Conference on the social aspects of entrepreneurship

The 25th RENT (Research in Entrepreneurship and Small Business) Conference coming up in Bodø, Norway on 16-18 November 2011 has also decided to focus on the social dimensions of entrepreneurship:

Entrepreneurship, Business and Society

The 25th RENT-conference will highlight the interplay between the entrepreneur, the entrepreneurial firm and the society. We will emphasize how new firms are a result of entrepreneurs interacting with stakeholders in their environment, not only in the market but also with interest groups and government institutions. In addition to business entrepreneurship we will highlight community and social entrepreneurship where the entrepreneur is working at community level to create social change and welfare, where success is measured in terms of the effect on the society. Submissions of any aspect of entrepreneurship and small business development are welcome, but preferably concerning the following issues:

  1. Entrepreneurship & growth
  2. Corporate and Strategic Entrepreneurship
  3. The role of universities in fostering entrepreneurship
  4. Spin off processes and knowledge transfer
