1. Entrepreneurship, Space and Place series

    Edited by Darja Reuschke, School of Geography and Geosciences, University of St Andrews, Colin Mason, Adam Smith Business School, University of Glasgow, Stephen Syrett, Centre for Enterprise and Economic Development Research, Middlesex University, UK, Maarten Van Ham, Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands and Duncan Maclennan, School of Management, University of St Andrews, UK

    This important series offers a better understanding of how entrepreneurship shapes space and place and vice versa, and why entrepreneurship varies across space. Essential to Entrepreneurship, Space and Place is the key notion that linkages between entrepreneurship research and economic geography with housing, urban and neighbourhood research will enable a better understanding of entrepreneurial processes and outcomes. In particular, the constituent volumes encourage debate about contemporary conceptualisations of entrepreneurs, entrepreneurial activities, local embeddedness and entrepreneurial communities and neighbourhoods, and document current shifts in entrepreneurial practices, identities and places. Significant and integral to the series is the potential cross-fertilisation of social science theory, entrepreneurship concepts and economic geography. An essential starting point and reference for scholars, academics and policymakers, this series will stimulate debate and provide true insight into the social and economic relationships between location, people and entrepreneurship.

  1. Entrepreneurial Neighbourhoods

    Entrepreneurial Neighbourhoods

    Edited by Maarten van Ham, Darja Reuschke, Reinout Kleinhans, Colin Mason, Stephen Syrett
    Despite the growing evidence on the importance of the neighbourhood, entrepreneurship studies have largely neglected the role of neighbourhoods. This book addresses the nexus between entrepreneurship, neighbourhoods and communities, confirming not only the importance of ‘the local’ in entrepreneurship, but also filling huge gaps in the knowledge base regarding this tripartite relationship.

  2. Entrepreneurship in Cities

    Entrepreneurship in Cities

    Edited by Colin Mason, Darja Reuschke, Stephen Syrett, Maarten van Ham
    Entrepreneurship in Cities focuses on the neglected role of the home and the residential neighbourhood context for entrepreneurship and businesses within cities. The overall objective of the book is to develop a new interdisciplinary perspective that links entrepreneurship research with neighbourhood and urban studies. A key contribution is to show that entrepreneurship in cities is more than agglomeration economies and high-tech clusters. This is the first book to connect entrepreneurship with neighbourhoods and homes, recognising that business activity in the city is not confined to central business districts, high streets and industrial estates but is also found in residential neighbourhoods. It highlights the importance of home-based businesses for the economy of cities. These often overlooked types of businesses and workers significantly contribute to the ‘buzz’ that makes cities favourable places to live and work. Learn More
