This event would not be possible without the sponsorship of the Observatory AMAROK, to support entrepreneurship research at the university of Montpellier.

We would like to thank Montpellier Business School and LabEx Entreprendre (University of Montpellier) for their sponsorship to support the 2024 Health in Entrepreneurship Conference.

An essential topic.

Entrepreneur health and well-being is broadly relevant to nearly every aspect of entrepreneurship, ranging from how individuals motivate themselves to pursue entrepreneurial endeavours to how they cope with the stresses and pressures inherent in entrepreneurial activities.

There has been a steady increase in research on entrepreneurial health and well-being, which was further accelerated by the Covid-pandemic. This has brought the importance of mental and physical health for individuals, entrepreneurs, and societies into sharp focus. However, despite this increased interest, there remain important unanswered research questions, complexities, and boundary conditions surrounding the relationship between entrepreneurship and individual health that merit further exploration.

By connecting researchers from different disciplines, we intend to help advance ongoing conversations regarding the nature and scope of entrepreneurship and founder health.

Keynote speakers

Day One: Presentations and paper development workshop (PDW)

Presentations of current research on the interaction of health and entrepreneurship, followed by a paper development workshop:

  • Phd students are highly encouraged to participate to this PDW to share their ongoing works in the field of ‘health in entrepreneurship’. This PDW will be the opportunity to have feedback from senior researchers on this important topic.
  • The PDW will also be the opportunity to all participants to share their ongoing research. A special issue on this topic is in negotiation and presenters of high-quality research will be encouraged to submit their work to this potential special issue.

Day Two: Presentations and Discussion

Presentations of current research on the interaction of health and entrepreneurship, followed by a discussion of potential projects and collaborations on ‘Health in Entrepreneurship’ research.

We will also announce the next ‘Health in Entrepreneurship’ Forum.
