ERI Brownbag seminar


The TUM Entrepreneurship Research Institute (TUM ERI) brownbag seminar usually takes place on the first Thursday of every month. In the seminar our entrepreneurship scholars present research-related themes and current research work. We cover a broad range of topics in entrepreneurship, from cognitive processes of opportunity recognition, to strategic topics surrounding opportunity exploitation, and their respective consequences for personal, team, new venture outcomes. In that regard, the studies presented in the seminar can be equally conducted on individual, team, and organizational levels. We distinguish four types of presentations, as detailed below. Papers (full paper, early paper or project pitch) will be presented every even month while the themed brownbag seminars (4) will take place every odd month.

More specifically, the formats are as follows:

  1. full paper presentations including comments from the audience (60min; full paper)
  2. early paper presentations including comments from the audience (45-60min; paper with 5-7 pages similar to an SMS submission)
  3. project pitch including comments from the audience (30-60min; paper with 2 pages similar to a BCERC submission)
  4. themed brownbag including guided group discussion (30-60min) The goal is to share best practices in academic work (for example, our first themed brownbag was on the reviewing process).

If you are interested in attending or presenting, please get in touch with Niklas Hagenow ( Please feel free to share the information about this brownbag series with colleagues you think may be interested.
