  • 1.  Call for Papers, INSEAD Doriot Entrepreneurship Conference

    Posted 01-13-2022 06:43


    Submission Deadline: Tuesday 15 February 2022 


    The 4th INSEAD Doriot Entrepreneurship Conference (IDEC) 

     17th and 18th June 2022, Fontainebleau 



    Entrepreneurship has become a very active research topic in organization theory and strategy, spurred by interest in the birth of new industries, the rejuvenation of existing industries through new technologies or markets, new ways of organizing as well as the dynamics of entry in existing industries. Much research on entrepreneurship addresses a broad theoretical agenda that is also relevant to organization theorists and strategists, such as its insights on new organizational populations; change and differentiation in institutions; the reorganization of industries through networks and specialization; organizational and knowledge contexts and transition into entrepreneurship; effectiveness of new venture strategies and organization design approaches and so forth. It is the goal of IDEC to stimulate further research in these and related areas. 


    The confirmed participants include Kathy Eisenhardt (Stanford University), Alfonso Gambardella (Bocconi University), Oliver Alexy (Technical University of Munich), Thomas Astebro (HEC Paris), Susan Cohen (University of Georgia), Nel Dutt (Bocconi University), Chuck Eesley (Stanford University), Gary Dushnitsky (London Business School), Martin Kilduff (University College London), and Chris Rider (University of Michigan). 


    We are seeking high quality papers employing diverse theoretical perspectives and methods, exploring a broad range of entrepreneurial phenomena. Examples include intra-organizational phenomena such as the assembly of existing inventions and ideas for commercialization to generate internal ventures or spin-offs. Organizational boundary phenomena include organizing for new business development from own knowledge stock versus developing and relying on external capabilities. Organizational phenomena include how ventures come to structure the niches they occupy and adapt to other ventures. Entrepreneurial phenomena include formation and development of an identity for the venture. Special consideration will be given to proposals focusing on topics such as:  

    a) gender and entrepreneurship  

    b) entrepreneurship in emerging economies  

    c) experiments in entrepreneurship.
