Babson College Entrepreneurship Research Conference
Founded by Babson College in 1981, BCERC is considered by many to be the premier entrepreneurship research conference in the world.
Frontiers of Entrepreneurship Research contains the
BCERC Proceedings of the conference and is the most comprehensive collection of empirical research papers on entrepreneurship.
The Entrepreneurial Research Conference was established to provide a dynamic venue where academics and real-world practitioners, through spirited dialogue, could link theory and practice. Each year, the Conference attracts more than 350 entrepreneurial scholars who come to hear the presentation of more than 220 papers.
A Doctoral Consortium is held in conjunction with the Conference and was created as a means to unite future entrepreneurship educators and scholars with established leaders and researchers in the field.
