Entrepreneurship research, policy and practice for a more equitable world

Any queries, please contact us at 

This year, we are delighted to be bringing ISBE to Sheffield and look forward to another stimulating and vibrant event.

The ISBE conference connects practitioners and policymakers with business support practitioners and academics, nurturing productive dialogue and engagement amongst these groups, allowing research to inform policy and practice to create genuine change, while facilitating practitioner and policy communities to inform the research agenda and support engaged scholarship and knowledge exchange.

The conference also provides the opportunity for everyone from PhD students, early career researchers and established academics through to entrepreneurs and policymakers to discuss their work and receive valuable feedback from other experts in their field.

Papers will be presented in the following parallel sessions:

Authors are invited to submit abstracts until Friday 17th May 2024. Abstracts should be a minimum of 750 words, state clearly the purpose and contribution of the paper and summarise the paper’s conceptual framework and (where appropriate) methods, as well as providing a summary of likely key findings/conclusions and their implications for practice and/or policy. Please click here for the Author Guidelines.

Track chairs will be aiming to provide prompt feedback on abstracts on receipt of your abstract.
