    Hi could you please post this notice to your members on behalf of the AMD editors?



    Contestants Needed for Shark Tank – A Paper Development Workshop for Academy of Management Discoveries (AMD)

    While in Chicago for the AOM Annual Meeting, participate in the highly regarded "AMD Shark Tank." Like the reality TV show, participants will "pitch" their paper ideas to a panel of leading management scholars who will then, along with the audience, be asked to vote for the most promising papers. If you are interested in being "on the show," submit an extended abstract of your proposed paper (up to four double-spaced pages for the abstract). From the pool of submissions, the AMD editor team will select finalists to serve as contestants. Each contestant will be given 5 to 6 minutes (no more than 4 power point slides) to summarize the study during the live session (i.e., make the pitch). Esteemed panelists will then be given a few minutes to give quick, constructive, and perhaps humorous feedback for each paper. Submit your extended abstracts by 8 July 2024 via

    Organizers – Michael Malgrande, AMD Senior Managing Editor
