International Conference for Sustainable Entrepreneurship | 2019

Wed, 2019/08/28 - Sat, 2019/08/31
Montreal, Canada

2019/05/17 new submission deadline is June 16/2019.

Originally posted as the International Conference for Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Regional Development, the organisers decided to create an annual conference focusing on sustainable entrepreneurship.  Margo Farnsworth and Jacques Chirazi will lead a workshop on August 28th on "Regenerative Design & Innovation for Entrepreneurs", while Alex Ralevski and Jacques Chirazi will lead "Biomimicry: From Academia to Industry" during the main part of the conference.  They will also be on a panel exploring the relationship of biomimicry to entrepreneurship, education, and research.  The deadline for abstracts is June 16th.

We’d like to introduce to the inaugural edition of the International Conference for Sustainable Entrepreneurship (ICSE). ICSE was founded by Dr. Lotfi Belkhir, Associate Professor and Chair of Eco-entrepreneurship at McMaster University, and it will be held on August 28-31 in Montreal, Canada. ICSE aims to redefine sustainable entrepreneurship as the mainstay of entrepreneurship, where every entrepreneur should be a sustainable entrepreneur. The theme of the conference this year is “Innovating a Carbon-Free Economy in a Thriving Planet”. The conference has been designed to attract academics, sustainability practitioners, entrepreneurs and students and is by definition trans-disciplinary and welcomes participation and submission from all disciplines. 
I’m strongly encouraging you to join and support this conference by submitting an abstract, a workshop proposal or a case study in one of the relevant conference topics, which include biomimicry, circular economy, design for sustainability, low carbon economy etc. Even if you don’t have anything to contribute personally, I encourage you to attend and participate in this new and unique conference at its ground zero, as I believe its agenda fills a really major and urgent gap.
