This Research Handbook advances entrepreneurship theory in new ways by integrating and contributing to contemporary theories of practice. Leading practice theorists and entrepreneurship experts, who are part of the growing Entrepreneurship as Practice (EaP) research community, expertly propose methodologies, theories and empirical insights into the constitution and consequences of entrepreneuring practices.
 
This comprehensive Research Handbook pushes boundaries in scholarship about what entrepreneurship is and what it can become. It is split into three distinct sections covering new foundations, new theoretical advances and methodological advances. Together, with an insightful foreword by William B. Gartner, chapters examine insights into the nature and consequences of entrepreneurship, its practices and relations, as well as novel research methods for conducting empirical EaP research. Collectively, this Handbook marks a bright future for EaP research.

This insightful Research Handbook will provide an excellent up-to-date introduction to EaP research for entrepreneurship, management and organization scholars as well as scholars new to theories of practice. Practitioners and researchers will also benefit from the wider perspective that this book provides in a novel, exciting and powerful way to fully understand entrepreneurship.
Critical Acclaim
‘This Research Handbook will be an essential resource for scholars aiming to use practice theory to take a fresh look at entrepreneurship phenomena and generate novel theorising. The sections lay out the foundation and theoretical background to this new approach to entrepreneurship, and then provide methodological approaches for conducting research and illustrate the type of phenomena that can be illuminated by a practice approach. A really interesting and thought-provoking Handbook that will take both entrepreneurship and practice theorising forward.’
– Paula Jarzabkowski, University of London, UK

‘This is an important Research Handbook for entrepreneurship because it offers depth and variety on the practice of entrepreneurship. Understanding the practice of entrepreneurship is critical because it provides insights into the nuances of entrepreneurs’ activities, relationships, and communications. This book is a wonderful resource for those interested in the “nitty-gritty” of entrepreneurial phenomena.’
– Dean A Shepherd, Notre Dame University, US
