    Submission Deadline: Tuesday 31 March 2020


    The 4th INSEAD Doriot Entrepreneurship Conference (IDEC)

    5-6 June 2020, Singapore


    Entrepreneurship has become a very active research topic in organization theory and strategy, spurred by interest in the birth of new industries, the rejuvenation of existing industries through new technologies or markets, new ways of organizing as well as the dynamics of entry in existing industries. Much research on entrepreneurship addresses a broad theoretical agenda that is also relevant to organization theorists and strategists, such as its insights on new organizational populations; change and differentiation in institutions; the reorganization of industries through networks and specialization; organizational and knowledge contexts and transition into entrepreneurship; effectiveness of new venture strategies and organization design approaches and so forth. It is the goal of IDEC to stimulate further research in these and related areas.


    Keynotes will be given by Olav Sorenson (Yale) and Heli Wang (SMU). We will invite discussants for our sessions from a broad range of schools including INSEAD.  


    We are seeking high quality papers employing diverse theoretical perspectives and methods, exploring a broad range of entrepreneurial phenomenon. Examples include intra-organizational phenomena such as the assembly of existing inventions and ideas for commercialization to generate internal ventures or spin-offs. Organizational boundary phenomena include organizing for new business development from own knowledge stock versus developing and relying on external capabilities. Organizational phenomena include how ventures come to structure the niches they occupy and adapt to other ventures. Entrepreneur phenomena include formation and development of an identity for the venture.
