Track K

Date: Sunday, October 4, 2015

Track X

Time: 11:15 – 12:30

Interest Group Panel

Room: Governor's Square 16


Session Chair:

  • Jeffrey York, University of Colorado Boulder

Panelists:

The possibility that entrepreneurs could solve many of our environmental challenges through the introduction of new environmentally-benign products and services has attracted attention from many different quarters; so much so that Hall, Daneke, & Lenox (2010) caution against what they refer to as the “panacea hypothesis” -- the supposition that entrepreneurship is a solution to all of our environmental problems. As they observe, much more work needs to be done to understand the potential and limits of environmental entrepreneurship. The aim of this panel it to bring together interested researchers to discuss this emerging area of interest. Panelists and the audience will address multiple topics including: the relationship between environmental entrepreneurship and opportunities; how entrepreneurs may act as complements/substitutes to government and incumbent firm efforts to address environmental degradation; what theories may apply to environmental entrepreneurship; and how environmental entrepreneurs may represent a differentiated area for scholarship.
