This book sheds light on one of the biggest development issues of our time: how the rise of entrepreneurship and the associated mindset is likely to unfold in unexpected places and change socio-economic and political fortunes. Focusing on the Balkan Peninsula, the authors explore the early success of young entrepreneurial ecosystems in the region and highlight the dangers of direct comparison with more mature entrepreneurial centres. Offering fresh insights, this brand new book presents an analytical overview of the entrepreneurial domain that enabled Bulgaria to become the start-up capital of the Balkans. With empirical data gathered from over 80 interviews and case studies, the authors address the needs of decision-makers and managers in many countries which are on the path towards nurturing entrepreneurial ecosystems.

This book argues that Africa suffers from two main diseases: poor management and a lack of vibrant entrepreneurial activity. Africa has the raw materials, the people, and the potential to be developed, and yet there remain barriers that prevent the continent from bettering itself. To promote entrepreneurship as an engine of economic development and growth, the author has developed a Quintuple Helix Model which advocates mutual cooperation and information sharing among the five helices and provides valuable guidelines to policymakers on how to build entrepreneurship ecosystems in sub-Saharan Africa. It goes on to examine the roles that government, donors, and public and private sectors play and how Africans themselves might take the development of entrepreneurial societies into their own hands. The book includes seven chapters that emphasize the key role that each of the five components could play in the development of entrepreneurial ecosystems. Entrepreneurship scholars, policy makers, and national and local governments of sub-Saharan Africa will value this insight as they strive to create a more favorable landscape for their citizenry.

This book features latest research insights into the study of the entrepreneurial ecosystem. The focus is on understanding its influence on the development of socially and physically defined ‘places’, and how these factors are related with each other. The book argues that regardless of how the concept of a ‘place’ is defined, be it cities, regions, nations or otherwise, the impact of new technologies will influence much of our business, social, and economic landscapes. Evidently, there is an increasing pressure on ‘places’ to embrace new opportunities for strategic development and confront complacency. The solution may very well be in creating and sustaining entrepreneurial ecosystems where entrepreneurial action thrives and innovation drives the new economy.

This book presents multidisciplinary research that expands our understanding of the innovation system (IS) and the entrepreneurial ecosystem (EE) perspectives on regional economic development. It critically reviews the two concepts and explores the promise and the limits of bridging IS and EE, particularly as applied outside of the bubbling global hubs or to the types of entrepreneurship different from the high-growth variety. Building on these insights, it delves deeper into the links between the academic knowledge and its practical applications in a variety of contexts - from a vibrant London suburb to Latin American countries - with the goal of offering place-specific policy implications. Additionally, the authors advance the inquiry by examining some of the overlooked dimensions of the systemic approaches to economic development such as informal and social entrepreneurship and offers a comprehensive view of the current research at the intersection of the IS and the EE frameworks from the practical perspective. Entrepreneurship and innovation - and relatively new ways to study and understand those within the systems framework - are at the forefront of scholarly and policy debate on economic growth at the moment, making this an important and timely work for academics and policy makers.

In today's rapidly changing business landscape, entrepreneurship is growing and actively promoted by policy makers. Several reports explore the influence of entrepreneurship on the economy and put some emphasis on its positive influence GDP per capita, unemployment and exports. However, entrepreneurship does not go per se and it is now broadly admitted that the decision of the entrepreneur is narrowly connected with its environment, the so-called entrepreneurial ecosystem. This book show why policymakers, entrepreneurship supporters, and entrepreneurs themselves should keep in mind the locally structured nature of entrepreneurial networks. Even if the notion of Entrepreneurial Ecosystem has become quite popular, among the international organization, development agencies and public administrations, this concept is often considered as a new one having its origins in very recent publications. This books aims at showing that entrepreneurial ecosystems have their roots in the history of economic thought and that scholars have long been conscious of their importance. Instead of insisting upon the diversity of agents involved in these organizations, it also put some emphasis on the importance of the linkages and sharing between them and suggests some orientations in view of a performing evaluation system.

Why do tech start-ups emerge rapidly in emerging economies like India? What kind of entrepreneurial ecosystems have evolved for tech start-up promotion? What is their structure? What role do they play in the nurturing of tech start-ups to the advantage of regional economies? This book examines the trend of evolving entrepreneurial ecosystems for tech start-ups in India, ascertains its structure and examines its role in the nurturing of tech start-ups over its lifecycle, to bring out its implications for Indian economy. At the outset, it traces and conceptualizes what it terms an "ideal ecosystem" for tech start-ups in the Indian context, and explores the historical evolution of entrepreneurial ecosystems in two of the six leading start-up hubs in the country, namely, Bangalore and Hyderabad. It describes the characteristics and the structure of these ecosystems as they prevailed in the two start-up hubs, and analyses the role that they play in nurturing the development of tech start-ups. Finally, this book explores the ecosystem gaps that exist in the two cities, the factors causing these gaps, and makes policy recommendations to encourage the growth of a "healthy and vibrant" entrepreneurial ecosystem for the accelerated growth of tech start-ups in these two cities in particular, to promote employment, innovation and economic growth in the country at large. Policy makers, researchers, engineering and management students, technology and business mentors, angels, venture capitalists, and MNC executives will find the book informative, revealing and a source of valuable insights into a new, rapidly emerging entrepreneurial India.

Covering a range of topics such as financial education and entrepreneurial management, it is ideal for instructors, academicians, researchers, practitioners, business professionals, policymakers, and students.

Growing and sustaining entrepreneurial ecosystems will drive the success of future SMEs. Following on from the 2014 G20 Leaders Summit and G20 SME Conference held in Australia, SEAANZ has outlined some of the key components of an entrepreneurial ecosystem including government policy, regulation, infrastructure and financing, as well as the importance of the nano-business. It is imperative that SMEs understand the nature of the entrepreneurial ecosystem which has become a key framework for driving economic development, innovation and small enterprise growth. Rhetoric and Reality: Building Vibrant and Sustainable Entrepreneurial Ecosystems examines areas such as: the law and access to justice for small firms, opportunities for collaboration and support between large and small firms, growing indigenous enterprises, improving the manufacturing sector, collaboration within cooperatives and mutual enterprises, the Lego entrepreneur approach, the impact of intellectual capital, environmental and social sustainability practices, and the role of universities as catalysts within the entrepreneurial ecosystem. This book contains ten chapters from a range of specialist authors, with particular emphasis on: understanding specific issues for SMEs and/or components of the entrepreneurial ecosystem; reviewing prior research; identifying best practices; and revealing gaps in current policies, practices or research. The book reflects the diversity of issues and the complexity of small business as an area for government, industry and academics seeking to shape effective policies that will support this important sector."
