Robin De Cock is an assistant professor of entrepreneurship at Antwerp Management School. He received his PhD in applied economics from Ghent University under supervision of serial entrepreneur and Prof. dr. Bart Clarysse. He spent 3 years as a post-doc researcher at the innovation and entrepreneurship group of Imperial College Business School in London where he conducted research for the European Commission and taught entrepreneurship in various programs for bachelor and master students.

During his PhD and post-doc, he interviewed and followed more than 250 technology entrepreneurs in Flanders and Silicon Valley over a period of 9 years to investigate how entrepreneurs create technology market combinations and adapt to fast-moving and uncertain environments. His research interests are focused on technology entrepreneurship, entrepreneurial strategy, new venture adaptation, entrepreneurial team formation and processes and technology-market search and linking. He presented his work at various top conferences around the world and published in top entrepreneurship journals. He is also author of a book on effective technology transfer.

He supports the development of the master program in Innovation and Entrepreneurship (MIE) at Antwerp Management School. In this program, he teaches Entrepreneurial Strategy and coaches in the Innovation and Entrepreneurship labs.

Finally, he was also involved in several research projects for the Flemish government (IWT, Steunpunt ondernemen, Agentschap ondernemen, FIT), Federal government (BELSPO, Koning Boudewijn Stichting) and European Commission (FP6, FP7, H2020, KIC, INTERREG) advising on various topics in innovation and entrepreneurship.
