16th WEST COAST RESEARCH SYMPOSIUM ON TECHNOLOGY ENTREPRENEURSHIP
- Theme: Technology Entrepreneurship
- Location: Foster School of Business, University of Washington
- Dates: September 13-14, 2018
We invite authors to submit papers to our research symposium, a lively forum for the exchange of ideas among scholars interested in technology entrepreneurship. The 2018 conference will be held at the Foster School of Business, University of Washington, a spectacular setting in Seattle at this time of year.
Papers focusing on entrepreneurship and innovation in technology-based settings will be given preference. In addition to our broad focus on technology entrepreneurship, for 2018 we especially encourage submissions from authors examining strategy in nascent markets (e.g., ecosystem and platform industries, emergence of technologies, categories, and industries), emerging entrepreneurship-related phenomena (e.g., crowdfunding, competing in the sharing economy, and the emergence and proliferation of unicorns), and the important role of culture and institutions in entrepreneurship.
We expect to host an intimate conference of 50+ leading scholars from around the world. The conference steering committee invites the submission of unpublished working papers that advance the state of knowledge on the above topics. Conference registration for faculty is $150, but meals are complementary. A doctoral consortium sponsored will precede the conference on Wednesday, September 12, 2018.
