Early-Career Consortium

Consortium Report - 2019

The Entrepreneurship Division Early Career Consortium was held on the afternoon of August 9th at the Academy of Management meeting in Boston. The consortium was coordinated by Geoff Kistruck (York University) and Desiree Pacheco (Portland State University).

This year, there were 41 applicants and 26 were accepted into the ENT division early career consortium, with early-career faculty attending from Africa, Asia, Australasia, Europe, North America, and South America.

The consortium was designed to help early-career scholars think through the challenges they are likely to face as assistant professors seeking to earn tenure. Topics included how to select good research questions, how to build a ‘manageable’ pipeline, and how to become a great reviewer. The primary format was a series of rotating small-group discussions, augmented by a keynote presentation and a round of ‘mentor jeopardy’. The attendees had the opportunity to engage with and learn from established scholars including Greg Fisher, Laura Huang, Alex McKelvie, Jeff McMullen, Rob Mitchell, Rob Nason, Larry Plummer, Maija Renko, Dean Shepherd, Ute Stephan, Siri Terjesen, Dave Williams, Trent Williams, Jeff York

Overall, attendees indicated that they very much enjoyed the day!
