The Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (University of Washington), the Lloyd Greif Center of Entrepreneurial Studies (USC), the Stanford Technology Ventures Program (Stanford University), and the Lundquist Center for Entrepreneurship (University of Oregon) are sponsoring the 4th West Coast Research Symposium on Technology Entrepreneurship on September 8 and 9, 2006.
A one-day Doctoral Student Workshop will be held prior to the research symposium, with financial support provided by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.
Theme: Doctoral Student Workshop on Technology Entrepreneurship
Location: University of Washington
Date: 7th September 2006 (main conference held September 8-9)
We invite doctoral students to submit applications to attend this workshop. Sessions will focus on technology entrepreneurship, with an emphasis on contemporary work in the field.  The workshop will be led by Kathy Eisenhardt, Stanford Univ.; Raghu Garud, Penn State Univ.; Suresh Kotha, Univ. of Washington; Alan Meyer, Univ. of Oregon; and Nandini Rajagopalan, Univ. of Southern California.
The workshop aspires to provide an intellectually stimulating experience, map the theoretical domain of technology entrepreneurship, and build community. Students will read several articles on entrepreneurship and come prepared to discuss them.  Workshop participants will have opportunities to present their own research interests, to interact with each other, and to get acquainted with faculty members.
Students selected for the workshop will be invited to attend the two-day research symposium that follows, which will showcase cutting-edge work by technology entrepreneurship researchers from the Northwest and around the country.
Applicants focusing on the nexus of technology and entrepreneurship will be given preference.  Each attendee will be provided with a $300 travel stipend, as well as all meals and 3 nights lodging (double occupancy).
The location is the beautiful Pacific Northwest, a spectacular setting at this time of year. This is a great opportunity for doctoral students to learn from leading scholars and contemporary work in the field.
