1993-1996 - In order to secure funds for the empirical part of my doctoral research I have displayed various entrepreneurial activities related to my research results. First, professional articles were written about parts of my research and sold to a Dutch journal in the area of Personnel Management. Second, I offered specialised company reports to all companies who participated in my survey and sold reports to several companies for a total of app. £1000. A subject-coded database comprising of some 1500 references in the area of international business and management that I had accumulated during my studies was offered to colleagues in the field by means of leaflets distributed at conferences and messages to mailing lists. Nearly 200 requests for information were received and a few dozen copies were sold for app. £25 each.
