Early Life & Career[edit]

Davidsson grew up in Sandviken, a small, one-employer steel town in Sweden. He received his BA in Business Administration in 1984, his MSc. in 1987 and his PhD in Economic Psychology in 1989 at Stockholm School of Economics. In 1990 he moved to Umeå University, where he got involved in an international-collaborative project with the entrepreneurship academics David Storey and Paul Reynolds, which ignited his international career. In 1994, he moved to take part in the start-up of Jönköping International Business School (JIBS) to start a high-class business school with an entrepreneurship focus. During this time, Davidsson helped in the creation of a research environment within JIBS; it was recently identified as second in the world in entrepreneurship and first in Scandinavia in business research.[2][3]

Throughout his career, Davidsson has served as professor in many universities in Sweden and Australia and held membership as editor and reviewer in high-profile scientific journals. In 1992 he became Director of the Transportation Research Unit at Umeå University and at JIBS he served as Head of the Entrepreneurship, Marketing and Management Department and led the PEG (Program on Entrepreneurship and SMEs) research program. Through his publications and research, Davidsson is known for his interest on start-up and growth of small firms. He has published over 70 peer reviewed articles, such as Strategic Management Journal, Regional Studies, Journal of Management Studies, Entrepreneurship Theory & Practice, Entrepreneurship and Regional Development, and Journal of Business Venturing.[4]
