    Entrepreneurship among: Veterans, Minorities, Women, Immigrants, Refugees
    We invite scholars, students and practitioners to submit completed papers, 'works in progress', and panel proposals for the Transitional Entrepreneurship colloquium to be held on June 17th and 18th, 2022. The colloquium is the second of a series of annual colloquia supported by a grant from the E. M. Kauffman Foundation. Due to COVID-19, the 2022 edition of the colloquium will be in hybrid format.
    A special issue of New England Journal of Entrepreneurship will be published based on the conference theme.
    Transitional Entrepreneurship
    Transitional entrepreneurship focuses on issues facing entrepreneurs from communities that face significant adversity in launching ventures, and for whom the path involves substantive life transitions. We focus on entrepreneurs from veterans, minorities, immigrants, refugees, women, historically marginalized groups, and economically distressed communities. As research on transitional entrepreneurs is at an early stage, we welcome papers from multiple perspectives, methodologies, regions and themes, with implications for theory, practice and policy.
    Colloquium Mission
    Ø  Bring together a diverse community of scholars, practitioners and policy makers interested in entrepreneurship among transitional communities
    Ø  Generate and disseminate a body of knowledge that motivates relevant future research projects and actionable ideas in transitional entrepreneurship
    Ø  Panel discussions: Leading scholars who share their work and provide thought provoking ideas and directions for future research in transitional entrepreneurship.
    Ø  Paper sessions: Offer scholars an opportunity to present their research and receive feedback from attendees.
    Ø  Case study sessions: Transitional entrepreneurs and mentors sharing their experiences.
    Ø  Networking and Meet the Editors sessions
