AMD Shark Tank Session at AOM 2024

Contestants Needed for Academy of Management Discoveries (AMD) Shark Tank Workshop held during AOM's Annual Meeting
Saturday, 10 August 2024 from 15:00-16:30 (UTC-4/GMT-4)
Hyatt Regency Chicago, Toronto Suite

  • Chet Miller, Academy of Management Discoveries Editor-in-Chief

Workshop Information

While in Chicago for the AOM Annual Meeting, participate in the highly regarded “AMD Shark Tank.” Like the reality TV show, participants will “pitch” their paper ideas to a panel of leading management scholars who will then, along with the audience, be asked to vote for the most promising papers.

Submission Requirements

If you are interested in being “on the show,” submit an extended abstract of your proposed paper (up to four double-spaced pages for the abstract). From the pool of submissions, the AMD editor team will select finalists to serve as contestants. Each contestant will be given 5 to 6 minutes (no more than 4 power point slides) to summarize the study during the live session (i.e., make the pitch). Esteemed panelists will then be given a few minutes to give quick, constructive, and perhaps humorous feedback for each paper. 

Submit your extended abstracts by 8 July 2024. You must be registered to attend the Annual Meeting to participate in this workshop.
