    The Entrepreneurship and Strategy Interest Group (E&S IG) is pleased to invite applications from PhD students to its first 'Pitch Your Entrepreneurship Doctoral Research' event to be held virtually and synchronously.  

    When: March 18, 2021  from 11:00am to 12:15pm EDT (UTC -4)
    Application deadline: Feb 26, 2021 by 11:59pm EST (UTC -5)

    Who should apply: We welcome applications from doctoral students with research interests in the Entrepreneurship and Strategy fields at any stage of their PhD program. Preference may be given to doctoral candidates at later stages of their PhD program.  SMS membership is not required. 

    Description:  The PhD Representatives for the E&S IG are pleased to bring you a virtual research elevator pitch event. This recurrent event serves as an opportunity for PhD students interested in E&S-related topics to pitch their research interests to a panel of E&S scholars and receive their feedback. In doing so, students can better prepare for job markets where they need to pitch their research interests to potential employers. This event will be held in a closed, small group (10 participating students) to create a productive but relaxed environment for participants. We will start with practice pitches to peer students in breakout rooms and reconvene as a group for the formal pitch session.  

    Panelists include two faculty members and two PhD students who have recently gone through the job market process. After a 2-min pitch of your research, you will receive 4-minutes of feedback from one faculty and one student panelist.  

    Potential Faculty Panelists: Scholars whose research centers on E&S areas and the leadership team of the IG will serve as primary panelists. Potential faculty panelists include:  

    • Mahka Moeen, University of North Carolina  
    • Pinar Ozcan, Oxford University 
    • Elena Kulchina, North Carolina State University 

    Application process:  To apply, please complete the following survey on SurveyMonkey

     

    The organizers of the event are E&S PhD Representatives: Ouafaa Hmaddi (Univ. of Oregon), CJ Rhee (HKUST), Anna Szerb (INSEAD), and Kyungsoo Kim (UNC). For any questions, please email the organizers at: sms.research.elevator.pitch@gmail.com or by contacting the SMS Executive Office at sms@strategicmanagement.net

    We look forward to welcoming you to this event!
