Ivey Institute for Entrepreneurship




The Pierre L. Morrissette Institute for Entrepreneurship endeavors to be the premier entrepreneurship centre in Canada and respected throughout the world. The institute’s goal is to serve entrepreneurs from start-up to succession.


The Institute for Entrepreneurship works with students to build a foundation from which to successfully launch new businesses; with Canada’s best entrepreneurs to take their businesses to the next level; and with business families to facilitate a successful transition to next generation or next opportunity. The Institute supports all of this work through attention to research in areas of high growth and entrepreneurial learning.


The Entrepreneurship Cross-Enterprise Leadership Centre is the Institute’s research arm, which serves as a forum for faculty and doctoral candidates with a diverse range of research interests to cultivate collaborative theories, develop teaching cases and advance research for publication in peer-reviewed journals. The Centre is also involved in disseminating the work of its members through academic conferences, workshops, media and outreach. In June 2014, the Centre will co-host the 34th annual Babson College Entrepreneurship Research Conference (BCERC) and Doctoral Consortium.
