DIT PhD student Kisito Futonge Nzembezie and DIT Lecturer Dr Anthony Buckley won a 'Best Paper' award for their research on digital entrepreneurship at the Institute of Small Business and Entrepreneurship (ISBE) conference in Birmingham, UK.
The award is a major validation of Kisi's PhD project, which is challenging conventional wisdom in digital entrepreneurship research.
ISBE is the premier UK association for entrepreneurship and SMEs, and the conference is the major annual UK conference in the entrepreneurship and SME domain.
Kisi completed his MSc (Business & Entrepreneurship) in DIT School of Marketing in 2015, winning the Gold Medal on the programme. His PhD research is funded through a DIT Fiosraigh Scholarship. Dr Anthony Buckley and Professor Thomas Cooney are supervising the project.
