The 11th International online scientific conference with the theme of »Sustainable entrepreneurship – Driver for growth« at DOBA Business School, brings together academics and lecturers, professionals and students from Slovenia and abroad. Its purpose is to discuss and demonstrate new insights and practices that will continue to ensure the important economic and social role of entrepreneurship in ensuring prosperity and success.
We believe that this is a great opportunity for all participants to share knowledge and learn from other's good practices.
Entrepreneurship in today's world has become extremely complex due to the rapid advancement of technology and the structuring of markets and society. On the one hand, this process reduces transparency, and on the other hand, it can only convince us of the importance of continuous progress. Tracking and participating in it will further determine the growth, survival or even collapse of companies in the future.
As also known from theory, due to changes in technology, entrepreneurial efforts change business and ultimately lead to social and political changes (Josip Županov). The paths of these changes do not always look positive, but technological and business innovation have so far been shown to lead to the achievement of the current high level of prosperity. Therefore, smart communities will create an appropriate climate that will enable entrepreneurship to grow and guide it to contribute to meeting common social, economic and sustainability goals.
The main purpose of the conference is to disseminate research results, exchange experiences and identify key issues, challenges and obstacles, with special focus on Sustainable Entrepreneurship, while also covering the fields of Management, Marketing and Economics. The organizer provides an interdisciplinary platform for all participants to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted in specific fields. The conference is an opportunity to promote and strengthen further cooperation and networking, and to allow for the exchange of ideas of researchers from different countries, from different research fields and from different levels of scientific and research careers. Given that DOBA Business School is one of the leading regional centres in the EU, where modern online study practice is being developed, the conference program will also place an emphasis on how to introduce and provide added value with the introduction of virtual education.

The conference Proceedings will include keynote speeches from renowned leaders in their fields and reviewed abstracts from contributors from different entrepreneurship ecosystems around the globe.
