Abstract (english): 
Building on the notion of homophily, we theorize that hierarchical similarity leads to an idea evaluation bias. We test our prediction with a dataset from an intra-organizational idea crowdfunding contest. As theorized, ideas are overvalued (undervalued) when evaluator and creator are hierarchically similar (distant). Novelty of ideas amplifies this effect.
