2nd Developmental Workshop on Entrepreneurial Teams and

Collective Entrepreneurship Research

Call for Abstracts

IÉSEG School of Management, September 18, 2017, Paris, France

While it has been 40 years since Jeffry A. Timmons wrote about entrepreneurial teams and wondered whether they were ‘an American dream or nightmare?’ (Timmons, 1975), research into this topic remains relatively recent. Indeed, it was the late 1980s-early 1990s before Reich (1987) urged us to “celebrate collective entrepreneurship” and Kamm and her colleagues published their seminal research agenda on entrepreneurial teams (Kamm et al. 1990). However, research relating to entrepreneurial teams is now picking up momentum, with journal special issues (International Small Business Journal, June 2005; Management Research News, 2009; Entrepreneurship Theory & Practice, January 2013), literature reviews and conference tracks on the topic increasingly visible.

What are the movements that are occurring in developing an understanding of entrepreneurial teams? In seeking to capture the signals of the current evolutions of entrepreneurial teams research, Ben-Hafaïedh (2017) identified three main trends.

These trends offer non-limitative examples of the questions that would be interesting to address in this workshop.

Aims of the workshop

The purpose of this workshop is twofold. First, it aims at creating an international community of researchers interested in the topics of entrepreneurial teams and collective entrepreneurship more generally. Second, it has a developmental objective, i.e. papers will be thoroughly reviewed and discussed by the peers, including the keynote speaker, in order to advance them on the path of publication. We thus welcome original research but also papers that have been presented before (or are scheduled to be).

Abstract Deadline: June 30, 2017

The workshop will be hosted by IESEG School of Management, Paris campus (Paris-La Défense), France on the 18th of September 2017. A dinner cruise will conclude the day to explore Paris from its best avenue, the Seine.
