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
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.

Startup selection, success, and sustainability
4 October, 2023
A study in the International Journal of Entrepreneurial Venturing reports an analysis of a systematic research literature review and the outcome of expert interviews. It offers new insights into how incumbents choose startups for these collaborations, shedding light on the criteria and preferences that drive their choices. These results could have implications for both established businesses and those deeply involved in the startup ecosystem. Lucia Brandt and Stefanie Bröring of Ruhr University Bochum, Germany, Natalie Laibach of the Centre for Research in Agricultural Genomics in Barcelona, Spain, and Carolin Kamrath of the University of Bonn, Germany, found five key criteria that help incumbents evaluate startups for corporate venturing. First, they place a high priority on the startup's team, scrutinizing factors such as experience, commitment, professionalism, and technical expertise. A strong team underpins success in such partnerships. Secondly, they assessed the novelty of the startups' ideas and technologies, with particular emphasis on how well these align with the incumbent's own capabilities [...]More details...
Entrepreneurial adventures in India
21 November, 2023
In the world of entrepreneurship, the choice between venture capital and angel funding stands can be critical for the long-term success of a startup company. Traditionally, companies backed by venture capital are hailed as the frontrunners in success, overshadowing their angel-funded counterparts. However, a recent in-depth study of the Indian startup landscape published in the International Journal of Entrepreneurial Venturing, challenges the received wisdom and sheds new light on a more nuanced perspective. Praveen M. Kulkarni of the KLS Institute of Management Education and Research, Y.M. Satish of the MS Ramaiah Institute of Technology, and Prayag Gokhale of KLE Tech, Belagavi Campus, all in Karnataka, India, looked at the economically vibrant backdrop of Bengaluru. This region is perhaps India's leading startup hub with over 5000 ventures across many diverse sectors. The research investigates the performance of startups based on their funding sources, venture capital or angel funding. The findings have implications in this region and way beyond it [...]More details...
Encouraging the affordable innovators
22 November, 2023
Research in the International Journal of Entrepreneurial Venturing has looked at the dynamics of affordable innovations and investments and shed light on the role played by products and services designed for economically constrained consumers. The research shows that contrary to a popular misconception that many innovations in this area are low-tech, they can encompass complex, tailored solutions addressing the specific needs of people of limited financial means. Nadine Gurtner and Sebastian Gurtner of Bern University of Applied Sciences in Switzerland and Ariane Segelitz-Karsten of the Friedrich Schiller University Jena in Germany distinguished between affordable and premium innovators in their study. The new work challenges previous studies that identified general drivers for innovative behaviour and instead emphasizes the need to recognize the unique factors that influence different types of innovation. The findings offer new insights for the innovating companies themselves, policymakers, and society in general [...]More details...
