21st Century Entrepreneurship Research Fellows



The mission of the 21st Century Entrepreneurship Research Fellows is to advance entrepreneurship research by:

  • Identifying and sharing “best practices” involving how the Global Consortium of Entrepreneurship Centers (GCEC) members can facilitate high quality entrepreneurship research within their institutions.
  • Identifying leading edge research issues and domains, and encouraging the conduct of such research through information sharing with GCEC member institutions and the larger community of entrepreneurship scholars.
  • Developing and conducting high profile research initiatives that demonstrate the highest level of scholarship to entrepreneurship centers and the academic community at large.
