The Ivey Business School is honoured to host the 2014 Babson College Entrepreneurship Research Conference (BCERC) on June 4-7. Hosted by the Pierre L. Morrissette Institute for Entrepreneurship (The Institute) and the Entrepreneurship Cross-Enterprise Leadership Centre, the conference will mark the BCERC's return to Canada for the first time in 26 years.

 

The conference will be held at Ivey's new state-of-the-art Richard Ivey Building; an open-concept building equipped with interactive conference rooms, relaxing meeting spaces and a beautiful garden courtyard that inspires all who visit. Accommodation space has been reserved at the Hilton London Ontario situated at the center of the city with daily transportation organized by Ivey.

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 proceedings of the conference and is the most comprehensive collection of empirical research papers on entrepreneurship.
