ERJ Advisory Board Members’ Bios

Howard E. Aldrich, University of North Carolina

Howard E. Aldrich is Kenan Professor of Sociology at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, where he won the Carlyle Sitterson Award for Outstanding Teaching in 2002. He is chair of the Department of Sociology and Adjunct Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship, in the Kenan Flagler Business School and a Faculty Research Associate in the Strategy Area of the Duke University Fuqua School of Business. In 2000, he received two honors: the Swedish Foundation of Small Business Research named him the Entrepreneurship Researcher of the Year and the Organization and Management Division of the Academy of Management presented him with an award for a Distinguished Career of Scholarly Achievement. His 1999 book, Organizations Evolving, won the Academy of Management George Terry Award as the best management book published in 1998-99, and was co-winner of the Max Weber Award from the American Sociological Association’s Section on Organizations, Occupations, and Work. His 1979 book, Organizations and Environments, was reprinted in 2007 as a "classic" by Stanford University press. His books have been translated into Japanese and Farsi.

His research focuses on the conditions under which new ventures are founded, with special attention to the composition of startup teams. Over the past decade, he has been a co-investigator in two large panel studies of nascent entrepreneurs: The Panel Study of Entrepreneurial Dynamics I and II. Using these nationally representative multi-wave data sets, he has collaborated with Martin Ruef and Nancy Carter to investigate the extent to which new venture teams are homophilous by gender, race, and occupational composition. Using the PSED I with Phillip Kim, he's investigated the relative influence of human capital, social capital, and financial capital on participation in new venture creation. In another project with Steve Bradley, Dean Shepherd, and Johan Wiklund, published in the Strategic Management Journal, he has investigated the impact of organizational founding conditions on the extent to which new firms can survive radical environmental changes. That study showed that independent new firms have higher initial mortality rates but survive environmental turbulence better than new subsidiaries of other firms. Beginning in the 1980s, he pioneered the cross nationalstudy of social networks and new venture creation, focusing particularly on gender differences in networking strategies.
