Our annual NYU-Stern Conference on Social Entrepreneurship is dedicated to the ongoing development of theory and research on social entrepreneurship and its impact on global communities. The aim of the two-day academic conference is to bring together scholars in social entrepreneurship to discuss emerging concepts and themes in social entrepreneurship research. Conceptual papers, research papers presenting quantitative and/or qualitative data are welcome, as well as case studies and practitioner contributions. Our previous conference can be viewed here.
