We are happy to host this years minitrack on “Digital Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Deep Tech” at at American Conference on Information Systems in Minneapolis. Professors Janina Sundermeier (FUB) and Hannes Rothe (ICN) join forces with Laia Pujol Priego (IESE) and invite scholars to to submit their best work until March 1, 2022. The minitrack is a follow-up to our successful PDW at ICIS 2021, and we hope that we can drive research on how to produce and leverage innovations and ventures in deep tech further.
Technologies such as artificial intelligence, quantum computing, robotics, drones, autonomous driving, photonics, and computational biology promise groundbreaking new products and services. While providing good prospects in theory, these digital technologies are “deep” in that they rely on cutting-edge science with long research and development timelines. Digital tools and data play an important role for the development and commercialization of deep technologies. Digital innovation and digital entrepreneurship research, however, has focused largely on demand-pull, consumer-driven markets such as social media or gig economy platforms where sophisticated technology is not pivotal for their success. Together with the SIG Digital Innovation, Transformation, and Entrepreneurship (SIG DITE), we seek high quality submissions that contribute to the understanding of deep technologies as enablers, outcomes, or contexts for entrepreneurship and innovation (e.g., von Briel 2020, Nambisan 2017).
