Institute for an Entrepreneurial Society (IES)

Mission
The Institute for an Entrepreneurial Society’s mission is to produce high-quality evidence based research on the political economy of entrepreneurship, educate future thought leaders in the field, and engage the academic community in explorations of the entrepreneurial society.  IES scholars will examine the institutions that foster societal well-being and promote productive entrepreneurship.

Vision
IES envisions an entrepreneurial society in which the market process generates innovation, opportunities and economic growth, as well as a society in which entrepreneurial innovation is supported by institutions that unleash human creativity and productivity. 

By cultivating people motivated to explore the characteristics that contribute to an entrepreneurial society and offering a venue in which those ideas are shared and promulgated, IES seeks to inform the future direction of the growing scholarly discipline of entrepreneurship studies.
