Letter from the editors.
Welcome to the Entrepreneurial Executive. We are confident that this volume continues our practice of bringing you interesting, insightful and useful articles by entrepreneurs and scholars.
The EE is an official journal of the Academy of Entrepreneurship[R], a non-profit association of scholars and practitioners whose purpose is to advance the knowledge, understanding, and teaching of entrepreneurship throughout the world. It is our objective to expand the role of the EE, and to broaden its outreach. We are interested in publishing articles of practical interest to entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial scholars, alike. Consequently, we solicit manuscripts from both groups.
The Entrepreneurial Executive is funded by the proceeds of membership dues and conference registration fees at Academy of Entrepreneurship[R] and Allied Academies meetings. We do not receive funding support from any university or agency. We encourage readers to become members of the Academy and to attend conference meetings. Upcoming conferences are announced on the Allied Academies home page: www.alliedacademies.org. In addition, information about the organization, its affiliates and the journals of the affiliates is displayed, as are instructions for submitting manuscripts for consideration.
The manuscripts contained in this issue were double blind reviewed by the Editorial Board members. Our acceptance rate in this issue conforms to our editorial policy of less than 25%.
