The 2021 Mid-winter Meeting of the Entrepreneurship Division was hosted this January by the Entrepreneurship Division Chair, Peter Klein of Baylor University. For the first time in Division history, the Mid-winter Meeting was held in a completely remote format.
Participating in this year’s Mid-winter Meeting were members of the Entrepreneurship Division’s leadership spanning the globe from Canada, Denmark, France, Norway, Singapore, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the USA.
Throughout the meeting, the leadership focused on planning the Division’s activities and events for 2021 virtual Academy of Management Conference including, in part, planning high-quality virtual consortia events and considering enriching online social experiences for Division members.
A number of special topics were emphasized at this year’s meeting. Notable special topics centered on the revision of the Division’s Domain Statement, Division Policy Manual revisions, and fundraising in the COVID-19 and post-COVID-19 world.
Other topics that received attention at the 2021 Mid-winter Meeting included: 1) preparations associated with the Division’s upcoming 5-year review, 2) ways to provide enhanced value to the membership year-round, and 3) the continuation of the Division’s mentorship program.
Despite its unusual modality, the 2021 Entrepreneurship Division Mid-winter Meeting was a productive event for the Division’s leadership, all of whom thank Division Chair, Peter Klein, for organizing and hosting the event, and for ensuring it ran smoothly.
