Seminar and Workshop

What is interesting about entrepreneurship research? What is relevant in entrepreneurship research? What does rigour and relevance mean to different users of academic research? This one day event in Leeds, organised by The Centre for Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Studies at Leeds University Business School in association with the Institute for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (ISBE), will bring together senior policy makers, business owners, and academics from all career stages, to discuss these questions.
