First awarded in 2015, the Best OMT Entrepreneurship Paper recognizes a paper in the scholarly program that advances understanding of entrepreneurship drawing on organization and management theory.
Starting in 2020, OMT has been collaborating with Innovation: Organization and Management (IOM), a Routledge journal. Edited by Markus Perkmann and Nelson Phillips, the journal’s mission is “publishing outstanding research on innovation within and across organizations.”
IOM will be the exclusive sponsor of OMT’s annual Best Entrepreneurship Paper award.
