Ted Baker, Rutgers University, US

Ted Baker holds the George F. Farris Chair in Entrepreneurship and is director of the Rutgers Advanced Institute for the Study of Entrepreneurship and Development (RAISED) at Rutgers University. He is also Honorary Professor at the University of Cape Town and Senior Fellow of the Bertha Centre for Social Innovation & Entrepreneurship, and also Fellow & Founding Member of the IfM (Institut für Mittelstandsforschung) Research Fellows Network, Bonn, Germany. Ted spent much of the first half of his adult life building a variety of technology-rich entrepreneurial ventures. His research explores entrepreneurship under resource constraints and adversity, focusing on sources and patterns of resourceful behavior. His current work on Founder Identity Theory (FIT) extends this by drawing on the social psychology of identity to explore the processes through which entrepreneurship sometimes allows people to pursue their goals and become who they want to be despite common problems of resource constraint and adversity. His work has been published in leading outlets, for example, Administrative Science Quarterly, Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Business Venturing and Entrepreneurship Theory & Practice.

Matthew Grimes, Cambridge University, UK

Matthew Grimes's research examines how individuals and organizations 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. Matthew currently serves on the editorial review boards of Administrative Science Quarterly, Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Journal of Business Venturing and Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal.

Claire Leitch, Lancaster University, UK

My greatest leadership strengths are my high degree of emotional intelligence, my ability to challenge and influence at all levels, to work in partnership and obtain consensus from different stakeholders, vital for implementing policy in a complex regulatory environment. I have a research reputation of international standing and recognition in gender, leadership and learning in entrepreneurial contexts. The reach and impact of my research is significant in advancing scholarship and influencing organisational and national policy. In particular, I concentrate on the development, enhancement and growth of entrepreneurial leaders, and their businesses, taking into consideration the role social context plays. Currently I am leading a major EU project addressing gender inequality in management schools, which is shaping national and international EDI agendas. Within academia I have held many leadership positions and at the moment I am Interim Dean of Lancaster University Management School, Lancaster University, UK.
