Dedoose in the Field: Geography – Ben Spigel


Unraveling the Importance of Entrepreneurial Ecosystems with Qualitative Research 

Ben Spigel HeadshotBen Spigel is a user in the field of Geography, currently using Dedoose to finish off his dissertation at the University of Toronto. Ben came to us after using other programs such as Nvivo and decided to try Dedoose. He was a bit skeptical about us at first, but after having his suggestions heard and put into action by the Dedoose team, he has become one of our most vocal and supportive users. In fact, when we posted about our conference schedule this year and asked for suggestions on additional conferences, Ben recommended that we attend the Association of American Geographers Annual Meeting We checked it out and liked what we saw. And now, we get to meet Ben in person in Los Angeles at this AAG conference next week. We could not be more honored to have him as a dedicated user for the past two years and we are excited to share his research with the rest of our user community.
