We are currently experiencing significant macro-environmental changes that encompass various factors such as the advancements in AI, the impact of climate change, and the ongoing Ukraine war. In response to these transformations, a growing body of research is dedicated to understanding how these external enablers influence, shape, or amplify entrepreneurial activities. In line with this focus, we are pleased to announce the second workshop on 'External Enablement of Entrepreneurship,' which will be held under the subtheme of "external enablers of our time." This workshop aims to bring together experts and scholars who specialize in external enablers to provide valuable feedback on ongoing research projects and explore strategies for positioning and advancing research in this area. Moreover, the workshop offers participants the opportunity to present early-stage research ideas and receive constructive feedback on their current projects. By fostering collaboration and knowledge exchange, this workshop contributes to Jönköping International Business School's commitment to studying entrepreneurship in context. We are grateful for the generous sponsorship of the Media, Management, and Transformation Centre (MMTC), which supports the realization of this workshop.
