Call for Papers: „Advances in Sustainable Entrepreneurship”

Call for Papers: Special Issue of Administrative Sciences “Advances in Sustainable Entrepreneurship” Guest Editor: Jacob Hörisch, Alanus University Sustainable Entrepreneurship has the potential to contribute to the solution of environmental and social problems through entrepreneurial activity. Thereby, it aims at societal transitions towards more sustainability. Despite the enormous potential of sustainable entrepreneurship, the academic debate in this field has just begun to evolve, and, consequently, more research to advance the con-cept of sustainable entrepreneurship is needed. With reference to Dean and McMullen (2007, p. 58), sustainable entrepreneurship can be defined as an innovative “process of discovering, evaluating, and exploiting economic opportunities that are present in market failures which detract from sustainability“. It is not distinct from phenomena such as social and environmental entrepreneurship, but offers a sustainability perspective on these con-cepts (Thompson et al., 2011) and is therefore not restricted to profit-oriented organizations.
