About this book

Taking the themes of entrepreneurship, start-ups, innovation and collaboration, this book seeks to answer the urgent question of how countries and companies can stay competitive in an ever-changing digital environment. The authors determine which entrepreneurial processes will work for whom and under what circumstances, presenting methodological implications for business research, start-ups and policy making. Examining the success of Germany as an innovation powerhouse, and comparing this with the USA, this edited collection provides valuable ideas for improving practice, facilitating start-up activity, and ultimately ensuring a country’s competitive edge.

Reviews

“This book provides readers with access to the decisions facing front-line entrepreneurs in a framework derived from close observation of emergent practice in its developing theoretical context. A cross disciplinary team of contributors has drawn on current experiences of start-ups, supporting institutions and established firms to analyse the comparative success of both support structures and regulatory instruments. The authors articulate the key factors which need to be addressed by stakeholders facing the challenge of creating an environment supportive of both incremental and radical innovation. The book maintains a focus on findings from research into Internet enabled start-ups in Berlin. Such Internet based start-ups are frequently presented as an option for regions seeking a catch up strategy. This detailed comparative analysis of the challenges and opportunities within a major European capital city is therefore a valuable resource for a wide range of academics, practitioners and policymakers.” (Stephen E. Little, Asia Pacific Technology network UK)

“This is an interesting and timely text concerning entrepreneurial behaviour in relation to the increasingly important areas of radical and disruptive innovation in the rapidly expanding digital market space. Conclusions and recommendations concerning government policy aimed at stimulating innovation are based upon research on start-ups and support mechanisms such as business accelerators.” (Ian Chaston, Professor, University of Auckland, New Zealand)
