Nicolas Friederici
Nicolas is a postdoctoral researcher at the Oxford Internet Institute working on the Geonet project. He studies how digital entrepreneurship works in environments that are far more challenging than Silicon Valley or London. His comparative grounded research covers African cities including Nairobi Lagos Accra Kigali and Harare. Nicolas is interested in the interplay of environmental factors with entrepreneurial motivations and capacities. Ultimately this work addresses the question how and why digital entrepreneurship flourishes in some places but not in others.
