Grimes Matthew

Dr 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 (e.g. regional and institutional differences) that enable innovation and social change as well as the individual factors (e.g. demographic and identity differences) that motivate and sustain individuals’ commitment to such change.

He studies these factors primarily in contexts such as social entrepreneurship and business incubators/accelerators, where attempts to create, introduce, and sustain social change and innovation are particularly important and challenging.
