Interest Groups: Public Policy
Group Pages

The Entrepreneurship and Public Policy Special Interest Group is a special interest group organized under the auspices of the Articles of Incorporation of the United States Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (USASBE) to promote and encourage the development and advancement of programs and services in the specific entrepreneurship field and to provide a forum for information exchange.

GROUP MISSION

The Entrepreneurship and Public Policy Special Interest Group is dedicated to promoting teaching and research focused on the relationship between public policy initiatives and the level, intensity, and characteristics of entrepreneurship in the economy. The Public Policy SIG aims to be a forum for USASBE members where substantive issues on public policy affecting small business and entrepreneurship can be explored, discussed, and debated from multiple points of view, with an emphasis on how these issues can become part of our teaching, research, and service.

The Public Policy SIG will work to encourage the creation and dissemination of

  1. basic, applied, and pedagogical research which explores the relationship between public policy and economic outcomes; and
  2. practical information, analysis and guidance for academics, policymakers, professional staff, opinion leaders, and market participants at the intersection of entrepreneurship, market activity, and political activity.

An important part of this effort will be

  1. the promotion of collaborative initiatives in new pedagogy, research, policy formulation, and other service among faculty and practitioners from multiple disciplines, and
  2. the identification and creation of professional development activities for USASBE members in the area of public policy entrepreneurship.
