As a joint-degree PhD student at the University of the Faroe Islands and the University of Greenland, David is involved in the exploration and theorization of viable entrepreneurship in small island societies. David adopts a place-based perspective in his research, conceptualizing entrepreneurship as a process unfolding in interaction with environmental enablements and constraints presented by small island settings. Although both scholars and policy makers frequently stress the importance of entrepreneurship for societal well-being, it remains a remarkably understudied area of research in small island communities. Through his dissertation, David seeks to increase the understanding of island-based entrepreneurship and the multitude of entrepreneurial possibilities existing also in places commonly depicted as resource scarce and economically vulnerable. Overall, his work as a PhD candidate centers around the empirical investigation and theoretical elaboration of entrepreneurship as a phenomenon dependent on, but not determined by, the context in which it takes place.
David is currently working on finishing his two first scholarly papers by early 2023:
"Sustaining a Craft Business at the Top of the World: The Role of Empathic Accuracy and Multiple Specificity of Resources in Entrepreneurial Value Facilitation"
"Sweet and Salty Entrepreneurship in the West Nordic Islands: Theorizing Processes of Food Business Creation in Challenging Environments"
The dissertation project is sponsored by Research Council Faroe Islands and Ilisimatusarfik
David has created and lectured the course "Small States, Innovation and Entrepreneurship" at the University of Greenland. He has furthermore acted as a student supervisor in the West Nordic Studies M.Sc. program at the University of the Faroe Islands.
