Currently, very little academic research exists on the intersection of entrepreneurship and philanthropy. This unique Handbook fills that gap, exploring how and why entrepreneurs who drive success in the for-profit world become engaged in philanthropy. Top scholars in the fields of family business, entrepreneurship and philanthropy explore the many facets of this fascinating subject.

These expert contributors explore an exciting new field of research on entrepreneur philanthropists who have generated wealth through the creation and development of their own business enterprises. The book offers a broad overview of entrepreneurship and philanthropy, along with a focus on specific groups of entrepreneur philanthropists (including women, Black Americans, multi-generational family companies and technology entrepreneurs) and a selection of case studies from around the world.

This pioneering Handbook will appeal to scholars in the fields of business, entrepreneurship, nonprofit and philanthropic studies, public policy and administration, as well as practitioners and policymakers with an interest in the practical aspects of entrepreneurship and philanthropy.
