Entrepreneurship Bootcamp – Kansas City, MO

Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation
The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation will host a bootcamp for entrepreneurship research May 19 – 23, 2019 in Kansas City, Missouri.

The program will include two components. The first component is a three-day practical immersion to observe and participate in an annual convening of the Foundation, which brings together hundreds of entrepreneurs, entrepreneurship support organizations, policy advocates, and local policymakers. Bootcamp participants will have the opportunity to interact with stakeholders relevant to entrepreneurship, and to learn firsthand about complex and urgent needs.

The second component is a one-day intensive mentoring and professional development workshop guided by practitioners and researchers, focused on research for practical impact, evolving questions in the study of entrepreneurship, new opportunities for data and methods, and career trajectories in the field.

The program is designed to encourage and connect research with practical problems related to entrepreneurship. Ph.D students and untenured researchers based at U.S. institutions are eligible to apply. The application deadline is February 25, 2019. More information is available here.
