Entrepreneur and Innovation Exchange (EIX) aspires to be the #1 peer-reviewed resource for thought leadership in entrepreneurship and innovation for students, practitioners, and professors. To achieve this goal, we are building a platform where expert entrepreneurs, investors, and scholars can share insights to benefit the global community of entrepreneurs. 

For authors, we provide a fast peer review cycle and growing global readership that provides thought leaders with a means to quickly share insights with entrepreneurs across the globe. With the help of our authors, reviewers, and outstanding editorial team, the formula appears to be working. EIX continued to grow in traffic and impact in 2023, achieving 5.8 million page views. We are also closing in on 1,000 submitted articles since the EIX platform launched in spring of 2014.

Our 10 most popular articles in 2023 showed that EIX’s audience of founders, entrepreneurs, professors and students, and others in the entrepreneurial ecosystem, were focused on both age-old challenges -- getting money and managing resources – and the new disruptive power of AI and ChatGPT.

In an era where the option for remote work has become the norm at many companies, an EIX article by Lean Startup thought leader Steve Blank took a contrarian point of view – and became EIX’s best-read article in 2023, with 545,654 views.

Here are the 10 articles that attracted the most site visitors in 2023. Among them are articles that were published in prior years. On behalf of the editorial team at EIX, we hope you have a productive and successful year. If you are an author, please consider us as an outlet for your important work on entrepreneurship.
