    2023 Entrepreneurship Division Plenary Agenda: "Balancing Rigor and Relevance: Bridging Academia and Practice in Entrepreneurship Research"

    In the field of entrepreneurship, the importance of conducting research that is both rigorous and relevant to practice cannot be overstated. As we navigate an ever-changing, technology-driven, economic landscape, entrepreneurship scholars are faced with the crucial task of delivering research that is impactful and practically relevant. This not only contributes to the academic body of knowledge but also has tangible effects on entrepreneurship practices, thereby fostering innovation, economic growth, and societal development.

    It is in this context that we are thrilled to announce the Entrepreneurship Division’s Plenary Session on "Balancing Rigor and Relevance: Bridging Academia and Practice in Entrepreneurship Research." The event aims to initiate dialogue and debate on how to create a balance between these two crucial elements of entrepreneurship scholarship.

    We are honored to host an esteemed panel for the seminar: Professor David Deeds (Schulze Endowed Chair in Entrepreneurship and Director of the Morrison Center at the University of St. Thomas Opus College of Business, USA), Professor Vishal Gupta (The University of Alabama, USA), Professor Pablo Muñoz (the Durham University Business School, UK), and Professor Maija Renko (Coleman Chair of Entrepreneurship at DePaul University, USA). The insights, experience, and diverse perspectives our panelists bring make this an invaluable opportunity to advance our understanding on how we can engage with practice through our research.

    Please join us for the ENT Division’s virtual Plenary Session (in real time) on Monday, August 7th, 2023, from 11:00AM-12:30PM (in the Hynes Convention Centre, Boston). We eagerly look forward to your participation!
