Entrepreneurship as a research field is more than 30 years old and according to some estimations more than 50 years old given the founding of the first academic journals. During this period of time, we have learned a great deal about entrepreneurs, their ventures, and the issues that a growing entreprise/business is face. This meeting will focus on what the past work has taught us, what we are currently doing to advance our understanding of the entrepreneurial process, and where we should go in the next ten to twenty years. In addition, the meeting will focus statistical approaches to be used in the future.
