Recently, the committee of National Natural Science Foundation of China announced the evaluation results of major projects of the National Natural Science Foundation of China. The project of “Research on New Enterprise Entrepreneurship Models Driven by Digital Innovation” presided over by Professor Li Dayuan from the team of academician Chen Xiaohong of our school, received funding.
Entrepreneurship driven by digital innovation has become an important driving force for current economic development. New industries, new formats, and new models that integrate digital technologies such as big data and artificial intelligence with business opportunities continue to emerge, prompting the value creation, decision-making mechanisms, and business models of new enterprises to generate fundamental changes. How to use digital means to effectively promote the entrepreneurship of new enterprises and promote the cultivation and growth of emerging industries is a practical problem that needs to be solved urgently.
The "Research on New Enterprise Entrepreneurship Model Driven by Digital Innovation" carries out research around problems about the new enterprise entrepreneurship model driven by digital innovation and its basic laws, the creation and growth of new enterprise driven by digital innovation, and how to promote the entrepreneurship of new enterprise driven by digital innovation. Starting from the unique mechanism of new enterprise entrepreneurship driven by digital innovation, the external user participation and value co-creation mechanism, and the internal entrepreneurial decision-making mechanism of new enterprise entrepreneurship driven by digital innovation will be revealed, and then the design and application of new enterprise entrepreneurship models will be analyzed. This project will help guide the practice of new enterprise entrepreneurship driven by digital innovation, and provide scientific basis and policy recommendations for the implementation of our country's "digital China", "double innovation" and high-quality development strategies.
