The Entrepreneurship Division now invites paper and symposium proposals for the 84th Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management (AOM 2024) held in person 9-13 August 2024, in Chicago, IL, USA. Proposals should fit the domain of the Entrepreneurship Division, which includes not only the phenomena of self-employment, new-venture formation and financing, small-business management, family business, innovation, and firm growth, but also more general ideas about the recognition, analysis, and exploitation of perceived entrepreneurial opportunities. Additionally, the nature of novelty, creativity, and innovativeness among individuals and organizations, and how people and groups exercise judgment under uncertainty and in a variety of enterprising contexts will be considered.
This year's conference theme is "Innovating for the Future." The future state of the organization is of perennial concern to management scholars and managers themselves. Political unrest, economic volatility, inequality, rapid technological change, environmental erosion, health crises, and pronounced societal issues across the globe continue to challenge traditional approaches to governing the organization. The 2024 theme calls for our community to the importance of innovation and policy-making (at macro, meta, and micro levels) in shaping organizations in pursuit of sustainable growth. As members of the Entrepreneurship Division, we are in a privileged position to produce both rigorous and practically relevant research that might allow entrepreneurs, managers, policy makers and other stakeholders to more effectively and collaboratively meet the challenges presented. Thus, we invite members of the Entrepreneurship Division to offer further insight and join in the discussions around this critical theme, though proposals on any topic related to entrepreneurship are welcome.
Paper and symposium proposals are due Tuesday, 9 January 2024 at 17:00 ET (UTC-5/GMT-5). The AOM 2024 Submission Center will be available in the beginning of December 2023. Early submissions are encouraged.
We continue to thank all of our members and colleagues who have submitted, reviewed and volunteered in this and previous years. You have helped make the ENT division collegiate, inclusive, and welcoming and a special place to be for all.
We strongly encourage all who are submitting to the Entrepreneurship Division to support us by volunteering to review for the Entrepreneurship Division. The Division needs at least 1,500 reviewers. Your help in supporting our community with this task and helping its growth and development is greatly appreciated. The reviewer sign-up system opens early December 2023.
The Entrepreneurship Division recognizes several best paper awards and best dissertation awards as part the meeting program.
