Do you define yourself as an early career researcher [ECR] of entrepreneurship or small business?

ISBE has launched an ECR forum and we want you to be part of it!

The aim of the ECR forum is to support the personal and professional development of those who are at a formative stage in their entrepreneurship and small business research careers

Our objectives are therefore to:

· provide relevant activities, initiatives and events which harness the potential of early career researchers of entrepreneurship and small business

· encourage supportive interaction and dialogues between early career researchers and their peers

· facilitate knowledge exchange between ECRs and more experienced academics

· ensure the needs of early career ISBE members are fed-back to the ISBE board and recognized in targeted activities and initiatives

To join the ECR forum, click here and add your details. You can then choose your preferences, ticking the relevant box. If the system finds that you are already subscribed to the ISBE mailing list, you will then see a link to update your preferences where you can also click the relevant tickbox. If you require any assistance, please contact us at
