This article reviews the academic contri- butions of the 2012 receiver of the Global Award for Entrepreneurship Research, Professor Kathleen Ei- senhardt, Stanford Warren Ascherman Professor of Management Science and Engineering at Stanford University. The Global Award consists of 100,000 euro and a statuette by the internationally renowned Swedish sculptor Carl Milles. Eisenhardt’s work focuses on strategy, strategic decision making, and innovation in rapidly changing and highly competitive markets. Her work in the entrepreneurship field centers on strategy and organization, especially in technology-based companies, what she refers to as ‘‘high-velocity industries’’. Her main empirical con- tribution to the entrepreneurship field is her work on ‘corporate entrepreneurship’—how existing organiza- tions can remain innovative, including through new venture creation. More generally, Kathleen Eisen- hardt’s research has bridged the two fields of entre- preneurship research and organization science. Keywords
