    The role of crowdfunding in entrepreneurial ventures: An analysis of recent trends in Sweden2016In: Investment Management and Financial Innovations, ISSN 1810-4967, E-ISSN 1812-9358, Vol. 13, no 1, p. 221-229Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The financing of entrepreneurial ventures has been at the forefront of academic debate as well as policy-making discussion for almost a century. In general, there seems to be an agreement that the risks associated with business startups are higher than for mature firms, hence, these ventures will have to pay a higher interest rate than more mature and large firms. In this paper the authors analyze the role of a relatively new form of financing for entrepreneurial ventures - crowdfunding - And how this form of financing is similar and different from traditional sources of finance. The authors are also presenting different forms and models of crowdfunding available on the market together with illustrations from the crowdfunding industry in Sweden. The analysis indicates that the positive effects with crowdfunding are numerous but that the size of the crowdfunding sector is relatively small in comparison with the banking and venture capital industry.

    Entrepreneurial orientation, control aversion and performance in SMEs: The contribution of equity investors2016In: Problems & Perspectives in Management, ISSN 1727-7051, E-ISSN 1810-5467, Vol. 14, no 3, p. 55-64Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Entrepreneurial orientation is a concept that captures the importance of how and why certain individuals decide to take higher risks than the average small business owner so as to increase their return on assets deployed. Entrepreneurial orientation is linked to the concept of control aversion, which is used to explain why certain individuals refrain from using external financing to expand their firms. Control aversion suggests that most small business owners prefer to maintain total control rather than invite in the potentially disruptive influence of an external owner/investor. This study combines these two concepts in an attempt to introduce financing and investors into the discussion of entrepreneurial orientation and performance. Equity investors are shown to have a major influence on entrepreneurial performance, because business owners with an entrepreneurial orientation gain substantially from interaction with investors through the transfer of knowledge. The model was tested with a LInear Structural RELations (LISREL) analysis on a sample of 459 Swedish small and medium-sized enterprises.

    Revisiting control aversion: The role of financiers in connecting entrepreneurs to the marketplace2015In: Journal of Small Business and Enterprise Development, ISSN 1462-6004, E-ISSN 1758-7840, Vol. 22, no 3, p. 417-432Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to investigate the effects of small business entrepreneurs’ relinquishment of control aversion and the impact of their interaction with external financiers on market connection. Design/methodology/approach – Questionnaires were sent to the chief executive officers of small businesses in the manufacturing and professional services sectors. A total of 459 valid responses were analyzed in a structural equation model. Findings – The attitude of small business entrepreneurs in relying on financiers’ advice is marked by control aversion. This fear of losing control creates information asymmetry, which in itself leads to decreased financing opportunities for small business entrepreneurs. The results of the study suggest that small firms seeking the aid of financiers will be provided with substantial additional information about the market. Issues pertaining to supply seem to be less relevant than those relating to demand, thus indicating that greater focus should be placed on the investment readiness of small businesses. Originality/value – This study emphasizes the importance of the role of attitudes among SMEs in understanding capital market failure and credit rationing.

    Commercial real estate and business angel activity2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Business angels are far more important in promoting the growth of young knowledge-based entrepreneurial firms than any other private equity financiers (Mason and Harrison 2000; Aernoudt and Erikson 2002, Reynolds et al 2002). The encouragement of business angel investments is therefore a core issue for public policy. One of the key issues in business angel research is why individuals engage in business angel activities. Business angels are known to not only to focus on capital generation, as altruistic motives are important as is the general appreciation of aiding new entrepreneurs (Paul et al 2003). There is also a connection between business angel activity and the generation of local social capital. Business angel networks include successful entrepreneurs that engage in business angel networks for social capital purposes (Reitan and Sörheim 2000). These business angels often have a significant holding of local commercial real estate. This study is an in depth study of business angels and the role commercial real estate has on the willingness to become a business angel. The study adds to business angel research and real estate property research the perspective that for some business angel investors the business angel community enhances their possibilities to generate business for their commercial real estate properties. The study will use a combined business angel theory and social capital theory in order to conceptually investigate the connection between commercial real estate and business angel activity.

    The close relationship strategy: Corporate brand development in banking2009In: Journal of Brand Management, ISSN 1350-231X, E-ISSN 1479-1803, Vol. 17, no 4, p. 289-300Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the paper is to analyze how different dimensions of the relationship between banks and small to medium-sized enterprises (SME) influence the SMEs’ loyalty towards the banks. A survey was administered to 1024 CEOs of Swedish SMEs. In the questionnaire, a number of aspects of the relationship with the bank were examined, especially how banks contribute to the development of the SMEs, and how this affects the SMEs’ loyalty. This paper posits The Close Relationship Strategy, which implies that by being more active in the relationship, banks could create more satisfied and loyal SME customers. The study has relevance for banks that are trying to develop their corporate brands through a closer relationship with SMEs. The paper provides a framework for understanding how banks can achieve customer loyalty and develop their brands by focusing on important aspects of the relationship with their SME customers. This study provides important insights into SMEs’ perceptions of their banks’ capacity to deliver meaningful advice, and how a positive relationship can create more loyal customers.

    The influence of bank branch closure on entrepreneurship sustainabilityManuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    We study the influence of bank branch closure on new firm formation in Sweden, with a panel database that captures the geographical locations of all the Swedish bank branches from 2000 to 2013. Using spatial econometric analysis at a municipal level, we show that bank proximity to firms is vital for entrepreneurship to thrive and sustain in Sweden. From the Fixed-Effects spatial models, the increase in distance to the banks due to bank branch closure is shown to affect new firm formation negatively. The further a firm is located away from the bank, the higher the monitoring cost is for the banks. The increase in distance also results in an increase in information asymmetries because of the banks’ eroded ability to collect soft information about the borrower firm. Due to high risks associated with the lack of information and uncertainty, banks might not be as willing to loan money to a distant firm compared to a nearby firm. Furthermore, the presence of neighbourhood spillover effects is evidenced through the Moran’s I statistics, which means that the omission of spatial effects in the analysis would have resulted in biased estimates.
