Academic Conference on “New economy and purpose-driven companies”
Thanks to the support of IDRC and several universities, Academia B is inviting researchers and students to present the results and/or the progress of their research on purpose-driven companies and its impact in the emergence of a new economy at the first «Global Academic Conference of the B Corps Movement”, to be held on November 13, 2018, in Puerto Varas, Chile.
The Conference will take place within the next Encuentro+B, an event that brings together B Corps, their partners and the B Community in Latin America, including academics.
We are especially interested in research, either quantitative or qualitative, that examines theoretical, methodological, and empirical aspects of the new economy and purpose-driven companies, regarding the solution to global problems.
In addition, to presenting ground-breaking research, the Academic Conference will provide opportunities for researchers to discuss data sources and methods for studying purpose-driven companies, provide feedback on their research in progress, and allow the academic community to develop a roadmap of current and future research opportunities.
Theoretical, empirical, experimental, and case study research contributions are welcome. All contributions should clearly address the practical and theoretical implications of the research reported.
