Before joining the Open University Business School, Henry was a research fellow at the University of Cambridge’s Centre for Business Research (CBR). He received his PhD on the pricing of listed private equity from Technical University Munich and has previously worked on several projects concerned with financing activities of innovative firms and the consequences of venture capital and private equity financing in small and large enterprises. His research at the CBR and TU Munich was funded by the European Commission’s FP7 programme, the UK Innovation Research Centre as well as the German Federal Ministry of Finance and the German State Media Authorities.
Prospective doctoral students with an interest in private equity (e.g., angel investing, VC, buyout, crowdfunding), innovation finance or behavioural finance and strong quantitative skills who want to pursue an academic career are encouraged to get in touch with Henry.
