  1. Prescriptive Entrepreneurship

    Prescriptive Entrepreneurship

    James O. Fiet
    In the only known programme of prescriptive entrepreneurship, James Fiet provides a marked contrast to the standard descriptive focus of entrepreneurship studies. Instead of the anecdotally based pedagogies that have dominated the teaching of entrepreneurship (and which do not control for luck-based success), the author lays out a programme of research to develop and test theoretically derived guidelines for how to improve the success rate and performance of aspiring entrepreneurs. Rather than describing what entrepreneurs do, he prescribes and tests what they ought to do. Learn More

    Career Choice in Management and Entrepreneurship

  8. Handbook of Research on Entrepreneurship Policy

    Handbook of Research on Entrepreneurship Policy

    Edited by David B. Audretsch, Isabel Grilo, A. Roy Thurik
    This unique Handbook provides a solid foundation for essential study in the nascent field of entrepreneurship policy research. This foundation is initially developed via the exploration of two significant propositions underpinning the nature of entrepreneurship policy research. The first is that entrepreneurship has emerged as a bona fide focus of public policy, particularly with respect to economic growth and employment creation. The second is that neither scholars nor policy makers are presently equipped to understand the public policy role for entrepreneurship. Learn More

  11. Academic Entrepreneurship in Europe

    Academic Entrepreneurship in Europe

    Mike Wright, Bart Clarysse, Philippe Mustar, Andy Lockett
    This book advances our understanding of university spin-off creation and development in environments outside the high-tech clusters of the US. While there has been substantial university spin-off activity internationally in recent years, a number of major aspects are little understood. The authors argue that the nature of universities is changing as reduced public funding reflects a public debate on their role in society. An important aspect of this international phenomenon is an increased emphasis on the commercialization of university research and on academic entrepreneurship. These new ventures therefore involve the spinning-off of technology and knowledge generated by universities. Learn More
