The conference will take place on the 25th and 26th of May 2020 at the University in Mannheim.

The conference has the main theme of: „Exploring Entrepreneurial Ventures, Family Firms, and Hidden Champions“. It is intended for experts representing research and teaching interests with the field of business and economic SME research and related disciplines (eg, sociology, psychology, economic history, etc.) as well as to those interested in politics, associations and corporate practice. In thematic lecture blocks the challenges, new perspectives and opportunities for owner-and family-run enterprises and small and medium-sized enterprises are dealt with in depth. In addition, a general lecture block for SME research is offered. In the case of a sufficient number of suitable submissions an English track is planned.

We would be pleased to welcome you to the 6th research forum on Mittelstand!
