ABOUT THE AOM ENTREPRENEURSHIP CONFERENCE: The Academy of Management's (AOM) Entrepreneurship Division launched the Exemplars Conference Series in 2009 as a "new-format" invited best practices conference for advancing top-tier research in entrepreneurship. The inaugural conference was held at the University of Connecticut, and its aim was to set transparent milestones for encouraging and accelerating the successful publishing of top-tier entrepreneurship research from multi-disciplinary, highly committed scholars. All sessions were web-streamed and recorded for future downloading, and that tradition continues with the 2012 event co-organized with Darden's Batten Institute.
