Keynote Speaker

Prof. Saras Saraswathy

Paul Hammaker Professor of Entrepreneurship

University of Virginia's Darden School of Business

 

She received her PhD from Carnegie Mellon University – Tepper School of Business. Her research involves developing the theory of effectuation through in-depth studies of entrepreneurial decision making and exploring its connections with value creation, new venture performance, and the philosophy of pragmatism.This pioneering theory posits an alternative to the classic paradigm of rational choice and is being developed and tested by several scholars whose published and working papers are available at www.effectuation.org.

 

The primary outline of the theory was published in the Academy of Management Review under the title, Causation and Effectuation: Towards a Theoretical Shift from Economic Inevitability to Entrepreneurial Contingency, and further developments were published in the Journal of Economic Psychology, The Handbook of Strategic Management, and Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice.

 

Before joining academia, Ms Sarasvathy founded and operated several businesses. One of these was a successful Indian company that manufactured plastic blow-molded and injection-molded products such as lubricant oil containers and gift articles. She earned a PhD from Carnegie Mellon University, where she also received a master’s degree in information systems and the MSIA (MBA equivalent) with a concentration in entrepreneurship and finance. Her bachelor’s degree with a major in statistics is from the University of Bombay.
