Demands and wishes for sustainability come from many places. Consumers and businesses worldwide are preoccupied with taking social and environmental considerations, and start-ups and existing businesses must consider how to respond to – or perhaps lead – the sustainability agenda. Several studies show that entrepreneurship is essential for advancing sustainability on several dimensions (Cohen & Winn, 2007; Dean & McMullen, 2007; Muñoz & Cohen, 2018; Muñoz & Dimov, 2015). However, there are dilemmas and challenges, and even defining or understanding what sustainability is – or should be – is not clear-cut.

The track ‘Sustainability in Entrepreneurship and Small Business’ welcomes conceptual as well as empirical contributions about sustainability in a broad sense. We look forward to constructive discussions about conceptual and theoretical issues as well as cases and quantitative studies dealing with sustainability in entrepreneurship and small business management.
