The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation has awarded the Organization and Natural Environment Division (ONE) at the Academy of Management (AOM) $25,500 to be used over a period of 3 years. The grant will support research at the intersection of natural environment and entrepreneurship.
Entrepreneurship is an important lever for addressing grand challenges related to environmental sustainability such as biodiversity loss, deforestation, and global warming. Rigorous research can provide evidence-based insights to entrepreneurs for using business as a tool for addressing grand challenges.
Members of the Organizations and Natural Environment (ONE) Division at the Academy of Management (AOM) have spearheaded this scholarly agenda. They engage in rigorous scholarship that explain the when, what, how and why of entrepreneurship which positively impacts the natural environment. Support from the Kauffman Foundation will help ONE members to continue this research.
