An international conference for the top scholars in the area of sustainability, ethics, and entrepreneurship (e.g., social entrepreneurship, cause-based enterprises, B-Corps., impact investing, etc.). With the support of our founding institutions: Colorado State University and the University of Wyoming, together with Texas Tech University and St. Ambrose University, we organize the Annual SEE Conference & Symposium. The SEE Conference leads the advancement and accumulation of knowledge and practice about SEE-related topics. SEE invites scholars to share cutting-edge research, ideas, and theories across these interdisciplinary fields. The SEE also invites companies and managers to connect with scholars and build a worldwide community that advances the state of knowledge and practice on SEE-related issues.
Catering to early-stage research, the SEE is interested in radical, controversial, and “edgy” projects; novel, useful, and non-obvious research that challenge dogmas and is highly revelatory, even if not fully grounded in well-validated theory. The SEE Conference sessions afford open-ended discussions that are not available elsewhere.

SEE 2020: Feb 27 - Mar 1
Since 2012, the SEE Conference has become one of the world’s premier academic conferences on social, environmental, and sustainable entrepreneurship; business ethics; firm-community ties; prosocial action; impact investment; and corporate responsibility. The SEE Society invites scholars, managers and stakeholders to join the SEE2020, which will feature distinguished plenary speakers, a range of parallel paper sessions, and symposia, in a tropical resort setting.
We invite submissions of empirical research (including ethnographic and qualitative research) and theoretical contributions. We encourage the submission of early-stage work and provide a valuable forum that affords feedback on nascent and evolving research projects in important topics that may act as a precursor for a Special Issue in a premier journal.
