Mission

Our aim is to facilitate discussions and kickstart interdisciplinary research projects on the challenges and opportunities of entrepreneurial diversity in the face of digitalization. The conference brings together scholars, practitioners and students to discuss the following questions from an interdisciplinary angle:

  • Is entrepreneurial diversity facilitated by or a facilitator of (digital) innovation?

  • How does entrepreneurial diversity affect the exploration and exploitation of (digital) innovation potentials?

  • Which digital tools and infrastructures can be used to foster diversity in entrepreneurial endeavors?

On day 1 of this two-day conference, we are inviting interdisciplinary scholars and practitioners to share their ideas and experiences and determine the current state of knowledge through various Diversity Talks. On day 2, these insights will be used in a Paperthon to kick-start interdisciplinary research projects exploring different facets of entrepreneurial diversity in the context of digitalization.

The latest deadline for the conference registration is 10 June (proposals are due to 26 April!). More information regarding the conference fees can be found under ‘General Information‘.
