This Interest Group focuses on entrepreneurial behavior both in new ventures and established organizations. Its purpose is to help create useful knowledge on effective entrepreneurial strategies. Some of the important questions that it seeks to address include: How can we strengthen the theorizing on entrepreneurial activity? How does a focus on innovation and entrepreneurship differ from other theories on competitive advantage? What are the appropriate research methods for a scientific study of the entrepreneurial process? What is the role of strategy in a new venture firm and how does it differ from that in an established firm?
Our IG has sponsored three workshops on “Entrepreneurship in Emerging Economies and the Role of Indigenous Theory,” “Junior Faculty Professional Development Workshop,” and “The Process of Publishing Strategy Research” on Saturday, Oct 19. If you have already registered for these workshops, we look forward to seeing you there. Please note that the Junior Faculty Professional Development Workshop required an application and it is now closed. The other two workshops requested pre-registration, and if you did not register, walk-ins are welcome as space is available.
