Institutional Environment And Ipo Strategy: A Study Of Chinext In China, Jing Zhang, Wei Zhang, Andreas Schwab, Sipei Zhang 2018 Old Dominion University

Institutional Environment And Ipo Strategy: A Study Of Chinext In China, Jing Zhang, Wei Zhang, Andreas Schwab, Sipei Zhang

Andreas Schwab

Taking an institution-based view, we investigate how entrepreneurs respond to immature regulatory environments in order to be listed on stock markets in countries with an emerging economy. Unlike stock markets in developed countries, in emerging markets, gaining government approval for listing is a critical and more unpredictable process for entrepreneurs. Hence, entrepreneurs who are preparing for a public offering might give substantially discounted shares to venture capital (VC) investors. This will lead to higher investment returns in pre-IPO deals than those at earlier stages, which distorts the risk-return tradeoff found in developed markets. In particular, the VC investors affiliated with ...

Me-Mail: A New Approach To Student Listservs, Hunter J. Rowe

University campuses and other institutions across the nation struggle with installing and operating an internal and unified source of communication. In the era of e-mail, text-messaging, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and many more software applications, college campuses in particular are always looking to adapt best practices and reach the maximum amount of people with engaging content.

Perfect Ratings With Negative Comments: Learning From Contradictory Patient Survey Responses, Andrew S. Gallan, Marina Girju, Roxana Girju 2017 DePaul University

Perfect Ratings With Negative Comments: Learning From Contradictory Patient Survey Responses, Andrew S. Gallan, Marina Girju, Roxana Girju

Patient Experience Journal

This research explores why patients give perfect domain scores yet provide negative comments on surveys. In order to explore this phenomenon, vendor-supplied in-patient survey data from eleven different hospitals of a major U.S. health care system were utilized. The dataset included survey scores and comments from 56,900 patients, collected from January 2015 through October 2016. Of the total number of responses, 30,485 (54%) contained at least one comment. For our analysis, we use a two-step approach: a quantitative analysis on the domain scores augmented by a qualitative text analysis of patients’ comments. To focus the research, we ...

Funding Science With Science (And, Admittedly, A Lot Of Math), John R. Ziegler, Dylan Hunzeker, Edward Lehner 2017 CUNY Bronx Community College

Funding Science With Science (And, Admittedly, A Lot Of Math), John R. Ziegler, Dylan Hunzeker, Edward Lehner

Publications and Research

Scientific funding within the academy is an often complicated affair involving disparate and competing interests. Private universities, for instance, are vastly outpacing public institutions in garnering large, prestigious grants. Inequities also extend to the kinds of research funded, with government, corporate, and even military interests privileging certain types of inquiry.This work proposes an innovative type of research fund using cryptocurrencies, a fast growing asset class. Although not a total funding solution, staking coins, specifically, can be strategically invested in to yield compound interest. These coins use central hub technology to collateralise the network and speed transaction pace. Additionally. These ...


Modeling The Consumer Acceptance Of Retail Service Robots, So Young Song 2017 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Modeling The Consumer Acceptance Of Retail Service Robots, So Young Song

Doctoral Dissertations

This study uses the Computers Are Social Actors (CASA) and domestication theories as the underlying framework of an acceptance model of retail service robots (RSRs). The model illustrates the relationships among facilitators, attitudes toward Human-Robot Interaction (HRI), anxiety toward robots, anticipated service quality, and the acceptance of RSRs. Specifically, the researcher investigates the extent to which the facilitators of usefulness, social capability, the appearance of RSRs, and the attitudes toward HRI affect acceptance and increase the anticipation of service quality. The researcher also tests the inhibiting role of pre-existing anxiety toward robots on the relationship between these facilitators and attitudes ...
