    If you have an idea for a study related to the challenges, motivations, and opportunities facing entrepreneurs who transition to organizational employment, please consider submitting a proposal for a pre-AOM paper development workshop in conjunction with a special issue of Small Business Economics (SBEJ). During the workshop, members of the special issue editorial team (Jeffrey Hornsby, Dan Hsu, Rob Mitchell, Boris Nikolaev, Maija Renko, and Daniel Bennett) will facilitate in-depth discussion and developmental feedback on your proposals. Please see that attached draft call for papers (CfP) for more information on the special issue. 

    The workshop is sponsored by the Center for Free Enterprise at the University of Louisville and the Institute for Humane Studies and will be held on August 8, 2024, in Chicago, IL, prior to the start of the Academy of Management (AOM) 2024 annual conference.

    The In-Person PDW is open to the entire academic community, including scholars from any discipline, and registration to AOM is not required to participate in the PDW. Selected participants will receive up to two nights lodging, and additional funding to help offset the costs associated with attending the PDW may be available, depending on need. Due to limited funding and the desire to provide detailed feedback, space is limited with preference given to proposals that most closely align with the SI themes identified in the CfP and to PhD students and junior scholars who are likely to benefit the most from receiving feedback and meeting with the editorial team.

    Authors interested in participating in the workshop should submit an extended abstract (max 2 pages, double-spaced, excluding references, figures, and tables), outlying the research question, hypotheses, methods, main findings (if available), and contribution by May 31, 2024 by email to Daniel Bennett (daniel.bennett.2@louisville.edu). Please include "In-Person PDW Application" in the subject line of your email.
