Biographical Info

Matthew Marx is the Mitsui Career Development Professor and an Associate Professor of Technological Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Strategic Management at the MIT Sloan School of Management. Drawing on his experience working in both Silicon Valley and Boston startups, Marx studies the systematic and institutional barriers to the growth of new ventures. His current research focuses on the implications of employee non-compete agreements, which are ostensibly used to protect trade secrets, but also may impact interorganizational and cross-regional mobility, utilization of expertise, and the ability of small companies to attract talent. In other work, he examines strategy formation in new ventures as well as the allocation of equity among co-founders.
