In the last 15 years, research on business models has grown exponentially, leading to an international community of scholars that have contributed to generate new ideas, causal relations and tools in a variety of subjects using the business model lens. Indeed, business model draws on a multitude of management disciplines including entrepreneurship, strategy, HRM, organization, finance, marketing and operations management.
We invite scholars -whether PhD students or more confirmed scholars- rooted in any discipline studying business models (innovation, entrepreneurship, economics, strategy, marketing, information systems, HRM, finance…) to participate. Scholars may submit their research (achieved or in progress) on the topic of the performance of business models, but other themes about business models are welcome too. Both theoretical papers and empirical analyses (quantitative or qualitative) may be submitted. Papers concerning any kind of organizations (firms, non-profit organizations, government….) and any industry are also suitable. While a lot has been done, leading to fascinating insights for research and practice, research on business models is still raising new questions, proving that it is a progressive research stream in the sense of Lakatos. A scholarly conference dedicated to this topic is an opportunity to have constructive discussions on researching and teaching business models.
The organizers hope to create with the participants a friendly and supportive ambiance at the conference as the objective is to convey a regular conference.
At this date, we will need a submission of a developed abstract (ca. 1500 words excluding references and tabeles/figures) or a full length paper. You can submit your paper here.
If you have been accepted, you will be notified on this date.
