We now begin our eighth year of editorship of The Journal of Entrepreneurial Finance & Business Ventures with some changes. Chunchi Wu has left the Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University and is now the Jeffery E. Smith Missouri Professor of Finance at the University of Missouri-Columbia. There have, in addition, been some changes to our editorial board over the last year. We welcome Wolfgang Bessler, at Justus Liebig University - Giessen, Susan Coleman of the University of Hartford, and Jinliang Li from Tsinghua University - Beijing, as editorial board members. Also of note was the last annual meeting of the Academy of Entrepreneurial Finance, which was hosted by Rassoul Yazdipour from the California State University, Fresno. We trust that our 20th annual conference, September 24-26, 2008 in Las Vegas, coordinated by Susan Coleman of the University of Hartford will be just as successful as our meetings of the past. Dean Melvin Stith of the Whitman School of Management, Syracuse University, has continued to provide excellent guidance as well as financial support.
