Entrepreneurship involves the study of new business creation as well as the actual process of planning, launching and running a new business. The Entrepreneurship Research Network on SSRN is an open access preprint server that provides a venue for authors to showcase their research papers in our digital library, speeding up the dissemination and providing the scholarly community access to groundbreaking working papers and early-stage research. SSRN provides the opportunity to share different outputs of research such as preliminary or exploratory investigations, book chapters, PhD dissertations, course and teaching materials, presentations, and posters among others. SSRN also helps Entrepreneurship scholars discover the latest research in their own and other fields of interest, while providing a platform for the early sharing of their own work, making it available for subsequent work to be built upon more quickly.
Entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship researchers must be conversant not just about business principles, but also with how those principles interact in practice with law, economics, public policy, and society. SSRN’s Entrepreneurship Research & Policy Network (ERPN) includes early-stage academic research across the entire field of entrepreneurship studies, from law and finance, to management and marketing, to economics, innovation, growth, and the teaching of entrepreneurship.
