Call for Proposals - 2020 Deshpande Symposium

  • 1.  Call for Proposals - 2020 Deshpande Symposium

    Entrepreneurship Community:
    I would like to encourage you to participate in the 9th Annual Deshpande Symposium, which will take place June 10-12, 2019 in Cleveland OH. Panel proposals are being accepted until February 15, 2020
    The Deshpande Symposium conference sessions are structured around panel presentations that explore common themes. All submissions should clearly identify which of the three conference tracks they align with:
    • Entrepreneurship in the Curriculum
    • University Research Commercialization and Startups
    • Developing Entrepreneurial Universities, Culture & Ecosystems
    Strong preference will be given to full panel proposals that include an identified panel moderator (usually the proposal submitter) and speakers / presentations from multiple institutions discussing their perspective / experience on the chosen panel topic. For individual presentation proposals, we will do our best to match you to the most appropriate panel based on your area of interest and panel availability.
    You can find more information here (as well as a link to the panel proposal submission form):

    Please let me know if you have any questions.
