The workshop will run for 2 days and will take place on June 11-12, 2020 in Barcelona.

Entrepreneurship is making a dramatic comeback in economics and management as a wellspring of industrial dynamism, innovation, and wealth creation. Despite early contributions by scholars such as Joseph Schumpeter, Frank Knight, or William Baumol, entrepreneurship has only recently surfaced as a full-fledged field in economics and management. Researchers, policy makers, and managers alike seek to uncover the economic incentives and personal motivations that affect entrepreneurial behavior in new ventures or established organizations; venture capitalists and corporations increasingly supply new ventures with private equity, which acts as a core driver of business dynamism and long-term growth.

The workshop will run for one day and a half and will feature a keynote address (TBC) and ten to twelve papers, including invited presentations. Presentations will last about one hour, including comments from a discussant and the audience. We welcome empirical and theoretical submissions at the cutting edge of entrepreneurship from both experienced researchers and promising young scholars in the field. Relevant topics include, but are not limited to: new venture creation, dynamics of entrepreneurial careers, start-up strategy, entrepreneurial human capital, entrepreneurial finance, venture capital, corporate entrepreneurship, institutions and entrepreneurship.
