Call for Papers: New England Journal of Entrepreneurship Special Issue – Entrepreneurial Passion Nowadays, finding and living one’s passion is considered to be the driving force of a successful and fulfilling life. According to a survey among American youths, achieving one’s work passion is the number one priority over various life goals such as helping other people who are in need, or getting married (Horowitz et al., 2019). The emphasis on passion as a key to success also carries over to the literature on entrepreneurship. Many, including successful entrepreneurs such as Bill Gates, Elon Musk, and Steve Jobs have been characterized by being fiercely passionate about their career and have spoken about passion as a crucial ingredient of success. Combined with the rapid increase of entrepreneurship as a cornerstone of social and economic growth (Audretsch et al., 2006), research on entrepreneurial passion has proliferated over the past decade. Researchers have examined entrepreneurial passion as a crucial precedent for the foundation, development, and success of entrepreneurial ventures (De Mol et al., 2020; Drnovsek et al., 2016; Mueller et al., 2017; Pollack et al., 2020) and various frameworks on passion (e.g., work passion, dualistic model of passion, and perceived passion) have been applied to research entrepreneurial passion. Although the attention on the topic is increasing, the research on entrepreneurial passion is still at its beginning stage (Cardon et al., 2017; Murnieks et al., 2020). The main purpose of this special issue is to expand our theoretical and empirical knowledge on the topic of entrepreneurial passion. Potential themes could include, but are not limited to: * Passion orchestration: Orthogonal perspectives on different types of passion (e.g., dualistic model of passion, entrepreneurial passion, and work passion) * Antecedents of entrepreneurial passion (e.g., education, family background, industry background, and social capital) * Outcomes of entrepreneurial passion (e.g., diffusion, financial performance, entrepreneurial intentions, innovation, investments, organizational growth, entrepreneurial opportunity, and new firm establishment) * Dark side of entrepreneurial passion (e.g., burnout, stress, addiction, turnover, failure, workaholism, and family-related issues) * Entrepreneurial passion of various stakeholders (e.g., investors, customers, employees, suppliers, family members, politicians, professors, and students) * Cultural perspectives of entrepreneurial passion (e.g., cross-cultural comparison) * Domains of entrepreneurial passion (e.g., developing, inventing, founding, products, and habitual establishment) * Dimensions of entrepreneurial passion (e.g., intensive positive feelings and identity centrality) * Levels of entrepreneurial passion (e.g., individual-, team-, and organization passion) Submission and Review Process The submission deadline is September 1st, 2022.
