As an Academic Entrepreneur I have built and managed Management Programs at Yale, Georgia Tech, University of Arizona, and Stony Brook. Specifically I have served for many years as a Board Member of SBU’s Faculty Student Association that supervises all businesses on campus, and the ShiftGroup that that has developed Genesis as an entrepreneurial game that may change entrepreneurial education.

Research: Innovation has been my focus recently and Cooperation drove my early career. Innovation research includes opportunity development in technology and other countries of Hungary and Sweden, startup persistence and financial commitment, and pricing strategy of new products. Cooper-ation within and between teams includes leadership, and intergroup competition using gaming.

Teaching: Tech Innovation and Entrepreneurship Across Countries use learning by doing startup projects for clients or self. Teaching drove decades of students who researched and wrote hundreds of startup business plans for themselves and entrepreneurs.
