Prior to embarking upon her PhD, Dana Kanze co-founded and ran a venture-funded startup for five years. Her experiences as a female entrepreneur and CEO inspired her to examine gender distinctions among founders. Her research embraces a mixed methods approach, combining field and archival studies that explore correlational relationships with controlled experiments that develop causal stories. Her work has been published in The Academy of Management and The Harvard Business Review and featured in Bloomberg, Business Insider, Entrepreneur, Forbes, Fortune and The Wall Street Journal, among others. Kanze graduated magna cum laude with a BS in economics from The Wharton School and began her career as an investment banker and strategic consultant.
