ISBE 2017: Conference Tracks


Over 40 years, ISBE’s annual conference has established itself as one of the most important events in the small business and entrepreneurship calendar, attracting delegates from academic research and teaching, and an ever-growing number from business practice, policy and support.

As we celebrate our 40th conference, we are particularly delighted to be moving to Belfast, building on the great success of our Paris conference last year and with memories of a very enjoyable and dynamic conference when we were last in Belfast in 2008. We anticipate over 400 attendees from more than 40 countries, and offer over 250 presentations of the highest quality new entrepreneurial research on a diverse range of topics along with high profile keynote speakers, stimulating panel debates and a number of specialist workshops.

This year’s theme is Borders, Prosperity and Entrepreneurial Responses. Please find the full call for papers here.


Papers will be presented in the following parallel sessions:
