    The Ted Rogers School of Management at Ryerson University is pleased to invite you to the 39th annual Canadian Council for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (CCSBE) conference from October 16 - 17th, 2020.  This year's conference will be held virtually.

    Join us as we meet with Canadian and international leaders and change-makers promoting and supporting entrepreneurship at the 2020 CCSBE Conference - and be part of the conversation.

    As we look to re-open our economies, there's never been a more critical time to convene, share our research and best practices and dialogue on how we advance entrepreneurship in light of the challenges introduced because of Covid-19.

    The conference focuses on the diverse approaches to advancing entrepreneurship across societal sectors and countries and adopts a comparative and international perspective in addressing traditional topics in entrepreneurship and innovation. Researchers, educators, entrepreneurs, administrators, students, policy makers and all interested in advancing entrepreneurship are invited to participate in this great gathering. We invite proposals for academic papers, professional workshop sessions and panel discussions in all fields related to entrepreneurship, especially on the following topics:

    • Supporting small business and entrepreneurship during and post Covid-19
    • Entrepreneurship education and pedagogy
    • Comparing entrepreneurship processes across nations
    • National culture and entrepreneurship
    • Diversity within entrepreneurship (e.g., women, immigrants, aboriginal peoples, visible minorities, persons with disability, youth and seniors)
    • Social innovation and entrepreneurship
    • Entrepreneurship in low income or emerging markets
    • International and transnational entrepreneurship
    • Technological innovation to bridge rural-urban divides
    • The role of entrepreneurship in economic development
    • Incubators and accelerators
    • The role of government promoting SMEs and entrepreneurship
    • University based new ventures and student engagement
    • Sustainable entrepreneurship and innovation with a focus on solving environmental issues
    • AI and other technology-based venturing

    While we are particularly interested in submissions that relate to the above topics, papers and workshop proposals on any aspect of entrepreneurship are welcome.
