Furthermore, he is a managing director of the Augsburg Center for Entrepreneurship (ACE), a research fellow of the Institute for Small and Medium-sized Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Research (ifm) at the University of Mannheim, and an associated member of the Digital Transformation Research Center at the University of Goettingen.

In his research he addresses topics surrounding digitalization. Startups, business models and innovation and transformation processes, as well as their financing via crowdfunding platforms, are in the center of his work. Based on the results, he develops theoretical contributions and derives not only scientific but also practical implications for managers, founders, investors and institutional organisations and supporters of the startup scene.

Dennis Steininger studied at the University of Mannheim, where he earned a Diplom-Kaufmann, and at London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). The main focus of his studies was on information systems, leadership, organizational behavior and design.

He also completed numerous courses on theory and research methods in the context of his PhD training at the Center for Doctoral Studies in Business (CDSB). This center belongs to the Graduate School of Economic & Social Sciences (GESS) of the University of Mannheim, which is funded within the Initiative of Excellence of the German federal government. Her received his doctoral degree in Business from the University of Mannheim with the dissertation: Digital Entrepreneurship: Definitions, Business Models, and Network Externalities.

Dennis Steininger is a serial entrepreneur and has founded three companies starting in high school. The largest company was sold in 2007 to complete his studies. He founded SteiningerGroup as an umbrella for his entrepreneurial activities thereafter. Since then he has been a consultant for several major companies (e.g., Siemens) but also SMEs in the areas of strategy, digitalization, and M&A.

From 2008 to 2010 he was a working student and 2010 to 2013 he was a research assistant of Prof. Dr. Daniel Veit, initially at the Dieter Schwarz Endowed Chair for Business Administration, E-Business und E-Government of the University of Mannheim and since 2013 at the chair of Information Systems and Management of the University of Augsburg. From 2013-2015 he was also a research assistant and the Mannheim Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation (MCEI) at the Institute for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (ifm).

Over the last years Dennis Steininger has published several articles in leading academic journals ( e.g., Journal of Management Information Systems, Electronic Markets) and in the proceedings of leading conferences (e.g., European Conference on Information Systems, ECIS).

Above that he has frequently been serving as a reviewer for leading journals of the field (e.g., Journal of Management Information Systems (JMIS), European Journal of Information Systems (EJIS), Journal of Business Economics (ZfB)). In the context of the ECIS 2013 he chaired the „Workshop on the Digitization in Business Models and Entrepreneurship“.

He taught numerous courses and seminars at the intersection of information systems and entrepreneurship as a research assistant at the Universities of Augsburg and Mannheim as well as during several teaching assignments and guest lectures at other schools (e.g., MBA program of the  Mannheim Business School, Summer School of the University of Mannheim, Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University Mannheim).
