Almantas PALUBINSKAS

Assistant Professor

Ph.D. in Business Administration

Innovation & Entrepreneurship

Themes of research

I research how regulations influence the emergence of different types of innovation, and explore the unintended consequences that regulations have on an industry's competitive environment and development. I also examine how entrepreneurial firms shape an emerging industry's competitive structure using political strategies.
