Call for Papers: 4th EntFin Conference July 2-3, 2019, Trier (Germany)

ABOUT

After the successful ENTFIN conferences in Lyon (2016), Ghent (2017), and Milan (2018), the ENTFIN Association and the FGF e. V. will organize the fourth conference on Entrepreneurial Finance in the historical city of Trier, Germany on July 2-3, 2019.
ENTFIN is the association of Entrepreneurial Finance, gathering together scholars from finance, management, and entrepreneurship. The FGF is the leading academic association for Entrepreneurship, Innovation and SME research in the DACH-region.

FOCUS
Recent developments in technology and regulation have led to new forms of entrepreneurial finance. New players and new ways to finance entrepreneurial firms have emerged or will emerge (Ahlstrom et al., 2018; Block et al., 2018). Some financial instruments like crowdfunding in its various forms have found their way into the entrepreneur’s toolbox and are on their way of getting mature, whilst others like initial coin offerings (ICOs) are only now becoming available but have a huge potential to shape the entrepreneurial finance landscape in the future (Fisch, 2019). This highlights that more in-depth insights are needed on optimal financing strategies for new ventures.
The conference aims at exploring topics such as:
• Bank and debt financing
• Blockchain and smart contracts
• Bootstrap financing
• Business angels
• Crowdfunding
• Family offices
• Incubators and accelerators
• Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs)
• Initial Public Offerings (IPOs)
• IP-based financing
• Private equity and buyouts
• Small firm financing
• Social venture capital, social impact investing
• Venture capital (including governmental VC, corporate VC, …)

Melissa Cardon, Nestlé Professor of Business Administration at University of Tennessee, will be coming to visit the Management and Organization department (SBE) at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam the first week of October (1-5). Melissa’s research focuses on unleashing human potential within entrepreneurial firms, including a dual interest in HR practices that maximize employee potential, and the emotional, relational, and cognitive aspects of entrepreneurs that contribute to optimizing their behavior and performance. Her recent work is on entrepreneurial passion and how entrepreneurs as individuals and within teams can unleash their passion to get the best results for themselves and their organizations.

Given this great opportunity, I’m putting out an invitation to join sessions with Melissa during this week.

 

First, I invite you to a ‘Meet the Editor’ session with Melissa from 12.00-14.00 on 1 October (location @VU). This session will give an opportunity to staff from VU as well as from other universities to ask questions about writing and discuss publishing opportunities. Please let me know if you plan to join this session.

 

Second, on the 4th, I invite you to a lunch seminar (12.00-13.00) in which Melissa will present about her current research (location @VU). This session will be open to everyone and include lunch. Please let me know if you would like to join.

ABOUT THE TOPIC

DESIGN ROADMAPPING is for anyone interested in design, strategy and innovations and its wonderful combination that can be found in a design roadmap. For designers, strategists and innovators alike, we compiled a design book to guide you on your journey of roadmapping the future, with the land marks of products and services you envisioned together with a team of innovators. A journey that can start with uncovering new trends, scouting for new technologies, and mapping the values on the roadmap. Along the way, you can map a future vision, frame the time pacing and create the pathways towards it.

In this talk Lianne Simonse will share some of the essentials in design roadmapping that stem directly from her working life as an industrial consultant, roadmapper, researcher and teacher in a design school. Besides the highlights and explorations on the decision support that a roadmap can offer, she will delve into the creative challenges of trend research and future visioning that are part of roadmapping.
