Entrepreneurial Heffalumps

In this Entrepreneurship Studies Network SIG PDW, the attention will focus on the absence, or avoidance, of alternatives to mainstream approaches in entrepreneurship research. Through a series of provocations, based on recent published research, attendees will be encouraged to rethink accepted schools of though in entrepreneurship and consider the alternative avenues for the future of entrepreneurship research
