2nd Workshop on Experimental Economics and Entrepreneurship

We are happy to announce the second Workshop on Experimental Economics and Entrepreneurship, sponsored by Copenhagen Business School thanks to a generous grant from the The Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Foundation and Florida State University thanks to a generous grant from the Kauffman Foundation.

Friday, May 4, 2018 - 09:00 to Saturday, May 5, 2018 - 16:00

The workshop is meant to promote partnerships between economic experimenters and scholars studying entrepreneurship, and to expose graduate students and recent PhD graduates in Economics and Management to the benefits and challenges of research at the intersection of experimental economics and entrepreneurship.

Although there is no shortage of behavioral work in entrepreneurship, there has been relatively little work in experimental economics that addresses topics in entrepreneurship. In recent years a number of researchers have shown increasing interest towards incorporating lab and field experiments into the study of entrepreneurship. Some interesting cross-fertilization has already occurred and much more is possible at this stage. Both lab and field experiments provide great benefits for examining the topic, including tight control over the environment and, particularly in lab experiments, the ability to examine the process underlying individuals' decisions. Our goal is to generate more experiments, both in the lab and the field, studying entrepreneurship.
