Entrepreneurship & Strategy Junior Faculty Research Workshop

Saturday, September 20th
9:00 – 16:00

The Entrepreneurship & Strategy Interest Group (IG) is pleased to offer a Junior Faculty Workshop in Madrid, Spain, from 9:00 to 16:00 on September 20, 2014. The workshop is part of the pre-conference program for the Strategic Management Society (SMS) Annual International Conference and is open to all conference registrants. Thanks to the generous support provided by the Kauffman Foundation, individuals selected to participate in the workshop will be reimbursed for their registration or travel and accommodation expenses up to $750. Only one author per paper will be eligible to receive this reimbursement.

We invite authors to submit papers that relate to the various aspects of entrepreneurship. In order to participate, you must submit a "work-in-progress" on an entrepreneurship-related topic. Intersections of entrepreneurship with strategy and other disciplines (e.g., management, economics, psychology, sociology) are also welcome.

Accepted working papers and researchers will then be grouped into panels. Panels will be developed based on convergent interests and/or overlap among the submitted proposals. Each panel will be matched with a senior mentor who shares an interest in the topic. The working papers will be circulated in advance among members of a panel, and prior to the workshop, participants in each panel will be expected to prepare written comments and feedback on the other working papers in their panel.

At the workshop, the goal of each panel will be to exchange constructive criticism and feedback, extract critical themes from the working papers, identify conceptual foundations, and evaluate alternative research strategies. The various panel discussions will be a springboard for critical thought and, ideally, for collaborative relationships.

Submission Guidelines:

To qualify for participation, you have to (1) be a registered attendee of the 2014 Strategic Management Society Annual Conference in Madrid, and (2) have already completed your dissertation. Preference will be given to submitting authors who are in the first six years of their academic career.
