APS is pleased to announce an award recognizing and encouraging integrative research in the area of psychological science and entrepreneurship.
With the support of the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, the Psychological Science and Entrepreneurship Poster Award is intended to stimulate research in entrepreneurship, which is the capacity and willingness to develop, organize, and manage a business venture, along with any of its risks, in the pursuit of opportunity and innovation. (”Business” can mean a for-profit or nonprofit enterprise such as a startup web platform, retail operation, or service or product provider, among other things.)
There are many ways psychological science can be applied to entrepreneurship research. Learn more about the APS 2020 Psychological Science and Entrepreneurship Poster Award winners and their research projects in the July/August 2020 Observer story, Award-Winning Ideas from the APS Virtual Poster Showcase.
