    Vilma Chila is an Assistant Professor in Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the Amsterdam Business School, University of Amsterdam. She is interested in entrepreneurship, innovation, and strategic management. Her current research focuses on understanding a) why some employees leave their jobs in existing firms to found their own ventures, b) the factors that shape how new ventures develop capabilities for innovation and assemble resources, and c) the extent to which the creation of new ventures from former employees unleashes selection pressures on incumbent firms. Her work has been published at the Journal of Business Venturing, and her dissertation was a finalist for the Heizer Dissertation Award in New Enterprise Development, Entrepreneurship division of the Academy of Management.
