    Do you have an early-stage research idea that you wish to discuss in a friendly environment with other PhD students who have similar research interests? Do you have a cool dataset that you want to explore but you are not sure how? If you do, then please apply to the "Entrepreneurship & Strategy Doctoral Research Lab" series organized by the SMS Entrepreneurship and Strategy (E&S) IG.

    When: May 27, 2021 at 11:00am EDT (UTC  -4) for 90mins 
    Application deadline: May 7, 2021

    Description: The PhD Representatives of the E&S IG are initiating informal forums for doctoral students in E&S areas to discuss early-stage research ideas with other students to create dialogue, receive feedback, and form connections for potential future collaboration. We are not looking for formal paper proposals or polished research questions – the purpose is to share and pressure test ideas with other students who are interested in similar research topics.

    This event is part of the doctoral research event series organized by the SMS E&S IG with a specific focus on early-stage research ideas to be developed further after the Research Lab (for more established research ideas, such as our "Pitch Your Entrepreneurship Doctoral Research" event on the E&S IG Website).

    Who should apply: Doctoral students with research interests in the Entrepreneurship and Strategy fields who have:

    • A broad research question but would like to narrow it down
    • A specific research question but would like to pressure test it with scholars with similar research interests
    • Data that could be interesting to explore but would like to know how
    • An interest in meeting other students to discuss ideas and create relationships for potential future collaboration


    • One-hour Doctoral Research Labs will be organized around a specific research topic in entrepreneurship and strategy
    • In each Doctoral Research Lab, participants may either (1) briefly present their early-stage research ideas and initiate discussion on the topic for further development or (2) introduce interesting datasets to brainstorm how to properly utilize them with other participants
    • Approximately 10 minutes are allocated to each participant (the allotted time may vary based on applications received)
    • By request and availability, we will also invite a junior faculty in the relevant research field
    • Each session will be followed by a 30-minute informal discussion among participants

    The final list of junior faculty participants will be announced at a later date.

    Application process:  To apply, please complete the following application: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/S5SS2ZG

    The organizers of the event are E&S PhD Reps: Ouafaa (Univ. of Oregon), CJ Rhee (HKUST), Anna Szerb (INSEAD), and Kyungsoo Kim (UNC). For any questions, please email the organizers at: sms.research.lab21@gmail.com
