The Anderson Center’s research goals are two-fold:
1. To help entrepreneurs be more successful
2. To help communities invest more wisely in support services and infrastructure that has the highest ROI
To achieve these goals, the Anderson Center supports UT entrepreneurship researchers through the Anderson Center Research Fund and partnering with academic departments to promote interdisciplinary research.
Anderson Center Research Fund
The Anderson Center Research Fund was formed with the objective of advancing the quality and quantity of UT-generated research on entrepreneurship and innovation. The program facilitates annual research awards, an entrepreneurship distinguished speaker series, and attendance at national entrepreneurship conferences. For more information about the Anderson Center Research Fund, contact the center’s Executive Director.
The Haslam College of Business will host the Babson College Entrepreneurship Research Conference in 2023. Babson College established the Entrepreneurial Research Conference to provide a dynamic venue where academics and real-world practitioners, through spirited dialogue, could link theory and practice. Each year, the Conference attracts more than 350 entrepreneurial scholars who come to hear the presentation of more than 220 papers.
