The journal name relates to Harvard Business School's understanding of "The Entrepreneurial Venture" (Sahlmann/Stevenson/Roberts/Bhid), the concept of entrepreneurship not only limited to new ventures/start-ups, but further understood as the concentration of opportunity, growth and value creation regardless of company size, age or kind. IJEV addresses organisational processes surrounding concepts of opportunity, growth and value creation. To bridge the gap between entrepreneurship research and practice, 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
  • Intrapreneurship
  • New venture creation
  • Innovation (management)
  • New product development
  • SME management
  • Entrepreneurial and small enterprise finance
  • Family business
  • 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 the particular focus on the key drivers of entrepreneurship, opportunity, growth and value creation by publishing quality research articles. It also aims to promote and to 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 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 entrepreneurship, strategy, management and business education, to create and to disseminate quality knowledge. The journal also provides a forum to allow interested parties to learn from each other|s work.


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