Kauffman Foundation: Entrepreneurship Research Portal

The Kauffman Foundation who a few years ago awarded my co-author, Scott Stern, a medal for for excellence in entrepreneurship research, have established a research portal. You can access it here. Lots of good material for those interested in all aspects of entrepreneurship.

As of Tuesday, September 30, 2008, the Entrepreneurship Research Portal (http://research.kauffman.org) will no longer be available. After that date, the data and information formerly available on the Research Portal will be found in two locations. The first is the newly designed Kauffman Foundation web site at http://www.kauffman.org, and the second is the Entrepreneurship Research & Policy Network (ERPN) - part of the Social Science Research Network (SSRN) - at http://www.ssrn.com/erpn.

For those not familiar with SSRN, it is a free resource where authors and researchers can post working papers, reports, journal articles, and research results. ERPN is sponsored by the Foundation to provide an online community for entrepreneurship research from all academic disciplines and the users of that information. Visit http://www.ssrn.com/erpn to access ERPN and to set up your free account. Authors have posted more then 6,000 papers/citations on ERPN since it was launched a year and a half ago.

The event and deadline database will be discontinued. Kauffman Foundation-specific events and deadlines can be found at www.kauffman.org. The best general entrepreneurship research and policy event and deadline notification service we are currently aware of is through the Academy of Management (http://www.aomonline.org/aom.asp?ID=203). Another resource is the National Dialogue on Entrepreneurship (NDE) (http://publicforuminstitute.org/nde), which will soon become the Policy Dialogue on Entrepreneurship.

Please contact me at mforman at kauffman.org with any questions.
