News: SMS Annual Conference PhD Paper Prize

Tom Orben, doctoral student at the Entrepreneurship & Innovation Group was nominated for the PhD Paper Prize of the Strategic Management Society (SMS) with his proposal “Distance Matters – How Proximity Affects Innovation Performance of Ventures in CVC Investment-Relationships”.

The prestigious Strategic Management Society (SMS) has developed several awards programs to recognize and honour those who have made significant contributions to the theory and practice of strategic management. The SMS Annual Conference PhD Paper Prize award was created in 2000 (with the initial support from the consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton) in recognition of a PhD candidate’s presentation of an outstanding paper at the SMS Annual Conference.

From a total of 10 finalists that are named prior to the conference, only five winners are honoured at the conference with the SMS Best Conference PhD Paper Prize and receive awards of US$1,500 each. His proud supervisors Prof. Dr Katrin Burmeister-Lamp and Prof. Dr Matthias Waldkirch as well as the entire EBS Universität are very excited and keep their fingers crossed for Tom!
