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.
