In an environment of momentous change, both in the UK and the wider global stage itself, the need to address small business growth and entrepreneurship through collaboration has become imperative.
The findings and lessons from academic research in the area need more than ever to be shared, discussed and actioned by the worlds of academia, policy and practice. All are being driven to find the most cost-effective and immediate solutions to their challenges, whether it be local, national or international.
Northumbria and Newcastle Universities jointly hosted the Institute of Small Business and Entrepreneurship annual conference in Newcastle in 2019. This prestigious international event has a reputation for the highest-quality, cutting-edge entrepreneurial and small business research, both nationally and internationally.
The ISBE conference is a catalyst for igniting a new type of innovative and dynamic entrepreneurial leadership necessary for unlocking entrepreneurial ambitions across businesses, support agencies and higher education not only in the North East of England, but also on the international stage.
The conference aimed to redefine entrepreneurial spaces, literally and metaphorically to :-
• Strengthen commitment to Enterprise and Innovation through impactful research that raises regional entrepreneurial aspirations
• Showcase the regions highly innovative and fast growing New Economy industries where knowledge is the key to business growth and sustainability
• Inspire the creation of globally connected innovative communities
