BeschreibungThis book presents the current state-of-the-art in all major and upcoming areas of entrepreneurship research. Thousands of scholars around the world are currently working to broaden our understanding of the entrepreneurial phenomenon. The disciplines involved are numerous, as are the topics of interest, with substantial efforts to enhance the existing knowledge. This book is specifically designed to facilitate high-level, high-intensity discussions and fruitful exchanges between scholars involved in entrepreneurship research. The articles address a variety of topics ranging from self-employment, technology, growth patterns and job creation, and success and failure rates, to historical, conceptual and comparative international approaches.
"This book takes entrepreneurship beyond the
individual, size of the venture, entrepreneurial personality, and looks at
entrepreneurship as a long term complex process that is heterogeneous, content
dependent with an emphasis on innovation and growth. A must read for
individuals interested in entrepreneurship, today and in the future, on a
domestic and global basis." - Robert D. Hisrich,
Director - Walker Center and Garvin Professor of Global Entrepreneurship,
Thunderbird School of Global Management
"Entrepreneurship is perhaps not just the most multifaceted but also the
most important concept of the modern socio-economic disciplines. This book
makes an invaluable contribution in this fascinating area: it presents a
multifaceted socio-economic examination of the impact of entrepreneurship for
growth." - Roy Thurik,
Erasmus School of Economics in Rotterdam and Montpellier Business School
