Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice (ETP) invites submissions to Virtual Special Issue on

Crowd-Funded Entrepreneurial Opportunities

Guest Editors:

Thomas H. Allison, Washington State University

Christina Guenther, WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management

Markku Maula, Aalto University

Jeffrey M. Pollack, North Carolina State University

Maija Renko, University of Illinois at Chicago

The topics that may be of particular interest to ie-scholars:

  • When and how do crowdfunding platforms help entrepreneurs raise capital across geographic and country barriers (e.g., Guenther, Johan, & Schweizer, 2018; Lin & Viswanathan, 2016)?
  • What are the differences and similarities of cross-border crowdfunding with, e.g., cross-border venture capital (e.g., Liu & Maula, 2016)?

Submission Process:

There is not a specific deadline for submission-it is an open call for this virtual special issue. Accepted articles will be published in the first available regular issue of ETP and will simultaneously appear in a special section (online) dedicated to VSIs (that is already populated with previous articles in ETP). Thus, the content of the special issue could be seen at any time and it will be continuously expanding (providing a valuable reference point for the field). The VSI format is optimal in that it operates on an open deadline, making the publication process more dynamic.
