CEED 2022 Program

The increasing integration of new digital technologies into all areas of business and the constant digital innovation from all sectors have fundamentally transformed how entrepreneurs are creating and delivering value. These digital technologies are disrupting industries by destabilizing existing business models and changing the rules of the game. Existing evidence suggests that digital technologies enable new forms of innovation and entrepreneurial initiatives that cross traditional boundaries, and accelerate the inception, scaling and evolution of new ventures.

Digital transformation has profoundly affected businesses by introducing new business models, new types of products/services, and new types of customer experiences. We welcome papers that investigate this effect theoretically and empirically. We also welcome contributions on how existing companies are radically transforming themselves to succeed in the emerging digital world. We welcome scholars and practitioners around the world to join us in person, in Doha, to discuss the conference theme, which includes but are not limited to the subthemes in the conference tracks.
