Entrepreneurship Research Society (ERS)



ERS Info finalAbout ERS

The Entrepreneurship Research Society (ERS) brings together a community of scholars for entrepreneurship research across all disciplines. Comprising those who teach, practice or research entrepreneurship, ERS’ “big-tent community” allows researchers to network, find research partnerships, and foster interdisciplinary thinking.

By exploring entrepreneurship from a variety of facets – ranging from psychology, sociology, human ecology, economics, to agricultural business and more – ERS avoids exclusivity and is open to those who are not themselves entrepreneurs.
