2021 Luncheon Speaker: Dr. Nabamita Dutta
Entrepreneurship - The rising role of culture
While extensive research on the interaction between economic factors and formal institutions (laws, policies, etc.) exists, the role of informal institutions (i.e. cultural traits) is less understood. This talk will summarize the importance of informal institutions in shaping entrepreneurial growth and development within a country’s formal institutions and emphasize differences related to gender and entrepreneurship.
