Your ICSB 2016 registration includes access to all of our workshops. The facilitators of the Panel Studies of Entrepreneurial Dynamics workshop describe it as follows:

The only data sets that provide a description of the entrepreneurial process, or business creation, for representative samples of those in the venture creation process are those that have implemented the Panel Studies of Entrepreneurial Dynamics [PSED] protocols.

While the most extensive, fully documented data in the public domain are the two U.S. cohorts [PSED I, II], critical variables have been harmonized across five data sets representing four countries [Australia, China, Sweden, and the United States]. A two part, three hour workshop on the development of these data sets, their structure, and how to utilize them for analysis will be provided on 17-18 June 2016 as part of the ICSB annual conference.

Each participant is expected to have an explicit research question or topic for discussion in the second session, on 18 June 2016. This session will be devoted to discussions, led by the workshop team, on how the PSED data sets can help provide answers to each participant’s research issue. Participants will receive the most benefit from the second day workshop session if they have a laptop with the SPSS statistical package for the second day session.

This workshop will be held at the Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, New Jersey.
