    A 2017 article on the Wall Street Journal highlighted the various problems faced by STEM students when studying entrepreneurship. The article proposed that instead of studying traditional chief executives, STEM entrepreneurship classes should focus on tech start-ups led by chief executives with a STEM background. This project will address this critical issue of STEM case study availability for entrepreneurship educators and students.  The Call for Submissions might include case studies relating to any of the following topics:

    • Science-related enterprises
    • Biotech enterprises
    • Technology-related enterprises
    • Civil engineering-related enterprises
    • Mechanical engineering related enterprises
    • Electrical engineering-related enterprises
    • Aeronautical engineering-related enterprises
    • Mathematics-related enterprises
    • Statistics-related enterprises
    • Manufacturing
    • App development
    • University spin-out enterprises
    • Research development

    The book will consist of a broad variety of cases to ensure a balance relating to gender, nationality, stage of business development, nature of the problem being addressed and type of business. The ambition of the book is to ensure that educators and students of different backgrounds will have access to case studies that will be of relevance to their program.
