Call for Attendees: Midwest Entrepreneurship Research Workshop

The Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City and the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation are partnering to present the Midwest Entrepreneurship Research Workshop, which will be held the afternoon of May 29 and morning of May 30 in Kansas City.

This event will provide an opportunity for regional researchers to learn about current and emerging topics in entrepreneurship, interact with fellow researchers, and learn more about the Kansas City Census Research Data Center opening Fall 2015. Most of the time at the workshop will be devoted to interaction between workshop participants. The goal of the workshop is to facilitate communication and collaboration among entrepreneurship researchers in the Midwest region and to provide scholars an opportunity to receive feedback on their work and to learn what others are doing in the area of entrepreneurship.

The first day of the event will take place at the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City and will feature a confirmed presentation by Lee Fleming (University of California-Berkeley) on patent work and crowdfunding. The second day of the event will take place at the Kauffman Foundation and will feature another featured speaker.


Entrepreneurship researchers located in Kansas, Missouri, and surrounding states are invited to attend this conference and may present their research. Projects may be in any stage of development. Research proposals may be dedicated to an individual topic, as well as multi-disciplinary and holistic study. Policy-oriented research proposals are also appropriate.

If you are interested in participating in the workshop, you will be asked to upload abstracts or papers for your current entrepreneurship research projects, regardless of the stage of development. The abstracts will allow for better planning of the workshop sessions.
