Event description

Description

The workshop aims to identify an agenda for the next phase of research on sustainable entrepreneurship. Delegates will reflect on the first decade of sustainable entrepreneurship research and debate future directions for scholars and practitioners, which may guide activities beyond 2020. A collection of selected workshop papers will be considered for a journal special issue – the workshop organisers are currently in discussion with a number of small business management/entrepreneurship journal editors about a proposal for this.

The workshop will explore three areas currently defining the agenda for sustainable entrepreneurship research: the nature of sustainable entrepreneurship; the institutional context of sustainable entrepreneurship; and the development of ingenuity strategies for innovative sustainable entrepreneurship in SMEs.

Potential submissions might consider (but are not limited to) the following topics:

  • The meaning and value(s) of sustainable entrepreneurship.
  • Narratives of sustainable entrepreneurship.
  • Institutionalisation of - and institutional work for - sustainable entrepreneurship.
  • Business start-up and sustainable entrepreneurship.
  • Development and growth of SMEs promoting sustainable entrepreneurship.
  • Financing/resourcing sustainable entrepreneurship.
  • Innovation and sustainable entrepreneurship.
  • Policy support required to support sustainable entrepreneurship.
  • Sustainable entrepreneurship in different cultural and national contexts.
  • The conflict between environmental and economic sustainability.
  • Researching/engaging with SMEs/community organisations in relation to sustainable entrepreneurship.
  • Inter-disciplinary or business/community-engaged research agenda-building sand-pits.
  • Variations in ingenuity types and contexts of application.
  • Constraints on ingenuity for SME social entrepreneurs and community organisations.
  • The paradox of embedded agency and its relevance for ingenuity.
  • Relational aspects of ingenuity; boundary work and networking.
  • Policy implications of ingenuity in social enterprises/community organisations.

Scholars and practitioners interested in participating in the workshop are invited to submit an abstract of no more than 250 words, identifying the aims, methods and contribution of the paper. The workshop is free to attend but participation is limited initially to delegates who have had an abstract accepted. Please state clearly the affiliation(s) and contact details of the author(s).

Abstracts should be submitted by Monday 5 March, 2018 to Professor Audley Genus at the following email address: a.genus@kingston.ac.uk
