This book enables you to focus on the key issues that need to be considered with regard to new ventures and/or a business plan module, as well as courses on theory and policy relating to entrepreneurship and small businesses.

  • Reviews and syntheses of the literature at the frontiers of entrepreneurship research.
  • Twenty-five provocative and stimulating full-length case studies of real entrepreneurs and their ventures, clearly linked to learning outcomes.
  • Entrepreneurship in Action vignettes coming from a wide range of disciplines cover cases as diverse as Kylie and EasyJet and bring the theory and policy to life.
  • Discussion questions at the end of every chapter stimulate critical reflection and understanding.
  • Recommended further reading lists for assignments and dissertations.
