CFP – Small Business and Entrepreneurship Conference – Liverpool – Nov 3-6, 2009

Call for Papers: 32nd ISBE Conference, Liverpool, UK, 3rd -6th November 2009

This year, the Institute for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (ISBE) will host their annual research conference in Liverpool, from 3rd – 6th November. ISBE is the UK’s premier network for those involved in the advancement of small business and entrepreneurship research, education and practice. Our annual conference is now Britain’s leading forum for promoting, disseminating and debating contemporary issues in small business and entrepreneurship research.

We invite you to join us this November to experience Liverpool’s vibrant entrepreneurial and community spirit, and witness the fantastic scale of local regeneration which helped win Liverpool the title of “European Capital of Culture” in 2008. The NOVAS Contemporary Urban Centre (this year’s conference venue) is right in the heart of Liverpool’s Independent Arts Quarter and is a creative entrepreneurial case study in its own right.

The conference website is now open for paper submissions across a range of different entrepreneurship and business management tracks. Case Studies platforming real life entrepreneurs and best practice examples are also welcome. As part of our Celebration of three decades of excellence in entrepreneurship research, accepted papers will also be considered for a range of international journal and book publication opportunities.
