    „Mastering the Digital Transformation: Corporate Entrepreneurship as a Fast Track to Innovation”

    Digital technologies are currently causing a dramatic transformation of established industries. Entrepreneurs exploit the resulting manifold opportunities to test new business solutions and new business models. As a consequence, established firms such as medium-sized companies need to react to the potentially disruptive competition through entrepreneurial and innovative initiatives. Against this background, the G-Forum 2018 consequently addresses the numerous questions, opportunities and approaches that arise from this challenge for entrepreneurs, established companies and entrepreneurship research.

    In addition to submissions addressing the guiding theme of the conference, the conference organizers expressly welcome any submission that corresponds to the three main thematic fields of the FGF e.V. These are the topics
    • Entrepreneurship
    • Innovation
    • SMEs

    In this way, the G-Forum will fulfill its role as a central platform for the scientific community to exchange views on the current state of scientific discussion.
