Expertise, Research & Teaching Interests
Ted’s main research interests revolve around sport entrepreneurship. Sport entrepreneurship involves using sport as a catalyst for innovation and entrepreneurial activity. Sport is intimately connected to society in ways traditional industries aren’t. Therefore, people tend to trust sport enterprises and think of them as altruistic, whereas other firms (Facebook, Shell Oil, etc) are seen as primarily self-interested. Entrepreneurs can therefore leverage the power of sport to generate new ventures that fix social ills while also being financially lucrative.
