About this book

This book examines the relationship between entrepreneurship, growth and regional aspects of business. The text offers two broad perspectives of entrepreneurship, a historical one and a comparative perspective. In the historical part, several examples of the co-operation between regional aspects and aspects of entrepreneurship are presented. The second part shows different aspects of entrepreneurship in a more and more globalizing world. Networking, the relationship between clusters and business innovation, economic transition and the links between social capital and business competitiveness are some of the topics.

Reviews

From the reviews: “This book provides an … overview of the modern concepts of entrepreneurship and those aspects related to regional economics. … Relevance is given to a must-reading article for all those in charge to develop regulatory systems encouraging entrepreneurship within fragile environments. … In summary, I would propose this book as a broad and rich overview on Entrepreneurship and Business from a regional perspective. … highly recommended.” (Teresa de Noronha Vaz, Papers in Regional Science, Vol. 89 (1), March, 2010)
