OBJECTIVES AND SCOPE. SINCE ITS FIRST CONFERENCE IN 1989, The Academy of Entrepreneurial Finance (AEF) continues to offer a dedicated forum for exchange of research and application ideas related to the field of Real-Life Entrepreneurial Finance; i.e., Behavioral-Finance-Based Entrepreneurial Finance and Venture Creation. Given the central role of the small and medium enterprise (SME) in a free market economy, the objective of the conference is to encourage research and inquiry in the discipline. Although the focus of the annual event is on the financial, economic, behavioral, and accounting aspects of the small firm, papers in closely-related areas will also be considered for presentation. Naturally, research on applied business, finance, and economics is also encouraged. AEF’s key areas of interest include:
1. Risk and Risk-Taking in Start-ups and Growing Ventures;
2. Venture Capital- Financing Small/Entrepreneurial Ventures;
3. Blockchain Financing and Business Models; Initial Coin Offerings/ICOs; Fintech;
4. Venture Valuation, Investing;
5. Initial Public Offerings and Other Exit Strategies;
6. Financial Institutions, Regulation/Policy, and Small Business Financing;
7. Innovations in Capital Markets for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs);
8. Economics and Accounting of Small Business;
9. Small Firm Success and/or Failure;
10. Sustainable Economy/Finance/Society through Entrepreneurship and Innovations; and
11. Other related issues- including Globalization and Technological factors affecting Capital Access and Startup Processes.
