  • AOM ENT Plenary Session 2022

    (posted on behalf of @Jon Carr)
    The Entrepreneurship Division Hybrid Program is ready to be launched! We are very excited to offer a Plenary Session that we feel will be incredibly thought-provoking for our Division members. The Plenary is entitled “Emerging Research Themes in Entrepreneurship Research: A Conversation with Entrepreneurship Emerging Scholars.” The Plenary Session will be offered on Tuesday morning, August 9th, from 10:00-11:30 in the Hyatt Regency Seattle (Elwha A).
    For the last several years, the Entrepreneurship Division has recognized several Emerging Scholars as part of our Division Program. These Emerging Scholars have been recognized for their solid theoretical and empirical research scholarship, and their commitment to our division and the growth of our field. Now is the perfect time to have a conversation with some of these scholars—to have them share their own perspectives on the state of the field, and more importantly to have a conversation about where we are going. Our panel will explore new research opportunities and trends and provide the audience with a chance to ask questions and share their own perspectives. Please join us for a spirited and lively conversation with these research scholars! 

    Our participants include: 
    • Jon C. Carr, NC State University, 2022 Program Chair
    • Alex Kier, Washington State University
    • Eric Zhao, Indiana University
    • Matthew Grimes, London Business School 
    • Regan Stevenson, Indiana University

    Our hope is that other Emerging Scholars will also be able to join in the conversation. We hope to see you for this important session!
