The Conference Proceedings 2014
This Proceedings volume includes most of the papers, presented at the Sixth International Conference on Entrepreneurial/Managerial Innovative Strategies and Behaviour in Global Multicultural Environment, held between 9 and 12 September 2014 in Nessebar, Black Sea, Bulgaria. Some selected papers, presented at the conference, will be published in a special issue of the International Review of Entrepreneurship journal (IRE) in 2015.
The presented papers highlighted specific aspects of the main topic from different points of view in different contexts. First of all, we had internationally recognized keynotes such as Prof. Robert D. Hisrich (USA), Prof. David Smallbone and Prof. Ken O'Neill (UK) who put starting fuel in the engine of the conference presentations. Than in different parallel sections the authors presented interesting findings in the field of entrepreneurship and SMEs. Very important part of the conference was the round table for academicians and entrepreneurs from several countries to discuss how to find the bridge between science and practice.
The papers in the proceedings are organized in several sections: Management, Innovation and Growth of SMEs, Cultural Aspects of Entrepreneurship and SMEs, Entrepreneurship and SMEs Support, Entrepreneurship Education and Learning.
The overall impression by the participants online and after the conference, confirms this event as a remarkable place for discussions, exchange of scientific results and practical implications in the field. Let us say again like in previous conferences, the Sixth International Conference added also new value for networking, mutual understanding and future partnerships among the participants.
