Accompanying the SMS Annual Conference this year will be a one-day conference extension exploring the intersection between strategic human capital and entrepreneurship research. The conference will take place on Wednesday, October 23, 2019 at the University of Wisconsin. There is no need to attend or register for SMS to attend the conference to participate in the extension.

The program includes a series of panel discussions and roundtable activities specifically designed to identify new research questions and introduce new theoretical and empirical perspectives to our work by facilitating cross-disciplinary communication among Strategic Human Capital and Entrepreneurship scholars.

Our panels will be led by a distinguished group of Entrepreneurship and Human Capital scholars, including:
  • Rajshree Agarwal, Rudolph P. Lamone Chair and Professor in Entrepreneurship and Director of the Ed Snider Center for Enterprise and Markets at the University of Maryland
