Founded by Babson College in 1981, BCERC is considered by many to be the premier entrepreneurship research conference in the world.

Thought Leadership

The Entrepreneurial Research Conference was established to provide a dynamic venue where academics and real-world practitioners, through spirited dialogue, could link theory and practice. Each year, the conference attracts more than 350 entrepreneurial scholars who come to hear the presentation of more than 220 papers.
