Program for McQuinn-SMG Conference on Strategic Entrepreneurship

Here’s the program for next month’s conference on “Multi- and Micro-Level Issues in Strategic Entrepreneurship,” co-sponsored by the McQuinn Center and the Copenhagen Business School’s Department of Strategic Management and Globalization, 13-14 October in Copenhagen. More information is available at the conference website. There’s still time to register!

Multi- and Micro-Level Issues in Strategic Entrepreneurship

Strategic entrepreneurship has become an exciting new field at the intersection of strategic management and entrepreneurship research. However, most research within the field has focused on identifying what organization-level factors cause firm-level entrepreneurial outcomes, rather than how and why these factors actually work in terms of cross-level and micro-level effects.

  • · R. Duane Ireland, Texas A&M University
