From September 2022 to February 2023, I was a visiting scholar at Babson College (Entrepreneurship Division). During my research stay, I was hosted by William B. Gartner (Bertarelli Foundation Distinguished Professor of Family Entrepreneurship). My research stay at Babson was one of the highlights of my doctoral studies. Being surrounded by like-minded entrepreneurship scholars and embedded in a vibrant academic environment helped me grow as a researcher and pave my way to a career in academia. After having returned from the US, I started a postdoctoral researcher position at the Technical University of Munich.

The AGBC Travel Stipend allowed me not only to conduct my PhD research in California by interviewing practitioners of German Cultural Institutions and attending their public events as the research subject of my analysis, it also gave me the opportunity for an extended stay during which I was able to reflect on my research findings in the broader context of the diverse cultural scene of Los Angeles.
