Nicola’s research focuses on the people side of entrepreneurship. More specifically, she addresses questions of entrepreneurial affect, entrepreneurial motivation, and the collaboration in startup teams.

Her fascination for the people side of entrepreneurship also inspires her teaching which aims at developing the students’ entrepreneurial and analytical thinking.

Actively supporting the practitioner’s community is an important part of her activities and she also brings together students and startups.
