About this book

This book proposes a comprehensive analysis of the existing schools of thought on technology-driven entrepreneurship to point out the process-based nature of this phenomenon. It explores whether entrepreneurship can be learned and examines the main processes that help influence entrepreneurial mind-sets.

In the current economic landscape, technology-driven entrepreneurship is the driving force behind national economies and entrepreneurial societies. It is the engine of innovation, job creation, productivity and economic growth, bringing benefits both at the level of the individual and of the society and promoting sustainable smart growth and development. This book provides a comprehensive view of “how” entrepreneurs and future entrepreneurs learn and develop their business ventures in a wider environment. Moreover, it discusses issues concerning setting up the suitable entrepreneurial environments, processes, values and policies to encourage and foster individual entrepreneurial aptitudes. It also explores practices for developing technology-driven entrepreneurship in a European context as well as in emerging regions.
