The E&I special interest group aims to connect those involved in the research, teaching and practice of entrepreneurship and innovation. The world is changing, and the pace of change is increasing all the time. We need people to behave entrepreneurially so that New Zealand can shape what comes next, shape change, rather than merely reacting to what's already out there. Business research and education can help create opportunities, start new ventures and make new enterprises grow.
