2016 Best Entrepreneurship Paper Awards for JMU faculty research in entrepreneurship

This spring, the Center for Entrepreneurship announced a new incentive to promote entrepreneurship-related research at JMU. The Best Entrepreneurship Paper Award recognizes JMU faculty members who have published entrepreneurship-related research in a scholarly article between January 2013 and January 2016. Up to three articles, submitted by the author(s), may be selected as winners of the award. The JMU-affiliated authors of the winning articles then receive recognition on the Center for Entrepreneurship Faculty Research Wall and a $1,000 honorarium.

Four JMU faculty members were selected as winners of the Best Paper awards: Dr. Margaret Sloan (School of Strategic Leadership Studies); Dr. Scott Gallagher (Management); and co-authors, Dr. Kyle Seifert (Biology) and Dr. Kevin Caran (Chemistry), who shared an award. Citations for and links to the winning articles can be found below.

Congratulations to the winners of these awards! The Center for Entrepreneurship thanks Drs. Sloan, Gallagher, Seifert, and Caran for their contribution towards research in entrepreneurship, and for representing JMU’s dedication to entrepreneurship.
