Presenting cutting-edge research from Europe and beyond, The Role of Ecosystems in Developing Startups examines the diverse triggers of the entrepreneurial process and evaluates the richness of different entrepreneurial ecosystems.

Novel approaches and methodologies in the field of startups, small business and entrepreneurship are provided, together with the conceptualisation of ecosystems in the managerial field. The book also demonstrates the importance of context in terms of actors and networks, the complete entrepreneurial journey as a set of complex processes and the role of time and resources supporting new companies. Furthermore, the use of social networks in both the early stages and in strategy execution are investigated as key to the entrepreneurial process and its ultimate success.

The book’s up-to-date empirical approach and practical guidance will provide an excellent resource to scholars and researchers in entrepreneurship alongside other business and management topics, practitioners and policy analysts in the field of entrepreneurship and management.

‘Understanding better the entrepreneurial process is of key importance for entrepreneurship research and practice. This book, written by a group of international scholars, offers new and fresh research perspectives. The contributions highlight the multiple dynamics influencing the entrepreneurial process related to the different types of firms (e.g. family firms, born globals and high-tech firms), operating in different economic environments, ecosystems and support structures. The book transcends both disciplinary and geographic boundaries in developing insight of an important research area.’
