    E6.1. Entrepreneurship and Innovation: The Practitioners' Perspectives

    This session will contain a broad spectrum of entrepreneurship presentations from the perspective of the practitioner. Suggested topics that are suitable for this session can be at any level of analysis and deal with any aspect of entrepreneurship or innovation. Levels of analysis span a wide range, including (from macroscopic to microscopic): ○ the space industry (aka the "field" level of analysis) ○ an entire industry sector (aka the "community" level, e.g., space transportation), or a broad category of industry capability (e.g. propulsion) ○ an industry segment or sub-sector (aka the "population" level, e.g., human suborbital), or a more specific industry capability (e.g., liquid rockets, or solid rocket motors) ○ an individual firm (aka the "organization" level) ○ a portion of a firm, or a group of individuals within a firm (aka the "sub-unit" level) ○ an individual (unsurprisingly referred to as the "individual" level) Example topics that would be suitable for this session include descriptions of new market sectors, new businesses, new business plans, new projects, recent experiences of startup companies, etc. ABSTRACT GUIDELINES: The abstract should stand on its own. There are two options for abstract content from which to choose: ○ Option 1 - Research Paper: The submitted abstract should include the following information, and not exceed one page (approximately 400-500 words): § What did the author do? What ideas, notions, hypotheses, concepts, theories or thoughts were investigated? § How did the author do the work? What data were generated and used? What was the origin of the data? How were data gathered? What tests, scales, indices, or summary measures were used? In other words, how was the analysis and/or synthesis done? § What were the conclusions and what were the significant findings? ○ Option 2 - Research Paper: The content of the research article abstract includes the following sections: § Research problem: Summarize your purpose and rationale (1 to 2 sentences) § Research questions: Explicitly state the research questions § Literature review: Identify the bodies of literature you consulted; Summarize the key points of the review § Methodology: Identify your study as qualitative, quantitative, critical, or mixed; Identify your study as case study, experiment, survey or other; Describe how you chose participants and how many you used; Describe how you chose your location and its type; Identify your method of data collection; Name your analysis techniques § Results and Conclusions: Summarize your answers to the research questions; Summarize the implications of your results (1 sentence); Summarize the limitations of your study (1 sentence); Summarize your suggested future research (1 sentence) ○ Option 3 - Case Studies: For case studies, the following sections could be briefly described in the abstract: § Background § Research Questions § Situating the case § Methodology § About the case § Conclusions It is recognized that some studies cannot readily be summarized in this way and require more descriptive abstracts. Do not use telegraphic phrases. Do not repeat information given in the title. Do not use abbreviations. The purpose of an abstract is to enable the abstract evaluation and paper selection committee to understand the essential hypothesis, method and findings of the research. If selected during the March meetings, the authors will be asked to submit an extended abstract to ken.davidian@gmail.com within 60 days, with the following content and format: ○ Total Page Length: 5-10 pages ○ Sections: Introduction/Background, Literature Review, Methods, Data, Results, Conclusions, Limitations, Future Research ○ Page Margins (Left, Right, Top, Bottom): 1 inch/2.5cm ○ Font Size: 12 point ○ Font Style: Times New Roman ○ Line Spacing: Double

    E6.5-GTS.1. Entrepreneurship Around the World

    Entrepreneurship around the world is not the same. Some of the challenges that entrepreneurs face transcend national and cultural borders, but many others do not. This session welcomes papers and presentations that describe the barriers experienced by real entrepreneurs in their different countries and regions around the world. A summary discussion will identify the commonalities and unique characteristics of nation-specific entrepreneurial barriers as identified by the presenters. This is a technical session co-sponsored by the IAF Entrepreneurship and Investment Committee (EIC) and the IAF Workforce Development/Young Professionals Programme Committee, as part of the Global Technical Sessions – presenters can present in person at the IAC or from their home/work/university location.
