    • November Entrepreneurship Issues Forum:   This forum will feature various researchers and heartland community partner organizations from the Kauffman Foundation's Inclusive Ecosystem portfolio- comprised of three-year projects that will explore entrepreneurial ecosystems in the Heartland states, these grants will emphasize holistic, community-led approaches to research on entrepreneurial ecosystems. Grantees will discuss the impact of systemic forces on entrepreneurial ecosystems, as well as highlight ways to engage communities in conversation around geographic inequality, structural racism, and overall community wellness. They will also discuss their work to develop research-driven case studies and tools for assessing equity in ecosystems.  ​​​​​​​Learn more about their work.​​​​​​​

      Join us as we explore the positive impact of prioritizing a community's voice on efforts to embed equity into research, as well as the benefits of centering the needs of a given community for collaboration between researchers and practitioners.    Register Now.


    • Going to APPAM? Meet Us At Our Pre-Conference Workshop on New Entrepreneurship Data:   Please join the Kauffman Foundation and our partners from NORC at the University of Chicago for a special workshop focused on a newly available data resource: the Entrepreneurship in the Population (EPOP) Survey. This pre-conference workshop will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 16, from 11a.m. to 5p.m., as part of at the Association for Public Policy Analysis & Management (APPAM) conference in Washington, D.C. A fee is required to participate.
      The EPOP Survey is a five-year cross-sectional study about entrepreneurial activities across the nation that measures the U.S. adult population's interest in, involvement with, and experiences with entrepreneurship. The Pre-Conference Workshop, entitled "Understanding and Using the Entrepreneurship Data in the Population Survey," is designed to introduce researchers to this robust and unique data source and facilitate their use of it.

    In this session, the Kenan Institute's Managing Director, David Knowles, and Director of Research Services, Ashley Brown, will share about how the Kenan Institute partners with academic researchers to translate and disseminate research, as well as the value that research has on both business and policy audiences. They will discuss ways that PhD students and early career researchers can work with their institutions to develop and promote their research. They will be joined by Travis Howell, assistant professor of strategy at UC Irvine and former Kenan-Flagler PhD student, who will speak to his experience of supporting translational work during his time as a PhD student. The session will include a short presentation and then time for a Q&A. Samples of the Institute's work in translational entrepreneurship research can be found here.
