Swedish Entrepreneurship Forum (previously know as FSF) is a network organization with the aim
- to serve as a bridge between the small business research community and all agents active in development of new and small enterprises.
- to initiate and disseminate research relevant to policy in the fields of entrepreneurship, innovation and SME.
- to offer entrepreneurship researchers a forum for idea sharing, to build national and international networks in the field and to bridge the gap between research and practical application.
The Swedish Entrepreneurship Forum is one of three organizations behind the most prestigious international research prize in the field, the Global Award for Entrepreneurship Research.
