In this report, we outline the key insights gained at the “Hello Diversity! Conference” held in June, 2019, at the Freie Universität Berlin (Germany). The two-day event featured 14 talks from experts in academia and practice who shared their perspectives on how entrepreneurial diversity affects efforts to explore and exploit digital innovation opportunities. Their insights highlighted the lack of holistic knowledge on the topic, especially concerning the role that digital technologies play in fostering entrepreneurial diversity. The conference culminated in a “paperthon”, which kickstarted interdisciplinary research projects that focus on better understanding entrepreneurial diversity in the digital age.
