SIG 03 Entrepreneurship (ENT) Description:

 

The Entrepreneurship SIG aims to develop an intriguing, explorative, reflecting, ongoing, and constructive dialogue among entrepreneurship scholars and practitioners to lead research and to define best practices that are relevant for entrepreneurs in the contemporary world. The Entrepreneurship SIG intends to promote research, debate, collaborations, and networking interests both in individual and in collaborative forms by providing a wide-ranging, engaged, and international focused agora to develop and foster research and practice in the field. The Entrepreneurship SIG focuses on the key European feature – ‘context matters’ – why we try in all activities to promote and stimulate what ‘European’ might mean in any given context and any approach of entrepreneurship research.

ENTREPRENEURSHIP GENERAL TRACK

GT 03_00 Entrepreneurship General Track

The Entrepreneurship SIG supports an ongoing and constructive dialogue among entrepreneurship scholars to conduct research for entrepreneurship theory and practice. This general track features new and emerging research areas as well as classical areas of study in entrepreneurship. In line with our mission – methodological, theoretical and empirical pluralism in entrepreneurship research – we welcome contributions from all areas of entrepreneurship that are not explicitly covered by the other tracks sponsored by the SIG. The General Track includes an innovative sub track on “Entrepreneurial Processes,” referring to the creation and exploitation of  central hubs.

ENTREPRENEURSHIP SIG STANDING TRACKS

ST 03_01 Social Entrepreneurship and Societal Changes

There has been an undeniable “social turn” in businesses and markets that are increasingly absorbing ideas about sustainability, stakeholders’ interests and social enterprise models. This track calls for papers investigating the impact of social and environmental concerns in the strategies of new ventures or existing ones, and in the formation of social enterprises and other forms of social movements in business. On the other hand, we welcome as well papers that investigate the reverse relation i.e. the influence of entrepreneurial activities on institutional, environmental and societal contexts.

ST 03_02 Academic Entrepreneurship and the Entrepreneurial University

The entrepreneurial university emphasizes an understanding of the university as an economic institution designed for the creation and delivery of economic value. With the creation of value within the transfer process, the university faces with new challenges. Academic entrepreneurship requires new incentive systems and a new type of researcher. Moreover, if the university itself becomes entrepreneurial, it also acts as a market participant. The purpose of this topic is to bring together theoretical and empirical research approaches dealing with academic entrepreneurship, the organizational design of and the transition to the entrepreneurial university, and the impact of these developments on the regional ecosystem.

ST 03_03 Entrepreneurial Finance

Entrepreneurial companies are the backbone of economic development. Since these firms often lack internal finance, the availability of external finance is crucial for their growth and survival. With traditional financiers of entrepreneurial companies (banks, venture capitalists, or private equity investors) recovering from the financial crisis, new financial instruments and business accelerators have emerged such as incubators, proof-of-concept centers, or crowdfunding platforms. Considering their importance, it is crucial to understand how these instruments influence the development of entrepreneurial businesses. How do they affect the relationship between finance and growth? To which extent can they substitute for traditional sources of finance? Should entrepreneurs favor a particular source of financing over another?

ST 03_04 Entrepreneurial decision making and behaviour

There is a general agreement that the creation, success, longevity, and survival of SMEs are deeply linked to the effectiveness of decision-making processes. Entrepreneurial decisions are affected both internally, at the individual level of the entrepreneur’s cognition, emotions, and ambition, as well as externally, due to the continuous negotiation with different stakeholders. The impact of these decisions’ characteristics and their relation to those of other actors is a fundamental topic to be investigated by entrepreneurship scholars. For this reason, the track welcomes novel research approaches that are conceptual or empirical.

ST 03_05 / ST 06_02 / ST 13_09 Business Model Innovation (BMI)

(co-sponsored by Entrepreneurship SIG-03, Innovation SIG-06 and Strategic Management SIG-13) 

The phenomenon of business model innovation is of holistic nature, difficult to delimit, and its theorising is contingent on the business model concept (Foss and Saebi, 2016). Yet, despite the overall substantive research effort undertaken to understand the business model (Massa, Tucci and Afuah, 2017), resultant literature still fails to agree on a common interpretation of the concept. The ambivalent nature of the business model poses, in consequence, a substantive challenge for developing a theory on business model innovation (Spieth, Schneckenberg and Ricart, 2014). However, theory development on emerging phenomena involves prolonged periods of logical inconsistency and contradiction, and which relies on abstracting from various sources of evidence captured in actual business practice (Weick, 1995: 389). Likewise, the business model topic attracts continued interest in business research and practice (Demil et al., 2015) In sum, business model innovation attracts a continued interest in both business research and practice, and it offers a wide range of avenues for further investigations on its various dimensions.

T 03_06   Cultural Entrepreneurship - Innovative Issues in Arts Business and Cultural & Creative Industries (CCI)

 This track focuses on research and innovative management practices in the arts business and cultural and creative industries (CCI). The arts sector and creative arts industries are growing in Europe and in other western countries. They have become one of the most important and innovative economic sectors, in which cultural entrepreneurs perceive opportunities and create organizations. Therefore, a scientific focus on entrepreneurship, management and marketing in creative arts business seems necessary, e.g., personnel management or governance issues. In this context, the topics of key antecedents, effects and specifics of cultural entrepreneurship need to be explored from a theoretical perspective as well as in practice.

T 03_07 Entrepreneurship, Regions and Regional Development

Regional contexts incubate a high level of entrepreneurial activities, engagement with global networks of production, employment, first-class thinkers, researchers, educators, and entrepreneurs, and thereby increase the quality of society and the economy. The following broad set of the topics will be considered: To what extent does forced migration and refugee status have an impact on regional development as opposed to other types of migration? How does innovation and entrepreneurial behavior evolve and diffuse in hierarchical social networks in private and public organizations? What are the effects of knowledge and information spreading? How can regional entrepreneurship success be measured?

T 03_08  Growth Strategies & Internationalization for SMEs

SMEs growth strategies have been recently marked by increasing levels of internationalization. This evolution is not limited to exports or international outsourcing: it is indeed a brand new way of doing business. Internationalization of SMEs is challenging existing knowledge. Management scholars are invited to provide new perspectives on international entrepreneurial strategies of SMEs, their challenges and evolving business models, their relation to countries of destination, timing and entry mode, managerial tools, organizational structure, quality of acquired knowledge, relationships with multinationals and institutions. Theoretical contributions, reflections, and empirical analyses are welcome, provided they focus on SMEs.

T 03_09  Parenting & Parenthood: A forgotten dimension in entrepreneurship?

This track on Parenting & Parenthood in entrepreneurship aims at widening research on Family Business and questioning parenthood as a determinant of entrepreneurial success. The concept of parenthood stems from the medical, psychological and social sphere, encompassing all legal, political, socio-economic, cultural, and institutional aspects of being a parent (Doumot et al., 2004). It questions not only the function, place, and role of the parent vis-à-vis the child, but also the design of parental responsibility that parents choose for themselves (Martin, 2003). The call welcomes papers that can contribute to enrich this concept and apply it to entrepreneurial issues.

T 03_10   Managerialization and Professionalization in SMEs and family firm

This track welcomes empirical and conceptual contributions to the debate amongst SME and family firm scholars about the diffusion of formal managerial mechanisms, including strategic planning, managerial control systems, and human resource management systems. This may go together with the professionalization of the firm, i.e., the upgrading of human skills, knowledge and experience and the diligent application of specialized knowledge in the firm’s management. A critical issue to ensure growth and sustainability is to understand the 'practice' of managerialization and professionalization, while, at the same time, we need to understand the underlying ‘science’ to help us explain why it happens.
