We cordially invite you to participate in the PDW on " Small Town Entrepreneurial Ecosystems "at the Academy of Management Annual Meeting 2021 on Sunday, August 1st, 2021, 12:00 PM - 14:00 PM (EDT).
Virtual session type: Synchronous Live Presenter

In this Professional Development Workshop (PDW), we will explore the topic of entrepreneurship and small business in small towns and discuss what it is, what it does, where it comes from, who has it, plus how and why it does and does not work. Furthermore, we will also investigate how established methods of research can be augmented with emerging technologies, such as smart-phone-enabled experience sampling methods to facilitate a deeper examination of questions around small businesses and entrepreneurship in small towns. In this PDW, the goal is to collaboratively identify unanswered and hard to answer questions regarding small town entrepreneurial ecosystems and "main street" small businesses, which will have growing practical relevance in the post Covid-19 pandemic era. Thus, in a spirit of urgency and inclusiveness, we explicitly do not set an upper population limit for a "small town", as this dynamic will also be discussed and debated. In this creative, collaborative, and interactive session, participants will identify areas of mutual interest in order to develop research initiatives and projects with both academic and practical implications.
