed capital and competence to these firms. During the past decades the formation and growth of Business Angel Networks (BANs) has become an increasingly common phenomenon and an important issue for policy–makers in most Western economies. In this paper, we follow the inception and development of three local BANs. The data in this paper come from in–depth interviews with the founders of the networks as well as bankers, civil servants, entrepreneurs and local politicians. The results indicate that capital alone will not guarantee success in a BAN rather it is a combination of the financial capital, human capital and social capital among the founding partners of the network.

    Business angel post-investment activities: a multi-level review2014In: Journal of Management and Governance, ISSN 1385-3457, E-ISSN 1572-963XArticle in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, empirical research on post-investment activities of business angels is reviewed and conceptualized as five distinct governance processes: boundary spanning, structuring, leadership, doing, and monitoring. These processes have the potential to reduce the exposure of business angels to relational risk and market risk. The identification of these governance processes also contributes towards understanding the social aspect of business angels’ post investment involvement. In particular, it is shown how the recognition of the cognitive/institutional dimension opens up for new questions about post-investment involvement. Finally, it is proposed that venture performance can be enhanced in practice if business angels and venture members develop skills that are connected to the governance processes.
