Technological Innovation and Entrepreneurship
Innovation is fundamental to the competitiveness of modern firms. The importance of innovative capabilities is especially pronounced in sectors where significant and pervasive digitisation is creating new opportunities for product differentiation and enhancement, transforming business models, and ushering in a new wave of competition from digital entrepreneurs and technology giants. Firms cannot ignore the imperative to innovate in this new disruptive business environment. However, that you cannot improve what you cannot measure also renders it imperative to continually measure innovation performance and capabilities of the firm.
Technology and Industry Innovation
Through this survey, we are interested in understanding the broad impacts of innovation on productivity and worker behavior as well as the organizational mechanisms underlying such impact. A Business Model elucidates how an organization is linked to external stakeholders, and how it engages in economic exchanges with them to create value for all exchange partners. Business model innovation is the development of new, unique concepts supporting an organization's financial viability, including its mission, and the processes for bringing those concepts to fruition. The results of this study have important implications for an understanding of future shifts in innovation in firms. 
 
Objectives of Innovation
  • Information Sources for Innovation
  • Innovation Inhibitors
  • Support
  • Innovation Protection
     
SRITNE is in the process of conducting a systematic empirical study across multiple firms, which, in addressing the above research questions, will yield insights on the opportunities and critical success factors for innovations as well as the constraints faced by firms trying to innovate Using a combination of archival, field-level data analysis and qualitative interviews to address the above research questions. 
Projects
Technological Innovations and Crowdfunding:
Our research aims to assess the impact of equity-based crowdfunding on the development of new firms by examining venture selection, venture staging, and venture performance in equity crowdfunding. This paper also analyses the observable signals that lead crowd funders to select ventures and the hazard rate of receiving funding in the next round as well as the hazard of success or failure.


Technological  Innovations and Ridesharing Platforms:
Our research aims to address gaps in prior research to estimate the quantum of self-employment and income engendered by ridesharing platforms such as Uber. Additionally, it examines whether certain classes of the workforce are more likely to self-select into ridesharing platforms and benefit from it more than others. Finally, it explores the second order effects of Uber’s entry on other types of economic activity by examining the impact of Uber’s entry on distinct categories of occupation other than drivers.
