The BCERC is the most prestigious entrepreneurship research conference in the world.

Each year, over a 1,000 Abstracts are submitted for review. However only 350 are selected to submit full papers to be presented at the conference. A small number of these papers are selected to be published in Frontiers of Entrepreneurship Research. This publication is the most comprehensive collection of empirical research papers on entrepreneurship.
Closing date for Conference Abstracts: 18th October 2017 (See the Call for Papers)

Doctoral Consortium is also held in conjunction with the Conference. It was created as a means to unite future entrepreneurship educators and scholars with established leaders and researchers in the field. The Doctoral Consortium is limited to 25 PhD students. During the doctoral Consortium PhD students get the opportunity to meet and discuss their research with experienced and renowned researchers from across the globe. It is an excellent way for PhD students to progress their research.
