    Backers’ crowdfunding journey – An engagement perspective2021Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Crowdfunding refers to accumulating small sums of money from the general public through the Internet for a collective larger amount to fund small or medium-sized ventures in exchange for some benefit. The contribution can be as a donation (for no material reward), a purchase (for getting a reward in return), debt (to get money returned), or equity (for sharing future profit). The three main actors in crowdfunding are the initiators (the venturers), the backers (the crowd members who fund), and the crowdfunding platforms (the intermediaries). The crowdfunding campaign’s survival and success depends on engagement from the crowd. Using a qualitative research method, this dissertation aimed to understand the backers’ engagement with four crowdfunding campaigns selected from the leading crowdfunding platform, Kickstarter, through processual analysis. Buildingon the integrative framework of service-dominant logic, engagement, and customer journey, the underlying mechanism of the backers’ engagement at the personal (micro) and interpersonal (meso) levels were explored. Based on the motivation and contribution pattern, the backers were segmented into four engagement roles: benefactors, patrons, shoppers, and utilisers. A deeper analysis showed how the engagement intensity, duration, valence, and engagement properties shaped over time across these roles. The insights from the findings in the dissertation carry managerial and policy implications.

    Expanding understanding of family social capital in crowdfunding of migrant entrepreneurial ventures2023In: Journal of Enterprising Communities: People and Places in the Global Economy, ISSN 1750-6204, E-ISSN 1750-6212, Vol. 17, no 1, p. 182-207Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    The purpose of this study is to understand the role of the migrant entrepreneur's social capital and specifically their family social capital in the success of their crowdfunding ventures.

    Design/methodology/approach

    This paper develops an exploratory single case study of the Persu Bag started by a Chinese migrant entrepreneur in the USA, which was documented through in-depth interviews, email communication, social media interactions and secondary documents publicly available. This paper draws on crowdfunding and social capital literature to fulfil the purpose and adopt the perspective of the migrant entrepreneur in the study.

    Findings

    The study shows that the crowdfunding migrant entrepreneur's family network contributes with their operand and operant resources from both the country of residence and country of origin. Besides having financial capacity, institutional knowledge and experience from both the host and home countries, the family network in both countries make the crowdfunding immigrant entrepreneur's families more resourceful, providing additional benefits to the crowdfunding migrant entrepreneurs in the development of the campaign and crowdfunded venture.

    Originality/value

    This study broadens the understanding of the ways migrant entrepreneurs can rely on their family social capital for building financial capacity and starting a crowdfunded venture.

    Sustainable crowdfunding for subsistence entrepreneurship2020In: Entrepreneurship and the community: A multidisciplinary perspective on creativity, social challenges, and business / [ed] Vanessa Ratten, Cham: Springer, 2020, p. 49-62Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Crowdfunding research to date has mainly focused on the nature and dynamics characterizing platforms containing creative and innovative ideas, while less attention has been given to subsistence entrepreneurship which centers on social, environmental, and economic concerns. This chapter develops a conceptual framework to examine the sustainable crowdfunding process supporting subsistence entrepreneurship, and then using the framework, the case illustration of Kiva is presented to describe how sustainable crowdfunding facilitates the development of ventures created to alleviate poverty and promote sustainability. The proposed framework combines elements of crowdfunding with aspects of sustainability, as well as subsistence entrepreneurship. Subsistence entrepreneurship includes the actions, activities, and processes undertaken by individuals living in the bottom of the pyramid to promoting sustainability. Crowdfunding acts as a key tool to attract financial means relevant for subsistence entrepreneurship. The chapter concludes with a discussion of key implications that arise from this research.

    The reward crowdfunding campaign management process: an engagement perspective2023In: International Journal of Entrepreneurial Behaviour & Research, ISSN 1355-2554, E-ISSN 1758-6534, Vol. 30, no 11, p. 1-18Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: Crowdfunding is an increasingly popular channel for project fundraising for entrepreneurial ventures. Such efforts require fundraisers to develop and manage a crowdfunding campaign over a period of time and several stages. Thus, the authors aim to identify the stages fundraisers go through in their crowdfunding campaign process and how their engagement evolves throughout this process. Design/methodology/approach: Following a multiple case study research design analysing six successful campaigns, the current study suggests a taxonomy of stages the fundraisers go through in their crowdfunding campaign management process while identifying the types of engagement displayed and their relative intensity at each of these stages. Findings: The study proposes a five-stage process framework (pre-launch, launch, mid-campaign, conclusion and post-campaign), accompanied by a series of propositions outlining the relative intensity of different types of engagement throughout this process. The authors show that engagement levels appear with high intensity at pre-launch, and to a lesser degree also at the post-launch stage while showing low intensity at the stages in between them. More specifically, cognitive and behavioural engagement are most prominent at the pre- and post-launch stages. Emotional engagement is highest during the launch, mid-launch and conclusion stages. And social engagement maintains moderate levels of intensity throughout the process. Originality/value: This study focuses on the campaign process using engagement theory, thus identifying the differing engagement patterns throughout the dynamic crowdfunding campaign management process, not just in one part.

    Collaborative value creation in a highly adverse context: Experiences of Hazara women entrepreneurs in Balochistan2022In: Research Handbook of Women’s Entrepreneurship and Value Creation / [ed] S. Yousafzai,C. Henry, M. Boddington, S. Sheikh and A. Fayolle, Edward Elgar Publishing, 2022, p. 83-102Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The chapter aims at contributing to the literature on non-economic value creation by exploring micro firms founded by female entrepreneurs in a highly adverse context. Drawing on the experiences of three Hazara women entrepreneurs, we outline the non-economic value created by them through collaborative activities that are typically aimed at jointly improving the life situation of Hazara women. Their informal ventures closely work with external stakeholders to manage the flow of resources and transforming these resources into exchanges between customers and suppliers. We advance a view of collaborative value creation that is informal, dynamic and recognizes the importance of non-financial value creation through informal training, resources and social legitimacy in constrained contextual settings.
