Over the years the Mason Entrepreneurship Research Conference (MERC) has become a great sounding board for shaping early stage research ideas as well as a friendly venue to receive feedback on fully developed papers in a collegial and inclusive format.
Our conference is open to researchers interested in the field of entrepreneurship from any discipline. Hence researchers from all academic disciplines are invited to participate in this annual event. In the past, researchers from business, public policy, engineering, education, economics, geography, health sciences, sociology, humanities and political sciences have participated in this conference.
- To build a community of researchers committed to furthering entrepreneurial studies and developing scholarly networks for research.
- To encourage researchers from cross-disciplinary fields to initiate collaborative research projects and explore new trends, opportunities, and challenges in entrepreneurship related fields of study.
