• Plenary Session at AOM: Entrepreneurship in 2030

    (posted on behalf of Sarah L. Jack, Program Chair)

    For entrepreneurship scholars, understanding what the practice of entrepreneurship looks like, not only in the present but also for the future, is important. What might the future of entrepreneurship as a practice look like? How might this impact how we carry out research and teaching? The Entrepreneurship Division will host a virtual Plenary Session at this year’s AOM Annual Meeting to discuss and debate what the year 2030 might hold.

    We are delighted to welcome Professors Johan Wiklund and Marco van Gelderen to share initial findings from their recent study with Professor Jeff McMullen, titled “Entrepreneurship in 2030.” The two-round Delphi study they conducted involved the input of over 250 editorial board members from the Journal of Business Venturing and Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice.

    They will be joined by Division members who represent the future of entrepreneurship, including Dr. Anna Long (California State University San Bernardino, USA) and doctoral students Afua Owusu-Kwarteng (Recirculate, Lancaster University in Ghana and UK) and Ketan Goswami (Ivey Business School, Canada). Their discussion will be followed by a Q&A session, where Professors Wiklund and van Gelderen will field questions from the broader audience.

    Please join us for the ENT Division’s virtual Plenary Session (in real time) on Monday, August 10, 2020 at 12 noon (NY/EST). We look forward to seeing you soon.
