Conference and Call for Posters: "Mapping Entrepreneurial Group Trajectories" at the Technical University Berlin, deadline extended 15 June 2019

The Research Group “Entrepreneurial Group Dynamics” and the DFG-Research Network “Venturing Together!” is looking forward to the international conference "Mapping Entrepreneurial Group Trajectories" (25-27 September 2019) which takes place at the Technical University Berlin.

It is the goal of this research conference to create a platform for sociology and management scholars interested in mapping entrepreneurial group trajectories over time and space. The tentative program features keynote speeches by Martin Ruef and Ugo Corte, who will reflect upon entrepreneurial groups as social orders and their collaborative trajectories. Invited and commented presentations will address the dynamics in the formation of groups, key transitional events such as member entry / exit or further business founding and closing (habitual entrepreneurship), and contextual influences on the trajectories of entrepreneurial groups.

We furthermore would like to highlight our poster presentation session in the FORUM ON NEW RESEARCH in the context of the conference. We invite scholars at all levels who are currently engaged in or starting up research projects on issues concerning entrepreneurial groups and their pathways. The idea is to create a working atmosphere, in which we can discuss new research ideas, concerns and methodological challenges at an early stage in the research process. Please find the Call for Poster attached.

If you are interested in attending the conference, please contact the conference coordinator Marie Gutzeit at m.gutzeit@tu-berlin.de. There will be no registration fees charged. We have limited seats available on a first come, first serve basis. 

If you are interested in a poster presentation, please submit an abstract of 200 words until June 15th, 2019 to isabell.stamm@tu-berlin.de. Final posters should fulfill academic standards and depict the research question, theoretical framework, methodological design, expected findings and contributions. For information see the attached PDF.

The conference will be held at the Technical University of Berlin. In the heart of the City West, between KuDamm and Schloss Charlottenburg, the Department for Sociology welcomes you for a productive meeting. Address: Fraunhoferstr. 33-36, 10587 Berlin.
