Entrepreneurial Teams Workshop 2017

2nd Developmental Workshop on
Entrepreneurial Teams and
Collective Entrepreneurship Research

18 September, 2017
IÉSEG School of Management
Paris-La Défense Campus, France

The purpose of this workshop is twofold.

First, it aims at creating an international community of researchers interested in the topics of entrepreneurial teams and collective entrepreneurship more generally. Second, it has a developmental objective, i.e. papers will be thoroughly reviewed and discussed by the peers in order to advance them on the path of publication.

We thus welcome original research but also papers that have been presented before (or are scheduled to be) but that have not been submitted to an academic journal yet. For these reasons, this workshop will be limited to a small number of people in order to create the best conditions for constructive interaction. Each participant will be asked to review the work of two others. Participants who are not presenting may be allowed to register depending on space availability.
