    #14660 Professional Development Workshop


    Friday August 9th 2024, 3pm – 5pm

    Sheraton Grand Chicago: Ohio.

    Are you a scholar studying cognition within the context of entrepreneurship? Are you looking for inspiration from recent research trends in the area? And are you looking for ways to connect with other researchers with similar interests? The Entrepreneurial Cognition PDW returns for a fifth and final consecutive year. The PDW is conducted in two parts - first a series of Pecha Kucha-style paper presentations followed by a best paper award ceremony, and then a moderated panel discussion with senior scholars and editors. Everything is followed by a reception.

    Part 1 (60 min.)

    Pecha Kucha Presentations by shortlisted candidates for the

    Kauffman Best Paper Awards in Entrepreneurial Cognition

    Out of many submissions, an award committee has shortlisted 10 papers for short presentations. The concept of a Pecha Kucha refers to an innovative and fast-paced presentation format commonly used to surface and showcase new ideas. Half of the presentations are student-led papers, half are faculty-led. During the PDW, each participant will present for 5 minutes with 10 slides, timed to automatically switch between slides after 30 seconds. After a short Q&A and deliberation, this part of the PDW will conclude with closing remarks, as well as awards of $1000 each for the best student-led and faculty-led papers.

    The student-led presentations are (in random order):
