Prof Matthew Grimes’s research examines how individuals and organisations create, introduce, and sustain positive social change by way of entrepreneurship. To this end he studies both the contextual factors that enable innovation and social change as well as the individual factors that motivate and sustain individuals’ commitment to such change. He studies these factors primarily in contexts such as social innovation, B Corporations, and entrepreneurial ecosystems, where attempts to create, introduce, and sustain social change and innovation are particularly important and challenging. His work appears in leading management and entrepreneurship journals such as the “Academy of Management Review”, the “Academy of Management Journal”, “Strategic Management Journal”, and the “Journal of Business Venturing”.
