Welcome to the Global Conference on Small & Medium-sized Enterprises and Entrepreneurship 2010. This year, this quality global conference will be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on August 26 & 27. The 2010 conference is another opportunity for small business, family business and entrepreneurship researchers, practitioners and policy makers to meet and discuss developments in the field and how to improve managerial practices, research and policy making. Known for its quality and collegiality, the conference provides an environment for early career researchers and more experienced academics to network and freely interact and strike collaborations in areas of mutual interest. Participants will also have an opportunity to experience first hand, the beauty of Kuala Lumpur. We look forward to welcoming you to Kuala Lumpur and eventually leaving with you an indelible experience of Malaysian warmth and hospitality.
