After a hiatus since 2019 due to COVID, we are excited to announce the Global Entrepreneurship and Innovation Research Conference will be hosted by the University of Colorado Leeds School of Business in Boulder, Colorado on June 13-14, 2024.


The 2024 GEIRC, a collaboration between the University of Virginia Darden School of Business, the University of Cambridge Judge Business School, and the University of Colorado Leeds School of Business, will be the 11th gathering of the conference which rotates between North America (Virginia, Colorado), Europe (Cambridge), and Asia (Hong Kong). This global conference aims to promote worldwide scholarly collaborations across regions, continents and academic communities.


The conference is interdisciplinary and brings together a diverse set of presenters and discussants for two days of scholarly conversation on innovation and entrepreneurship. The conference promises to provide a vigorous and lively discussion about current research in the fields of entrepreneurship and innovation from a global perspective. Selected papers will receive the attention of the entire conference as well as a formal discussant.


The Deming Center for Entrepreneurship plans to host optional outdoor activities (hiking, mountain biking) for those interested, a gala dinner in the Rocky Mountains, and a PhD Student showcase. June is a fabulous time to enjoy the best of Colorado!


If you have any questions regarding the conference please contact co-chairs Janet Bercovitz and/or Jeff York


The deadline to submit papers has passed. We will contact accepted authors by the end of February.
