Researchers at the TCC

The University of Alberta School of Business is recognized as a leader in research at the interface of entrepreneurship and organization & management theory. The TCC is one of five rotating sponsors of the West Coast Research Symposium (WCRS), co-organized with Stanford University, University of Southern California, University of Oregon and the University of Washington. The WCRS is one of the most prestigious, research-oriented technology entrepreneurship conferences in the world, regularly convening one hundred leading academics in innovation and entrepreneurship, including top global PhD candidates. Our engagement is a clear marker of stature in entrepreneurship research. In recent years, the WCRS has expanded to bridge research with leading entrepreneurship practice, including workshops with top practitioners like Steve Blank whose “lean entrepreneurship” is the most influential model used by startups today.
