Workshop Information

Entrepreneurship is playing an important role in the transition underway in emerging economies with the previous decade witnessing tremendous new venture led innovations. These innovations range from new forms of organizing and scaling growth ventures, new opportunities in consolidating fragmented markets & creating new market niches, new ways of organizing social entrepreneurship, to a new social ecology of entrepreneurs. This is hence a particularly appropriate time for a workshop for strategy scholars to examine how these new phenomena can inform theories of strategic entrepreneurship.

The workshop will be breakout group work in round tables – led by discussion table leaders. We will then have a plenary to share and summarize.
