Entrepreneurship Research, Teaching, Service, and Practice

Entrepreneurship Conference, Symposium for Scholars & Students

Academics and students focused on entrepreneurship research love to exchange ideas and trade opinions, preferably at a conference or – in COVID times – online. This happens through seminars, webinars, symposia, and colloquia, many of which have a global flavor.

Some of these are organized by industry associations such as the USASBE while others are organized by academic institutions such as Babson College. Some of them have been held for decades while others are relatively new – thus offering researchers an interesting mix of entrepreneurship outlets to choose from. Some emphaize topics related to education and learning, relevant theories, and best practices in measuring and improving the effectiveness of entrepreneurship pedadogy. Others prefer to stay focused on academic research in entrepreneurship – both empirical and theoretical. 

Notably, many an entrepreneurship conference has sessions or workshops specifically for doctoral students who wish to get feedback on the dissertation process, thesis topics and progress, managing the peer-review publication journey, etc. Moreover, each conference chooses an important and topical theme that ties together the various panels, presentations, and keynote speeches.

Below is a list of such events for entrepreneurship scholars to network, interact, and build relationships. To suggest any relevant event, please share the name via Twitter or LinkedIn. Thanks!
