Deborah de Lange has always been passionate about making the world a better place, and her current focus is on using clean technology to mitigate climate change, whether through better transportation systems or greener energy systems. She brings a wealth of talent and experience to bear on these issues: an electrical engineering background, an MBA in science and technology and a PhD in strategic management, as well as years working in industry and as a strategy consultant.

She has taught globalization, sustainable strategy, high-technology strategy and international business at graduate and undergraduate levels, and currently teaches introduction to global management studies.

Since clean technology is an entrepreneurial industry, de Lange’s current research focuses on scaling up and financing these start-up firms through network building and internationalization. Her role as an advisor to the start-ups at Ryerson’s University Digital Media Zone and Center for Urban Energy allows others to benefit directly from her work.

She is also the author of three books, including Cliques and Capitalism: A Modern Networked Theory of the Firm, which suggests a new sustainable model for firms and improved corporate governance. It won an Academy of Management, Organizations & Environment Division, book award.
