Luck, Action, and Uncertainty:
Creating momentum in an entrepreneurial context
Thursday 15 April 2021 - 12:00-12h45 p.m (CEST)
What is luck and why does it happen? Studies from multiple research fields have identified instances of luck after the fact, but their ability to predict how and why luck happens is limited. Most commonly, we wonder whether luck is random or a result of our deliberate choice combined with hard work. In Professor Yi Dragon Jiang's most current research, she looks at how and why luck happens, including concrete actions and sequential patterns that lead to instances of luck. In this masterclass, she will explain how actions based on randomness, hunches, resilience, connectivity, and deliberate choice lead to luck instances and create momentum in an entrepreneurial context.
