International Conference on 'Methodological Issues in Social Entrepreneurship Knowledge and Practice': Conference Invite


Date and time: Jan. 18, 2017 10:00AM - Jan. 20, 2017 6:00PM


As social entrepreneurship is strongly emerging as a field of practice and research, methodological choices and challenges have not been adequately paid attention both by practitioners and the academic community. To bring insights on many such new practices and research ideas, we at the Center for Social Entrepreneurship at the School of Management and Labour Studies, Tata Institute of Social Science, Mumbai, organize an International Conference on the theme Methodological Issues in Social Entrepreneurship Knowledge and Practice from January 18-20, 2017 at Mumbai with the following research questions for discussion,

  • Is complex nature of the subject a methodological issue?
  • Is the current eco-system of social entrepreneurship enough for creating innovative practices?
  • Is advancement of practice compelling scholars to search for new theoretical perspectives?
  • Is research in social entrepreneurship biased towards the success stories?
  • Is social impact the only tool to drive the research in social entrepreneurship?
  • How to conduct macro studies in social entrepreneurship?

We invite practicing managers, academicians, scholars and social workers from your organizations, schools, centers, departments and universities to join us at the Conference as delegates. The Conference will include expert lectures, presentations on scholarly work and practices in social entrepreneurship, open discussions and meeting of South Asian Network of Impact Master (SANIM) – a network of practitioners and academicians to promote ‘social impact’ across the functions in the business enterprises, academic institutions and non-profit organizations.

The conference registration is open now. We request you to register for the conference before 31 December, 2016. The conference registration fee is as follows, which covers conference kit, break fast, lunch, evening tea and snacks and dinner from January 17 evening to January 20, 2017 evening.
