The journal name relates to Harvard Business School's understanding of "The Entrepreneurial Venture" (Sahlmann/Stevenson/Roberts/Bhidé), the concept of entrepreneurship not only limited to new ventures/start-ups, but further understood as the concentration of opportunity/growth/value creation regardless of company size, age or kind. Hence, IJEV addresses organisational processes surrounding these concepts: from an idea to an innovation. To bridge the gap between innovation and entrepreneurship research, IJEV emphasises implications of this new knowledge for researchers, managers, public policy makers and business educators.


 Topics covered include

  • Opportunity: identification; recognition; creation; selection; exploitation
  • Growth: management of rapidly growing enterprises; control
  • Value creation: for owners; for customers; other stakeholders; society
  • Entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship
  • New venture creation
  • Management of technology and innovation
  • New product development and creativity
  • SME management
  • Entrepreneurial and small enterprise finance
  • Crowdsourcing and crowdfunding
  • Family business
  • Gender and diversity
  • Global entrepreneurship and internationalisation
  • Public policy, the economy, and the small enterprise
  • Business and organisational failure

More on this journal...

The objective of IJEV is to provide an international forum in the field of management with particular focus on the key drivers of innovation and entrepreneurship by publishing high quality research articles. It also aims to promote and coordinate developments in these fields of management. As these areas have both industrial and societal implications, IJEV encourages the broadening and deepening of thought in these fields.

Furthermore, IJEV has been established to be an effective channel of communication between researchers, managers and policy makers, as well as others concerned with the complex and dynamic role of opportunity, growth and value creation in society. The international dimension is emphasised in acknowledgement of the growing globalisation of business and management and in order to overcome cultural and national barriers.


IJEV provides a vehicle to help academics, professionals, researchers and policy makers, working in the field of innovation, entrepreneurship, strategy and business educationk to create and disseminate quality knowledge. The journal also provides a forum to allow interested parties to learn from each other's work.


IJEV publishes original research: conceptual papers, empirical papers, review papers, case studies, book reviews and commentaries. Special Issues devoted to important topics in entrepreneurship and related topics will be published occasionally.
