January 5, 2022 USASBE Nation: 2022

2022

2021 has been a year of learning Greek letters, particularly Delta and Omicron. And while there are nine more letters in the Greek alphabet, here’s hoping we’re done with our lessons in Greek linguistics. Covid-19 required all of us to be pioneers in our own right the past couple of years, but entrepreneurship education has been a 75-year journey comprised of bold pioneers who persevered through many challenges. In 1947, the first entrepreneurship course was taught at Harvard University. Now over 3000+ institutions include entrepreneurship in some form (Liguori et al, 2018, EE&P Editorial). USASBE has been active and innovative in that journey for 41 of those 75 years. I had the great privilege of chatting last year with Frank Kiesner (retired, Loyola Marymount University), who was there for the founding of USASBE. He shared (and I paraphrase), “When we started USASBE we were the misfits. But we built a community of great people with passion and purpose. We believed entrepreneurship had an important place in the academy.” And it is as true now as it was then. We are now 900 members strong (perhaps still the misfits and weirdos?), I would argue that these are remarkably redeeming traits. And together we represent 360+ institutions and 90 practitioners and partners. We boldly explore and advance entrepreneurship education, breathing life and understanding into the important questions of how, why, what, where, and by whom. Ours are complex and impactful inquiries, and they allow each one of us to seek our own authentic selves as entrepreneurial educators. Thank you for continuing to learn, evolve, and endeavor to discover the best YOU that you can be!

USASBE has also evolved. The board worked diligently over the past year to charter and operationalize an inclusive governing committee structure, embracing the increased influence of the Special Interest Groups. We now have 51 diverse, talented individuals lending their collective voice and vision to set a course for USASBE’s innovation and impact on the field of entrepreneurship education. It is an exciting time (and unprecedented opportunity) for members to get involved with an organization that intentionally supports bold thinking. It’s who we are. It’s what we do. It’s in our DNA. Finally, a big thanks to our 2022 Host Sponsors: East Carolina University and NC State University. With their combined, encouraging partnership, we are set to embark on a highly engaging hybrid conference. And, although there are so many individuals to thank for bringing this conference to life, Jennifer Capps (NC State) deserves a special shout-out for her pioneering spirit and persevering mindset. With any major undertaking there are always last-minute curveballs, and she has stepped up to the plate with remarkable resilience. USASBE Nation, let’s get ready to enjoy USASBE 2022: Pioneer & Persevere! Best always,

Julienne Shields President/CEO

Welcome to the great state of North Carolina. I trust you’ll find your visit hospitable and your time at USASBE 2022 informative and beneficial. The agenda is impressive as it showcases the discussions, strides, and advancements in higher education and entrepreneurship. I’m very proud that East Carolina University’s Miller School of Entrepreneurship is a co-host of this event and leading some of those discussions. Their work on our campus and the region exemplifies the theme of USASBE 2022: Pioneer and Persevere. The Miller School has been a pioneer in developing entrepreneurs who help revitalize and provide much needed services in rural areas. That’s why after just five years in existence, it was named to the Princeton Review’s Top 50 programs for entrepreneurship and has been recognized by USASBE and the Small Business Administration. Our students see entrepreneurship as a career and economic engine that creates jobs and sustains businesses. Our annual Pirate Entrepreneurship Challenge has featured more than 350 student teams that represent about 50 majors. Soon, the Isley Innovation Hub will give students a new place they can collaborate and create ideas that could very well end up in future Pirate Challenges. It’s set to open in the spring of 2022, and will feature the technologies, spaces and resources needed to encourage the spirit of entrepreneurship on campus. Through the Miller School’s Crisp Small Business Resource Center, we are awarded grants and are partnering with our friends at NC State and other institutions to help today’s small businesses be vital for tomorrow. We are working directly with entrepreneurs, providing the resources needed to grow their business regionally and globally. Our very generous alumni support the College of Business’ efforts and make it possible to focus on ECU’s mission of student success, regional transformation and public service. I want to wish all of you nothing but the best for you and your institutions. As we move forward with some certainties and some questions in 2022, I’m encouraged that USASBE and its members are doing everything possible to advance entrepreneurship education. Enjoy the conference! Sincerely,

Philip Rogers, EdD Chancellor

On behalf of NC State Entrepreneurship, we’d like to welcome you to USASBE 2022 Pioneer and Persevere! In partnership with ECU and USASBE, NC State Entrepreneurship is proud to welcome you to our campus. The past few years have tested the resilience of entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship educators alike. We have pioneered through the challenges and persevered through the uncertainty to find ourselves together again in Raleigh to celebrate the future. We were apprehensive about such a big undertaking during a time of so many unknowns, but we also love a good challenge with exceptional partners! NC State has a long history of engagement with USASBE. Whether through research development, program development or course and curriculum development, USASBE provides an outlet to share, learn and disseminate best practices while forging productive relationships across academic institutions. We have benefited greatly from these activities in the past, and are excited to be a part of the progress moving forward. This year’s conference is sure to be exciting! We are trying new things, creating new practices, and honestly, expecting the unexpected as any entrepreneur would do. Through a partnership with Owl Labs, the support of too many volunteers to count, a strong leadership team and a little bit of luck, we have planned a hybrid conference that we hope will be a model for the future. Take time to cherish these times together and celebrate the amazing peer network of the USASBE nation. For those attending face to face, we hope that you enjoy your stay in Raleigh and that you take some time to experience the wonderful ecosystem of our campus and our community. Sincerely,

Dr. Thomas K. Miller III Senior Vice Provost for Entrepreneurship Executive Director, NC State Entrepreneurship McPherson Family Distinguished Professor of Engineering Entrepreneurship Associate Dean, College of Engineering

Troy is the first female to found a whiskey distillery in America. Asheville Distilling Company was created in 2010 and now provides eight-year-old award-winning whiskey to its customers in the southeast. Troy, a mother of two special needs sons, founded Braini, LLC a natural brain supplement company in 2017. Two double-blind placebo-controlled clinical trials at UNCA have proven Braini works to improve cognitive performance. Braini’s clinical trials are in editorial review for publication. Their statistically significant findings should be published in 2021. Building Better Brains of Better Lives is what drives Troy these days.

Cindy is an American entrepreneur known for founding Sprout Pharmaceuticals. She then

founded The Pink Ceiling, which invests in companies founded by, or delivering products for, women. The Pink Ceiling’s affiliated incubator, called the “Pinkubator” because of its female focus, is located in Raleigh, North Carolina. The “Pinkubator” was established to provide female-focused entrepreneurs with direct access to mentors, investment opportunities, and business development guidance. Cindy has made waves, and made her own success, creating mission-driven companies that deliver big. Her results have become a widely covered business success story featured in major media outlets. She is most proud of helping others take command. The profoundly positive impact those companies have made in people’s lives is what keeps her coming back for more.

Learning Journey “Cow to Cone” Ice Cream and Entrepreneurship at NC State NC State has a long history of ice cream! It’s only natural for a university with a 329-acre dairy farm and a nationally recognized food science program to make ridiculously delicious ice cream. True to its tasty roots, Howling Cow® ice cream is still made on campus in the Feldmeier Dairy Processing Lab, part of the Department of Food, Bioprocessing, and Nutrition Science. The milk and cream come directly from over 300 NC State cows in Raleigh, North Carolina. This tour will take you directly to the farm where you will experience the first steps in the ice cream making process! At the Dairy Education Center and Creamery, you will learn about NC State’s very own entrepreneurial venture, Howling Cow Ice Cream, and you will get to indulge in a cup or cone of the stuff that people have been known to stand in line for over two hours to buy at the local state fair! Includes ice cream and transportation. Additional fee and registration required ($75)

12 - 4 PM

Learning Journey Arts Entrepreneurship in Raleigh Raleigh is known by locals as a great place to immerse yourself in arts-related ventures from artist galleries to theater to dance to music and more!

Includes lunch and transportation. Additional fee and registration required ($75)

1 - 5 PM

Learning Journey BBQ and Brews North Carolina is a hot spot for both breweries and bar-b-que, and it just so happens that these two make a perfect pair! This tour will not only allow you to engage in the very serious debate between eastern style or western style bar-b-que, but it will also allow you to learn about the history, art, and tradition of this tasty treat in NC! In addition, this tour will introduce you to the art of craft brewing, which can be found in the many breweries throughout Raleigh. We suggest a small breakfast so that you have room to enjoy a sampling menu during these visits! Includes tasting menu and transportation. Additional fee and registration required ($100)

Summit Shifting Entrepreneurship from the Perimeter to the Core The world is changing at an unprecedented rate, and the mindset that once enabled us to succeed is rapidly becoming obsolete. If we are to empower the next generation to adapt and thrive amidst an ever-changing world, we must recognize the broader implications of the entrepreneurial mindset as a teachable cognitive framework that every student needs. In this session, panelist and attendees will explore opportunities and best practices for shifting entrepreneurship from the perimeter to the core of the way education operates: • What is the current state of entrepreneurship education? • What are the opportunity costs of the status quo and who is being left out? • How can we redefine entrepreneurship education in a way that anyone can embrace?

Competitive Experiential Exercises 1A Introspective Opportunities: Student Self-Assessment & Emotionally Intelligent Business Ideas Entrepreneur Self-Assessment and Opportunity Discovery Mark Gagnon, Pennsylvania State University Students assess their own interests and expertise and match these with entrepreneurial opportunity. During this class exercise, individuals are asked to write down what they enjoy and their areas of expertise or developing expertise. After their selfassessment, students are then asked to brainstorm matching societal needs that may provide compensation.

Emotionally Intelligent Ideation

Patnode Jr., York College of Pennsylvania This exercise improves student ideation and comfort with brainstorming in a positive and fun way. Students work in teams and apply improvisation principles to develop a business solution that addresses a target market’s pain point. They participate in the practice of entrepreneurship through improvisation while developing skills and having fun.

Showing students that creativity begins with their mindset Kirk Heriot, Columbus State University In this experiential exercise, students are shown they are capable of being creative if they start with the right mindset. The instructor uses both individual and group activities to demonstrate in a fun atmosphere that one’s ability to be creative is entirely due to one’s mindset.

Justin Wilcox, TeachingEntrepreneurship.org If you’re bored hearing the same student business ideas every term, this exercise is a first step to helping your students ideate unique business models that are based on real customer needs.

Competitive Research Papers 1A Difference-Making in Decision-Making: Legitimating, Work Design, and Program Impact Work Design in a Scale-Up Firm James Bort, University of Missouri | Johan Wiklund, Syracuse University | MK Ward, Curtin University | Mi Hoang Tran, Syracuse University Scale-ups fundamentally alter the way work is accomplished and offer a view of what the jobs of the future will look like as they become industry leaders. We propose a dynamic yet systematic and replicable approach to discovering emergent factors of work design, generating new theoretical insights, and informing practice.

How Founders Orchestrate StartUp Legitimation Mechanisms: Role of Organizational Identification Emilia Karpinskaia, HSE University | Galina Shirokova, HSE University | Tatiana S. Manolova, Bentley University The study provides valuable insights on the startup legitimation. Going beyond the generally accepted institutional perspective, it digs deeper into the identity-related and behavioral determinants of the process. The findings reveal that founders orchestrate the legitimation mechanisms through applied behavioral logics (effectuation/causation) being directed by their organizational identification.

The Effectiveness of University Entrepreneurship Activities on Student Start-Up Behaviour

The Adverse Effect of Causal Entrepreneurial Process on Innovativeness and Social Capital in New Ventures

Jiejie Lyu, Deborah Shepherd, Kerry Lee, University of Auckland

Parisa Haim Faridian, San Diego State University

The primary purpose of this study is to examine the effectiveness of various types of university 2022 entrepreneurship activities on student startup behaviour. This study aims to increase our understanding of the crucial elements within university entrepreneurial ecosystems and how various entrepreneurial activities within these ecosystems impact student venture creation.

Competitive Research Papers 1B Practical Potpourri: Blended Approach to Design Thinking, Social Capital’s Impact on Innovativeness, and Common Language for Competency-Based Education Mediating two distinct perspectives on design thinking through game-based learning in business education Wilian Gatti Junior, Rennes School of Business | Beaumie Kim, University of Calgary We present a pedagogical activity that attempts to unify two distinctive discourses related to design thinking. One side defines the way designers think and work; the other considers design thinking as a method to innovate and create value. An experiential, playful, and authentic learning process could combine both perspectives.

This study examines the direct effect of three different dimensions of causation on innovativeness, in addition to the indirect moderation effect on the link between dimensions of social capital and innovativeness in new ventures. The findings suggest the potential for an adverse effect of causation on innovativeness.

Competency-Based Training and Education of Entrepreneurs: A Structural Model Mark Schenkel, Belmont University | Rodney R. D’Souza, Texas Christian University | Jeffrey S. Hornsby, University of Missouri - Kansas City | Rebecca White, University of Tampa Competency-based education is increasingly seen as a means to developing individuals’ entrepreneurial potential. This research presents a comprehensive structural model aimed at illuminating the multidimensional nature of entrepreneurial competency as a construct and its potential to provide common language for building and assessing impactful entrepreneurship programs.

The Biggest Decisions: Where to Grow? What to Change?

Measuring Societal Impact: A Civic Wealth Perspective

Developing successful next generation members: Does working outside really help? Juliana Binhote, University of Louisville | Carol Wittmeyer, St. John Fisher | Isabel C. Botero, University of Louisville | Joseph H. Astrachan, Kennesaw State University Many family firms require next generation family employees to work outside the business to be successful leaders. This conventional wisdom is not supported by research. Instead, family leaders should identify competencies and create individualized next generation leadership development plans. These may include experiences outside and inside the firm.

The Entrepreneurial Ecologies: A Dynamic Decision-Making Strategy for Emerging Entrepreneurs in the Arts and Other NonBusiness Disciplines Gary Beckman, North Carolina State University A presentation describing the Entrepreneurial Ecologies of the Arts (EEA): a dynamic and customizable hierarchy of customizable ecological systems. Ecologies are used to determine the potential impact of changes to a venture’s ecological structure and to help emerging entrepreneurs make better and more informed venture decisions.

Tom Lumpkin, University of Oklahoma | Sophie Bacq, Indiana University

Practitioners and researchers lack standard measures and methods for assessing societal impact. We propose civic wealth as a dependent variable that links inward-looking (what happens in the change process) and outward-looking (with what effects) of societal change initiatives. We suggest measures for well-being, intellectual and affective capacities, and material resources.

This simple change results in pitches that are more passionate and realistic because they reflect the real-world skills students develop in class.

Funding Issues in Founding and Co-Founding 2022 Turnaround strategies of family businesses: A bibliometric analysis of the extant literature

Giacomo Laffranchini, Si Hyun Kim, University of La Verne We propose a systematic review of the extant literature on turnaround in family firms. We take a bibliometric approach to chart current knowledge and reveal important gaps in that knowledge. We 2022 propose several theory-driven research questions that may stimulate a more rigorous knowledge development in this all-important area of business.

A Safe Bet? How Selecting High Familiarity Cofounders Affects Dynamics, Satisfaction and Venture Performance Over Time Audra Quinn, Ivey Business School | Denis Grégoire, HEC Montréal | Darren Meister, Ivey Business School Is choosing a strong-tie cofounder really the safe bet? We develop a multilevel and longitudinal theory of cofounder dynamics, positing that familiarity may facilitate psychological safety and perceived equity justice among cofounders, lending to satisfaction and venture performance, but familiarity’s role in performance will diminish over time.

Our research approaches gender issues in crowdfunding by examining how gender match/ mismatch of funders and founders can influence the funding intention. Employing attractionselection-attrition model, we propose a genderfunding typology to argue that crowdfunders are attracted by the founders of a project and thereafter they evaluate and fund the project.

Entrepreneurial turnaround of family firms: Recovery responses to organizational decline Giacomo Laffranchini, Si Hyun Kim, University of La Verne In this study we adopt the recently proposed two-stage gable-model to investigate strategic decisions pertaining to entrepreneurial turnaround in family firms. In doing so, we bridge a significant gap in the turnaround literature; to date scholarly efforts have primarily focused on retrenchment as first response to organizational decline in family firms.

State of Veteran Entrepreneurship: Challenges and Barriers Mirza Tihic, Rosalinda V. Maury, Syracuse University

Veterans have engaged in entrepreneurial activity at higher rates than nonveterans. While veterans are driven and have entrepreneurial characteristics, they often lack the education and the know-how to establish, run, and sustain a business. This paper focuses on 2020 and 2021 National Survey of Military-Affiliated Entrepreneurship completed by 1,859 veterans.

Immigrant entrepreneurs in the U.S.: Firm performance based on entrepreneurial competencies Honghua Li, Morgan State University | Yemisi F. Awotoye, Gonzaga University | Robert P. Singh, Morgan State University In this paper, we develop a conceptual discussion and three propositions that immigrant-owned firm performance is influenced by proficiency in the host country’s language, knowledge about the host country, and cultural intelligence. Following a literature review and proposition development, implications, limitations, and future research directions are offered.

All of Matter of Perception: Social Entrepreneurship and Honest Incompetence Jeffrey Muldoon, Emporia State University | Vitaliy Skorodziyevskiy, Mississippi State University Social entrepreneurship has become an important research topic. There is a downside to social entrepreneurship, namely the idea that social entrepreneurs can be honestly incompetent, in that they try to solve social problems but fail to do so. We provide a discussion of why certain stakeholders would believe this.

Entrepreneurship as a Pathway into and out of Poverty: A Configuration Perspective

Competitive Research Papers

Unlocking Potential, Reshaping Perspective, and Revising Policy Are female entrepreneurs more effective in applying effectual logics? Birton Cowden, Kennesaw State University | Jintong Tang, Saint Louis University | Masoud Karami, University of Otago | Wenping Ye, Jinan University | Samel Adomako, University of Birmingham

Drawing on the entrepreneurial intentions and motivations literature together with personal values theory, we explore changes in the economic status of 83 individuals from low-income contexts in Spain. Results show three profiles of entrepreneurial intentions, motivations, and personal values associated with pathways into and out of poverty through entrepreneurship.

We propose that bringing gender roles into the application of effectuation is important because of the alignment between gender expectations and effectual logics. We find that female entrepreneurs apply effectuation more effectively than male entrepreneurs.

The Need for Public Policies to Increase Black Entrepreneurship: Addressing Economic Disparities through HBCU Programs Robert Singh, Morgan State University Economic policies have largely abandoned startup entrepreneurs, especially Black entrepreneurs, in 2022 favor of large firms. Following a literature review focused on reasons for the diminished rate of Black entrepreneurship and structural inequities, it is proposed that increased HBCU funding could address long-term inequalities and strengthen Black communities.

Emerging Research Papers Exploring Entrepreneurial Theories Evaluating the Intrapreneurial Orientation of Project Champions as a Factor in Influencing Project Success Robert Cooney, UNC Charlotte We propose a systematic review. The purpose of the research project is to design and test a conceptual framework that identifies the key characteristics of effective project champions (intrapreneurs) in terms of achieving entrepreneurial behavior, which in turn motivate their project teams to act entrepreneurially and contribute to project success.

An Application of the Theory of Entrepreneurial Differentiation

Development and Validation of the Entrepreneurial Process Orientation Scale David Jorgensen, Frances Fabian, University of Memphis | Ryan Schill, Utah Valley University | Ronei Leonel, Salisbury University The entrepreneurial process orientation (EPO) construct represents a novel method of characterizing entrepreneurs, deviating from the traditional entrepreneur/non-entrepreneur mold prevalent in the entrepreneurship literature. To facilitate quick, reliable, and valid understanding of one’s EPO, we aim to create and validate a new scale measuring the EPO construct.

Reflection Tools and Processes for Micro-Entrepreneurs and Founding Teams

Distractions and Savvy Goats: Entrepreneurship Is an Adventure!

Emotional Intelligence and the Alchemy of Reflection for Micro-Entrepreneurs Jennifer Madden, Linfield University | Montressa Washington, Shenandoah University

Fun and engaging group simulation that mimics real-world distractions while working on an important project that stimulates thoughtful reflection Anita Rose, Florida Gulf Coast University

Higher levels of emotional intelligence (i.e., emotional and social competencies) can have a positive impact on micro-entrepreneurs specifically and entrepreneurs in general. Practitioner-scholars use the power of reflective learning to develop a fillable pdf journal with key prompts, icons, and quotes to build the emotional intelligence of entrepreneurs.

Would you like to offer a fun and engaging group activity that includes real-world applications? This one-hour student project focuses on the art of collaboration, communication, creativity and critical thinking, emotional social skills, leadership, planning, and time management. This thoughtful transformational reflection gleans powerful lessons that improve collaboration and communication.

After action review used as reflective exercise in an entrepreneurial setting.

Climbing up the reflection mountain as a savvy goat!

Frank Marshall, Randal Schober, Point Loma Nazarene University

Rajiv Basaiawmoit, Aarhus University

Organizational learning is necessary for teams to continuously improve. One way to do this is using reflection. Although reflection is important, it is creating a process of reflection that is the key. The after action review is a proven tool that has reflection built into the process.

Experiential entrepreneurship education can sometimes be so practice oriented that the space for good quality reflections may be lost. This workshop tries to bring the emphasis on team reflections and process-embedded reflections in a gamified approach using a mountain and goat analogy. Teams will compete for scaling the reflection mountain as a savvy goat.
