Biography

London Business School

Dr Michaël Bikard researches the emergence of new ideas and their commercialisation through various channels, including entrepreneurship. His research has received a number of awards, including first place in the MIT Sloan Doctoral Research Forum, the MIT Energy Fellowship, the Kauffman Dissertation Fellowship, the J Robert Beyster Fellowship and an NSF SBE Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grant.

He aims to uncover the circumstances in which good ideas are ignored and the circumstances in which they have a deep economic impact. He has developed a new method to address these questions, using simultaneous discoveries in science to conduct the first “twin studies” of new ideas.

Dr Bikard holds a PhD from the Technological Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Strategic Management group at the MIT Sloan School of Management.
