Research Summary

Florian’s research interest is concentrated on the intersection of transnational entrepreneurship and social entrepreneurship at an individual and meso level. At the individual level, he studies social entrepreneurs with a migration background from developed economies, operating in underdeveloped economies or emerging markets. At the meso level, his research is concerned with organisational governance challenges of social enterprises as well as their organisation in transnational social enterprise clusters.

As the President of the Business School's Doctoral Society and Vice President of the Edinburgh Latin American Forum, Florian contributes to a vibrant student community at the University of Edinburgh. He is also a member of the school's Sustainable Business Initiative, a world-class research centre concerned with innovative and sustainable ways of social and environmental value creation.
