Join the 3rd GMLG Conference on Entrepreneurship, January 17 to 19, 2013!
Conference Venue: Leuphana Campus & Hotel Seminaris, Lueneburg
Conference Theme: Gender Perspectives on University Education and Entrepreneurship
Again, the international GMLG Conference on Entrepreneurship will bring together scientists, entrepreneurs, financiers, practitioners, policy makers, and students. This time, the first conference day will consist of parallel sessions with paper presentations (see "Call for Papers", best papers will be invited to submit to the International Journal of Gender and Entrepreneurship for a special issue publication) as well as a workshop-track that brings together scientists, policy makers, and practitioners. We are proud to inform you that Prof. Colette Henry (Royal Veterinary College, University of London), Prof. Leona Achtenhagen (Jönköping University, Sweden) and Prof. Jay Mitra (University of Essex, United Kingdom) have already agreed to take over the keynote speaker positions.
In addition to paper presentations, students will participate in a business idea pitch competition with attractive prizes. In order to support an exchange of ideas and experiences between the multifaceted conference attendants, Speakers’ and Companies’ Corners will invite to establish a more personal contact during the breaks on Friday. We are delighted to welcome again well-known companies as conference supporters. The conference will also include one-day practitioner-workshops for students on Saturday.
A recent study confirms that Leuphana is the most start-up friendly university in Northern Germany (no. 4 in all of Germany). Luenale 2012 (a combined ceremony of Lueneburg’s four most relevant business awards) showed once more the great entrepreneurial potential at Leuphana. In this context, our conference is a very innovative way of teaching that combines cutting-edge international research with highly practical and action-oriented workshops and pitches. GMLG2013 will be embedded into a nation-wide research project, funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
Welcome to GMLG2013!
Dr. Silke Tegtmeier
