Theme: Technology Entrepreneurship

We invite authors to submit papers to our research symposium, a lively forum for the exchange of ideas among scholars interested in technology entrepreneurship. The 2011 conference will be held at the University of Washington Seattle Campus, in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, a spectacular setting at this time of year.

Papers focusing on entrepreneurship and innovation in technology-based settings will be given preference. In addition to our broad focus on technology entrepreneurship, for 2011 we especially encourage submissions from authors interested in entrepreneurship that promotes commercializes clean technologies, and/or advances social welfare.

We expect to host an intimate conference of 40+ leading scholars from around the world. The conference steering committee invites the submission of unpublished working papers that advance the state of knowledge on the above topics. Conference registration and meals are complementary. A doctoral consortium sponsored by the Kauffman Foundation will precede the conference on Wednesday, September 7, 2011.

The DEADLINE for submitting papers is Wednesday June 1, 2011.
