Casey Frid is Assistant Professor of Management at the Lubin School of Business at Pace University. He teaches Venture Initiation & Entrepreneurship, International Entrepreneurship, and Business Strategy in the undergraduate program; and he advises undergraduate research projects.
Casey’s research focuses on the earliest stages of the venture creation process, and how actions undertaken by nascent entrepreneurs impact the formation of new firms. One stream of research examines what actions are needed to obtain external financing, and when external financing occurs relative to other start-up activities during organizational emergence. A second stream investigates how acquiring specific sources of financing (e.g., personal savings, friends and family, bank loans) shapes the founding of nascent ventures. A third stream explores links between the amount of financing and the creation of high-potential ventures.
Casey received his Ph.D. and MBA from Clemson University. Prior to starting his Ph.D., Casey lived in Juiz de Fora, Brazil, where he worked on two startup companies while running his own business. He also developed export strategies for firms in the Southeastern United States for the South Carolina Export Consortium; marketing strategies for a project partnership between LogicTree, Inc. and Telecom Egypt; and he cleaned and analyzed data on pension plan holdings for all U.S. private, government, and military organizations for the U.S. Department of Commerce Bureau of Economic Analysis, Washington, DC.
