    Dear ENT Division Members, 

    I hope you and your loved ones remain healthy and safe.

    Together with my colleagues from the Division's leadership, it is my great pleasure to invite you to take part in the many exciting PDWs that are set to take place online as part of the 2020 AOM Conference's asynchronous program. These events will take place as a series of recorded videos, presentations, and slides with a discussion feed that can be accessed through the AOM Conference website over the next few weeks. To make your planning easier, here is the list of 10 asynchronous PDWs sponsored by the Division.

    Submission #



    Digital Technologies and Platforms: Reshaping Entrepreneurship, Business Models, and Ecosystem


    Reframing Social Entrepreneurship Research: Embracing a Strategic Perspective


    Fifty Shades of Entrepreneurial Action: Engaging Contextual, Processual and Non-Deliberative Facets


    Rationality in the Entrepreneurship Process: Is Being Rational Actually Rational?


    From Firm to Industry: Bridging Levels of Analysis in Qualitative Research in Entrepreneurship


    Crowdfunding: Broadening our Sight Through Theory-Building


    Making Theoretical Contributions: Our Entrepreneurial Journeys


    In Search of Inclusive Innovation: Emerging Research and Intervention


    Entrepreneur-Led Economic Development: Entrepreneurial Communities Through the Right Eyes


    Transgenerational Entrepreneurship in Family Firms 4.0: Broadening our Sight for the Next Decade


    Please understand that even if the AOM Conference Program list specific dates and times for these events, it does so strictly for programming purposes: registered attendants to the Conference can watch and take part in the academic exchanges at a time of their own choosing, throughout the next few weeks.

    Needless to say, this virtual meeting is a first for all of us – and we all appreciate that the challenges of the current circumstances and conference modes will be different for each of our members. Given our Division members' enthusiasm and entrepreneurial spirit, we expect to see lively discussions and exciting contributions emerge from these asynchronous workshops! 

    Information for logging in onto these asynchronous workshops is available on the AOM Conference website.

    Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Division sponsors, including our Gold sponsor, The Whitman School of Management, Syracuse University, our Silver sponsors, Baylor University, Stockholm School of Economics, and Farmer School of Business, and our Bronze Sponsors, Colorado State University's Institute for Entrepreneurship, Babson College's Blank Center for Entrepreneurship, Texas Tech University, North Carolina State's Entrepreneurship Clinic, the New England Journal of Entrepreneurship, the Centre for Family Enterprise and Ownership, QUT Business School's Australian Centre for Entrepreneurship Research and the Journal of Entrepreneurship and Public Policy.  We are deeply indebted to them.

    With my deep gratitude for your continuous engagement with the Division,
