Consider submitting to HICSS 2018 (to be held in Hawaii next January 3-6, 2018) mini-track on entrepreneurship by June 15th.

Knowledge management in an organization involves the collection, organization, and codification of information gained in day to day operations. It can be utilized to allow an organization to become more efficient and better prepared for the global environment. Specialized software tools are utilized to allow an organization to carry out knowledge management procedures and utilize them in an effective manner.


In contrast to the longer term view of knowledge management, entrepreneurship involves making short terms decisions based on limited available information and organizational history. Although one might argue that being an entrepreneur does not allow for proper knowledge management, but even a newly formed organization can learn from its mistakes and successes in the short run.


This HICSS mini-track seeks scholarly contributions and practitioner papers related to the intersection of Entrepreneurship and Knowledge Management. This includes case studies, in-depth data analyses, theoretical proposals and position papers related to the application of knowledge management concepts to entrepreneurial pursuits.

Submissions to the mini-track can be made at Select Entrepreneurship and Knowledge Management, mini track co-chairs:
