Essentials of Entrepreneurship

Evidence and Practice

Robert A. Baron, Oklahoma State University, US

This essential text will be a perfect fit for any introductory course, both within and outside of the business school.

Entrepreneurs are, in essence, individuals who take action to convert their ideas into reality. Doing so involves completing many steps; Robert Baron describes these steps, and provides guidance for performing them successfully. To do so, the book incorporates several features:

• the information presented is based on current evidence, rather than ‘informal knowledge’ or comments of specific entrepreneurs

• the focus is primarily on the essentials – the issues and topics most central to the field

• the book does not assume extensive knowledge of basic management disciplines, and so is accessible to readers with a wide range of backgrounds.

A creative, accessible textbook

for both undergraduate students and would-be entrepreneurs.

‘Entrepreneurship in Theory and Practice is not your typical textbook in entrepreneurship. The authors have taken a very creative look at the seeming contradictions that make up the creation of a new business venture. Their use of current research as well as thought provoking cases to illustrate behaviors such as opportunity recognition make this book one that both professors and would be entrepreneurs should read.’

About Entrepreneurship

Björn Bjerke, Linnaeus University, Sweden

This textbook is written for students on upper-level undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes in entrepreneurship, or business-related disciplines.

This engaging textbook offers a modern perspective on all that is essential to know about entrepreneurship. It will prove required reading for both lecturers and undergraduate and Masters students on upper-level entrepreneurship courses.

Björn Bjerke covers all kinds of aspects of entrepreneurship including the history of the subject, our modern entrepreneurial society, local community development, entrepreneurship in different national cultures and women as entrepreneurs. He addresses some theoretical developments, and considers a narrow and a broad view of entrepreneurship, rational and natural entrepreneurial start-ups and entrepreneurship in space and place.

An ideal text for undergraduate and MBA entrepreneurship courses in business, engineering and the social sciences.

An excellent contribution to the entrepreneurship literature. Highly recommended.’

– D.W. Huffmire, Choice ‘Deftly written, superbly presented, and highly recommended for community and academic library business studies collections, Entrepreneurship is ideal for use as a classroom textbook or as a primer for non-specialist general readers with an interest in entrepreneurship.’

Handbook of Research on Small

Business and Entrepreneurship

Edited by Elizabeth Chell, Kingston University and

Mine Karataş-Özkan, University of Southampton,


This insightful Handbook introduces a variety of contemporary topics, research methods and theoretical frameworks that will provide cutting edge analysis, stimulate thought, raise further questions and demonstrate the complexity of this rapidly-advancing field. Entrepreneurship is such a young discipline, relatively speaking, that there is considerable opportunity for researchers to make their mark and to shape its future direction.

Both scholars new to the area, as well as established academics looking to extend their research scope to encompass the field of entrepreneurship and small business, will find this work to be an invaluable and timely resource.

Environmental Entrepreneurship

Markets Meet the Environment in

Unexpected Places

Laura E. Huggins, PERC and Stanford University, US

In this innovative book, Laura E. Huggins finds path breaking entrepreneurial solutions to difficult environmental challenges in some of the world’s poorest areas.

The approaches entrepreneurs are taking to these challenges involve establishing property rights and encouraging market exchange. From beehives to barbed wire, these tools are creating positive incentives and promoting both economic development and environmental improvements. The case studies are from the developing world and reveal where the biggest victories for less poverty and more conservation can be won. The pursuit begins by learning from local people solving local problems.

Handbook of Research on


What We Know and What We Need

to Know

Edited by Alain Fayolle, EMLYON Business School,


This indispensable Handbook offers a fresh look at entrepreneurship research, addressing what we already know, and what we still need to know, in the field. Over the course of 17 chapters, a collaboration of 24 highly-regarded researchers, expert in their fields, provide an insightful new perspective on the future of the study of entrepreneurship. They show that there is a need to redesign research in the field – enacting entrepreneurship out of the box – and consider the history of entrepreneurship whilst developing the future course for research. They also underline the importance of developing research at the crossroads of different fields and the need to explore new domains and/or revisit existing ones from differing perspectives. Finally, they express a desire for more continuity in research, developing knowledge around key concepts and insightful domains.

How to Get Published in the Best

Entrepreneurship Journals

A Guide to Steer Your Academic Career

Edited by Alain Fayolle, EMLYON Business

School, France and Mike Wright, Imperial College

London, UK and University of Ghent, Belgium

‘This book fills a critical need in the field. It is co-edited by two highly respected and accomplished entrepreneurship scholars, and the chapters are prepared by seasoned authors who provide the knowledge of how to publish research in the top entrepreneurship journals. Publication in these journals has become highly competitive, with only a small percentage of the submitted manuscripts accepted. As such, this is a highly valuable treatise for entrepreneurship scholars and PhD students. It should be required reading for all entrepreneurship researchers.’

– Michael A. Hitt, Texas A&M University, US Competition to publish in the top journals is fierce. This book provides entrepreneurship researchers with relevant material and insights to support them in their efforts to publish their research in the most prestigious entrepreneurship outlets.

Co-operatives are found in all industry sectors and almost all countries around the world. However, despite their significant economic and social contributions, the academic literature has largely ignored these important businesses. This book is a detailed examination of the co-operative enterprise business model and the factors that help to enhance its sustainability and resilience, as well as those forces that lead to its destruction.

Concepts of Entrepreneurship

Edited by Héctor O. Rocha, IAE Business School,

Argentina, David B. Audretsch, Indiana University,

US and Julian Birkinshaw, London Business

School, UK

One of the obstacles for understanding the phenomenon of entrepreneurship is the lack of integration of different assumptions, units and levels of analysis that are implicit in its many conceptualisations. This important book offers a pathway to integration by considering eight associated disciplines and theories, presenting an authoritative selection of the most significant published work on entrepreneurship from each perspective. Including an original introduction, this is a key reference for academics and policy makers.

Entrepreneurs act in environments of great risk and high uncertainty, and as a result, failure is a common occurrence.

The International Library of Entrepreneurship series

Series editor: David B. Audretsch, Indiana University, US

Entrepreneurship, or its absence, becomes increasingly prominent as the process of change accelerates in a rapidly globalizing economy. Yet the scholarly traditions focusing on entrepreneurship have been relatively underdeveloped and dispersed across a broad spectrum of academic disciplines. The purpose of this series is to bring together the most seminal and compelling scholarly research on entrepreneurship which provides the intellectual framework and foundations underlying entrepreneurship as an important field of scholarship. Each volume is edited by a leading specialist and provides an authoritative overview of its subject area, drawing together a careful selection of the key articles set in context by a new introduction.

a significant factor in the growing interest in the application of evolutionary approaches to the study of entrepreneurship. . . A collection of his papers, accessible at one place, will naturally be of great interest to researchers and scholars of entrepreneurship. . . the book presents a valuable collection that should provide scholars with a sound base for further research in the application of evolutionary theories to the study of entrepreneurship.’

‘The recent renaissance in the use of prizes to spur innovation and extraordinary novel performance warrants close attention. Luciano Kay does so through a series of compelling case studies which shows the potential of prizes, the range of factors that influence their performance and the importance of understanding their non-pecuniary dimensions, even when there is a substantial purse. This is an important contribution to the innovation literature.’

Finance in an

Age of Austerity

The Power of

Customer-owned Banks

Johnston Birchall, Stirling

University, UK

This is a book in search of an alternative to the discredited investor-owned banks that have brought the rich countries

into crisis and the world economy into a long period of austerity. It finds customer-owned banks – credit unions, co-operative banks, building societies – have hardly been affected by the crisis and continue to operate according to their organisational DNA: low-risk, close to the customer, underpinned by real savings, and still lending to SMEs to protect jobs and local economies. They are big business – in some countries with over 40% of the market – but networked in smaller, democratic societies whose origins go back to 1850s Germany.

‘The second volume of the Handbook of Research on Venture Capital provides an important guidepost for venture capital researchers. As Landström and Mason point out, the nature of venture capital has changed dramatically over the last ten years. The asset class as a whole has failed to return principal and the old model is under tremendous strain. The contributors nicely highlight many of these changes, especially how venture capital has scaled beyond the US. For those of us active in venture capital research, the chapters raise many interesting research questions that deserve further attention.’

Entrepreneurship across Generations

Narrative, Gender and Learning

in Family Business

Eleanor Hamilton, Lancaster University

Management School, UK

Entrepreneurship across Generations examines dimensions of identity, gender and learning to understand the complex fabric of family business. An interpretation of narratives from two generations in five families constitutes entrepreneurship as an inherently social, rather than individual, phenomenon.

This enriching book explains how entrepreneurial capacity is shared between generations, showing how learning is embedded within everyday social practice in the family and the business.

Handbook on the

Entrepreneurial University

Edited by Alain Fayolle, EMLYON Business School,

France and Dana T. Redford, UCP-Porto, Portugal

This insightful Handbook offers a lens through which to view entrepreneurship strategy for higher education institutions, as it becomes increasingly necessary for universities to consider changing their strategies, culture and practices to become more entrepreneurial. Is the idea of an entrepreneurial university a myth or a reality? Is the university model capable of adapting to new evolving trends and a more complex professional world? And, what is the impact of entrepreneurship in education? Through extensive research and case studies from some of the leading entrepreneurial thinkers around the world, Alain Fayolle and Dana Redford answer these questions and raise further issues for debate.

Institutional Entrepreneurship

The growing recognition of the extent to which institutions determine economic outcomes has been one of the key developments in economic research and policy analysis in the last two decades. At the same time, the entrepreneur has made a comeback, resurrected as one of the prime value creators in society. This comprehensive volume builds on Baumol’s 1990 framework to categorize and classify the growing research field that explores the interplay between institutions and entrepreneurship.

This original and exciting new work differs from existing books on entrepreneurship by focusing specifically on the relationship between knowledge and entrepreneurship. Moreover, the book differs by uniting an academic review of theoretical and empirical contributions with an analysis of the practical implications for engaging in and learning about venture creation. The authors concentrate on specific types of firms reliant upon advanced knowledge and show how a systemic perspective of entrepreneurship is required, involving design thinking, in order to capture the relationships between individual, venture and eco-system. 2013 208 pp Hardback 978 1 78100 551 4 £70.00 Elgaronline 978 1 78100 552 1 NEW IN PAPERBACK

Entrepreneurship and

Innovation in Evolving Economies examines the role of law in supporting innovation and entrepreneurship in communities whose economies are in transition. It contains a collection of works from different perspectives and tackles tough questions regarding policy and practice, including how support for entrepreneurship can be translated into policy. Additionally, this collection addresses more concrete questions of practical efficacy, including measures of how successful or unsuccessful legal efforts to incentivize entrepreneurship may be, through intellectual property law and otherwise, and what might define success to begin with.

Case Studies in Knowledge Intensive


Edited by Maureen McKelvey, University

Astrid Heidemann Lassen, Aalborg University,


Case studies can be used as a key element in learning and understanding what really occurs, as well as for illustrating theoretical points. This book provides a series of in-depth case studies of knowledge intensive entrepreneurship from different industries to elucidate relevant phenomena and topics. They focus upon the venture creation process, involving close interactions between the individual, the company, and the external eco-system and environment. The cases primarily provide a managerial perspective on the process, from the sources of ideas, through opportunities and strategies, to outcomes and interactions with external networks.
