Edited by Mikaela Backman, Assistant Professor Economics, Center for Entrepreneurship and Spatial Economics, Jönköping International Business School, Jönköping University, Charlie Karlsson, Professor Emeritus of the Economics of Technological Change, Jönköping International Business School, Jönköping University and Professor Emeritus of Industrial Economics, Blekinge Institute of Technology and Orsa Kekezi, PhD Candidate, Center for Entrepreneurship and Spatial Economics, Jönköping International Business School, Jönköping University, Sweden

Many developed countries are facing a demographic change with an increasing share of older individuals, yet little is known about how older workers will impact regional and national economies in terms of labor market dynamics. This Handbook deals with the important and emerging field of entrepreneurship among this group and focuses on the behavioral perspectives of this phenomenon; on innovation, dynamics and performance; and the ways entrepreneurship among the elderly looks within different countries.

‘The Handbook of Research on Entrepreneurship and Aging provides the reader with a thorough view of a very topical research area.’
– Monika von Bonsdorff, International Small Business Journal

‘Not only have most researchers not given special attention to older entrepreneurs, they have often intentionally excluded them from their theoretical and empirical analyses. But as the globe grays, understanding how the promises and perils of entrepreneurship change with age becomes ever more important. Backman, Karlsen and Kekezi have assembled a prominent cast of entrepreneurship researchers to set the research agenda and to begin to answer many of the open questions.’
– Olav Sorenson, Yale School of Management, US
