What is happening at ACERE2021 this week?

ACERE2021 – the Australian Entrepreneurship Research Exchange – takes place this week and we are delighted to welcome all delegates and presenters.

  • Paper Presentation Sessions (Authors presenting their papers with discussions)
  • Paper Development Sessions (Authors get developmental feedback from senior scholar in an interactive way)

As a first-time participant and a new doctoral student just 6 months in, the conference has been extremely useful for me in terms of my own personal learning and in meeting new, liked-minded individuals. I would definitely encourage more of my friends to apply the conference in the future.
