Early-Career Consortium

Call for Applicants

The Entrepreneurship Division will sponsor an Early Career Development Consortium (ECDC) during the 2019 Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management in Boston, MA. This consortium is specifically designed to meet the needs of those scholars who are early in their career such as tenure-track assistant professors and ABD's. The Consortium will take place on Friday, August 9 from 1:00-5:00 pm. Following the consortium, there will be a joint reception with participants from the entrepreneurship doctoral consortium. Admitted applicants are expected to participate in the entire day's program.

Leading entrepreneurship scholars will provide practical advice to help early-stage academics manage the pre-tenure phase of their career. Specific topics include building a successful research pipeline, navigating the publication process, and developing a reputation within a given field. The session will be highly interactive (small group discussions, personalized Q&A, etc.) involving a number of different mentors including Dean Shepherd (University of Notre Dame), Greg Fisher (Indiana University), Laura Huang (Harvard University), Alex McKelvie (Syracuse University), Rob Mitchell (Colorado State University), Rob Nason (Concordia University), Larry Plummer (Western University), Maija Renko (University of Illinois, Chicago), Ute Stephan (King’s College London), Siri Terjesen (American University), Dave Williams (University of Tennessee), Trent Williams (Indiana University), and Jeff York (University of Colorado, Boulder).

This year's consortium is chaired by Geoff Kistruck (York University) and Desiree Pacheco (Portland State University).  The consortium will be limited to 30 participants and qualified applicants will be admitted on a first come basis.

Applications are currently being accepted for the 2019 AOM Entrepreneurship Early Career Consortium. To apply, send the following items as email attachments to Geoff Kistruck (gkistruck@schulich.yorku.ca) with "ECDC" in the subject line.

  1. A short (3-5 sentences) biographical sketch, which we can distribute to all participants.
