Invitation to DARE Research Seminar – Leiden University 16 May

We cordially invite you to attend the DARE research seminar on “Entrepreneurial Dynamics in a Globalized World”, which will be organized in collaboration with the Department of Business Studies of Leiden University.

Where?                Room A051 (“Grotiuszaal”), Kamerlingh Onnes Building, Leiden Law School, Leiden University

When?                 Thursday May 16, 2019 (13:30 – 18:00, borrel included)

Organizing committee:

  • Werner Liebregts
  • Neil Thompson
  • Peter van der Zwan

Theme of the seminar: Entrepreneurial Dynamics in a Globalized World

There exists a lot of dynamism in entrepreneurship, which is in part reflected by individuals’ mobility in and out of entrepreneurship. Workers may move between, and return to, labor market positions to learn about their skills, ability, and earnings. Individuals may also decide to become entrepreneurs at a later age, known as senior entrepreneurship, which has received increased attention in the context of ageing societies.

We welcome research that focuses on the concept of entrepreneurial dynamics. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Entrepreneurial entry and exit
  • Causes (e.g., health, wellbeing) and consequences (e.g., earnings) of entrepreneurial mobility
  • Senior/late-career entrepreneurship
  • Access to the social welfare system
  • Hybrid/portfolio/serial entrepreneurship
  • Spin-ins/spin-outs/spin-offs
  • Corporate-startup collaboration

Scholars who are interested in presenting their work at the upcoming DARE Research Seminar are kindly requested to submit an extended abstract or a full working paper to Werner Liebregts no later than Monday April 15, 2019. We welcome submissions of both theoretical and empirical papers that are not yet published. Papers may also focus on novel research methods in research directions related to the seminar’s theme.

We look forward to receiving your work and to your attendance on the 16th of May!
