    We invite you to join our PDW to contribute to and learn from a growing community of scholars  investigating entrepreneurship's effect on society.

    Entrepreneurship plays a critical role in society. Thus far, the academic focus on new ventures focused almost exclusively on how society affects entrepreneurship (i.e., amount and type of entrepreneurship, entrepreneurial opportunities, etc.) to include entrepreneurship's contribution to socio-economic development. Yet, a new perspective and community of scholars has emerged in a new stream of research to investigate how entrepreneurship transforms and affects society - reversing the arrow. The PDW will be organized in three parts: 

    Part I, 9:00 AM - 10:00 PM PT (Open to all participants)

    The first part of the PDW will be open to all AoM participants and will feature presentations by the invited panellists. They will showcase and explain the theoretical directions that this community is investigating: Gender and race in an entrepreneurial society, work and inequality in an entrepreneurial society, agency and futures in an entrepreneurial society, ideologies in an entrepreneurial society, power and systems change in an entrepreneurial society. Finally, we will present some of the new methodological perspectives to study an entrepreneurial society. The presentations by the panellists will be followed by a Q&A session with the audience.

    Part II, 10:00 – 11:00 PM PT 

    Following the panel discussion, we will PDW Participants will self-select to join one of the six theoretical perspectives in targeted discussion tables, each led by key scholars. Each table will share its insights to end the session.

    Please contact Robert Eberhart (eberhart@stanford.edu) or Tim Weis  (timweiss@imperial.ac.uk ) with any questions about the PDW or the application process.
