The Economics of Entrepreneurship

The 2017 Econ Conference presented by the Department of Management at University of Toronto Scarborough Thursday, May 25, 2017


noun  en·tre·pre·neur \ˌäⁿn-trə-p(r)ə-ˈnər, -ˈn(y)u̇r\
one who organizes, manages, and assumes the risks of a business or enterprise in the hopes of making profits.


The Department of Management at University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC) has organized a day-long conference focusing on the economics of entrepreneurship. Given that the economists in the Department of Management at UTSC are interested in entrepreneurship and have contributed to this stream of literature in such areas at industrial organization, international trade, and development economics, we have asked leading researchers in these areas to present their high calibre work that policy makers and others may find salient to policy debates.

These presentations will be primarily targeted to academics and others who are interested in economic modeling and statistical techniques.
We hope that you will join us at the conference on the UTSC campus. The conference organizers gratefully thank the UTSC Department of Management, the Offices of the Vice-Principal Research, and the Dean and Vice-Principal (Academic) of UTSC, Rotman Institute for International Business and the Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Rotman for their generous support of our 2017 conference.
