About the conference

Conference Theme

Pioneered in 1998 by Prof. Hamid Etemad and his colleagues at McGill University Montreal, the McGill International Entrepreneurship Conference series has brought together insightful academic scholars, practitioners and policy makers with interests in international entrepreneurship, SME internationalization and export growth.

The aim of this annual conference is to invite research papers that examine and bring to light the frontier issues related to entrepreneurial internationalization and internationalization of entrepreneurially oriented firms in increasingly diverse, complex and fast-moving global markets. 

The theme of the 2019 conference is the opportunities and challenges facing such firms in the Fourth Industrial Revolution. In addition to a special session track on this theme, the conference offers two additional special session tracks:  International entrepreneurship in and from China and Asia, and Emerging and developing economies - Challenges and opportunities of international entrepreneurship. You can find more information about the three tracks in the Submission section.
