Research Expertise and Interests

Onyaglanu’s research interests lie within the context of entrepreneurial and workplace creativity and innovation. Her research focuses on two main areas:

1) Early-stage entrepreneurs: how feedback interactions shape and reshape the nascent venture; the emergence of Business models; how entrepreneurs respond to unexpected events (such as a crisis); and the role of emotions in collective creative processes

2) The role of materiality in collaborations: technology-mediated collaborations; and how collaborative spaces (such as co-working spaces, incubators and accelerators) may influence entrepreneurial ventures.

Onyaglanu’s current research examines how negative affective feedback interactions experienced by early-stage entrepreneurs, impacts on the trajectory of their business ideas. Using innovative research methods based on Experience Sampling Methods, she conducted a dynamic longitudinal study that tracked the business ideas of several early-stage entrepreneurs based within different collaborative spaces across London.
