This book identifies Friederike Welter’s key contribution to entrepreneurship research over recent decades, and shows how her work is contextualised in time and place. The book gives a differentiated understanding of entrepreneurship and contexts, celebrating diversity as well as complexity.

The author discusses temporal and spatial contexts and the role of gender for contextualising entrepreneurship, drawing attention to the interplay between history, place, gender alongside the context of researchers and entrepreneurs. Diversity is also highlighted through this contextual approach. This book offers a valuable collection of articles that provide entrepreneurship scholars with a sound basis for further research on entrepreneurship and context.

Essential for those interested in exploring the foundations of the entrepreneurship and context theme, Friederike Welter’s set of articles highlight the development of this debate. This will be an ideal read for all entrepreneurship scholars and students looking for an accessible review of the topic.
Critical Acclaim
‘Tracking her own learning trajectory, Friederike Welter launches an exciting odyssey through an archipelago of understandings of entrepreneurship in context. The starting point of this highly dramatic voyage is a reformed Eastern Europe, where traditions and institutions were radically challenged. As a consultant and researcher, Friederike Welter’s further field experiences are refined into conceptual contributions ranging across contextual themes widely relevant for entrepreneurship research, such as gender, space and diversity.’
– Bengt Johannisson, Linnaeus University, Sweden

‘Friederike Welter is one of the leading international scholars of entrepreneurship and SMEs. This collection of her work spanning the last twenty years illustrates how far the entrepreneurship research field has evolved and Friederike’s critical role in shifting the field away from homo economicus towards a more inclusive and comprehensive understanding that contextualises entrepreneurial actions and valorises everyday entrepreneurship.’
– Sara Carter OBE, Strathclyde Business School, UK
