Exemplars in Entrepreneurship

Ronald K. Mitchell and Richard N. Dino

This path-breaking book gathers ‘best practices’ advice from the masters about how to achieve excellence in entrepreneurship research, how to create an outstanding research career and how to avoid the pitfalls that can sidetrack emerging scholars. Combining narratives from the 2009 and 2010 Entrepreneurship Exemplars Conferences, the authors frame the dialogue using person–environment fit theory and present keynote addresses and dialogue sessions that bring together editors and authors to reach into the unexplored corners of the top-tier research craft.

Richard N. Dino Dino, Richard: Welcome to the third day of the Entrepreneurship Research Exemplars Conference. I was doing a little bit of work this morning and I have to tell you that we are absolutely humbled with the worldwide participation and the comments from people. You know, truly this Conference isn’t only about the people that are here. In fact the people that are here are doing this Conference for everyone who can’t be here. A third of our web audience is coming from countries outside of the United States. That is just absolutely amazing. This is just a broad sampling: countries such as England, Scotland, Spain, Denmark, Finland, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Brazil, Hong Kong, India, Germany, Greece, Australia, New Zealand, Israel, Nigeria, China, [and] Japan. And the titles of the folks that are participating on that continuum range from provost to PhD students; and the organizations are represented with universities, foundations, businesses and entrepreneurs. I am absolutely humbled. A couple of emails out of the slew that came in: My feeling is simply the sun has shined. I would call my experience with this conference as completely transformative in transferring tacit knowledge about excellent scholarship, which helped clear up the myth associated with top-tier journal publications. An incredible experience. Invaluable information and interesting dialog and comments. I can hardly wait for the copies next week to go over the many excellent areas of discussions with peers locally. And with that – let’s begin. 300 M2507 - MITCHELL PRINT.indd 300...
