Join us for the 8th Entrepreneurial Finance (ENTFIN) Conference on June 10-11, 2024, in Munich, Germany

Following the success of prior ENTFIN conferences, the Technical University Munich is proud to host the Entrepreneurial Finance Associations Annual Meeting, the 8th ENTFIN Conference in the city center of Munich, Germany.

We invite all papers that are related to entrepreneurial finance to be submitted to the 8th ENTFIN Conference at TUM. We wish to emphasize the disciplinary-spanning character of entrepreneurial finance research and therefore welcome submissions from economics, finance, strategy, and entrepreneurship angles. Topics of interests include everything related to entrepreneurial finance, including various markets, such as private equity and venture capital, crowdfunding and token offerings, or lending, as well as managerial topics, such as determinants of startup funding success and post-funding performance. We are particularly welcoming papers that focus on overarching topics applied to entrepreneurial finance, such as ESG and sustainability, blockchain / tokenization / web3, machine learning and artificial intelligence, quantum and cloud computing, innovation and patents, and genomics and biometrics.
