Stefanie Mauksch is an Anthropologist and Organization studies scholar.

She conducts ethnographic research on the social entrepreneurship movement, startup communities and the effects of entrepreneurial initiatives, preferably in the Global South. Her research is largely focused on how entrepreneurship – as a global paradigm advocating emancipation through micro-economic innovations and self-improvement – shapes local action in contexts of development, in particular Nepal and Sudan, and in specific social fields, such as meanings and experiences of dis/ability. She publishes her work in both disciplines of Anthropology and Organization Studies.
