A growing body of academic literature highlights an important connection between finance and entrepreneurship.
As the engine of economic growth and sustainability, entrepreneurial firms have attracted the eyes of both academic researchers and policy makers. Moreover, during the on-going economic recession their financial and financing issues require further investigation so that entrepreneurial firms can continue to contribute to the economic recovery. We invite international scholars from entrepreneurship, finance, economics, accounting, and other related disciplines to submit papers that advance our knowledge about the interface between finance and entrepreneurship, both theoretically and empirically. Possible research areas include, but are not limited to, finance issues about new ventures and small firms, private equity, venture capitalists, business angels, IPO of ventures, family firms, etc. The associated conference will be held at the Shanghai Institute of Foreign Trade, Shanghai, China.
SUBMISSION AND REVIEW PROCESS: Two PDF files, a title page with authors' information and an anonymous copy, should be sent to Craig Wilson and Zhenyu Wu at on or before March 15, 2012. In your submissions, please indicate whether you would like your paper to be considered for the International Journal of Managerial Finance (IJMF) Special Issue on Finance and Entrepreneurship. There is no submission fee. All manuscripts will be externally reviewed by expert reviewers according to the normal double-blind process and criteria of the IJMF.
