About this book

Presenting an updated overview of transformational entrepreneurship, this book explores how critical concepts can be contextualised for different regions and countries, underlining the fact that no one system fits all. In order for entrepreneurship to play a role in socio-economic development, a balance needs to be struck between focusing on individual entrepreneurial activities and regions, and society-wide changes. Building on the Editors’ previous books, Systemic Entrepreneurship and Entrepreneurship Centres, this volume delves deeper into the importance of innovative eco-systems, providing examples of how transformational entrepreneurship can be implemented in different geographical locations. An invaluable read for policy-makers as well as scholars, the authors provide a series of detailed case studies from regions including the UK, Malaysia and Africa.
