Doug Hannah is an assistant professor of Strategy & Innovation at the Questrom School of Business at Boston University, where he studies strategy, innovation, and entrepreneurship. He did his doctoral work at the Stanford Technology Ventures Program, in the Management Science and Engineering Department at Stanford University, and subsequently worked at the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin.
He studies strategy and entrepreneurship in technology-based industries like solar, medical devices, and social media. These settings are challenging because they require constant innovation as well as collaboration, but require firms to interact within the context of substantial competitive and technological uncertainty. As a result, it's often unclear where opportunities lie and what must be done to capture them.
He holds a B.A. in Environmental Studies from Dartmouth College and an M.S. Prior to his academic life, he co-founded an environmental advocacy group, the Big Green Bus, worked as an analyst at the Cadmus Group in Boston and as a Fellow at the Natural Resources Defense Council, and enjoyed a stint on a wonderful farm in Lesotho.
