“Do social entrepreneurship organizations have different critical success factors than other organizations? – An explorative study”
I am a 25 year old research assistant and a second-year PhD student at the Centre for Sustainability Management (CSM) of Leuphana University Lueneburg (Germany).
I completed my undergraduate degree in business administration majoring in asset management, business reporting, and marketing at the International School of Management Dortmund (Germany). Following, I attended The University of Queensland (Australia) for my Masters degree in International Business. During this time, I found my academic passion for issues of entrepreneurship and sustainable development.
As part of my work, I am teaching social entrepreneurship courses on a theoretical and practical level in an interdisciplinary module open to all faculties. I am working at the Social Change Hub of Leuphana University supporting students in their ambition to start their own social entrepreneurship organization by offering workshops as well as intensive individual support.
My PhD thesis focusses on growth processes in social entrepreneurship, particularly success factors and internationalization strategies.
My most favorite free time activity is travelling. As holidays only provide one facet of different cultures, I always try to bring experience abroad into studying and working. This has led me to go on language trips to Canada, the UK and the US, to go to High School in New Zealand, to study in Australia and Switzerland, to work in Turkey as well as to teach in Finland. To balance all the “sitting at the desk”, I do sports, preferably dancing, but also archery, indoor rock-climbing, and jogging.
