Entrepreneurship and the Creative Economy contains a range of theoretical and empirically based research contributions that collectively consider and debate the process, policy and practice of the creative economy.

The ‘creative economy’ and the broad spectrum of creative industries that it encompasses, is increasingly important in the 21st century''s global economy. In challenging economic conditions, creative industries are both politically and economically appealing with governments around the world now recognising their potential as a source of employment and entrepreneurial endeavour. As such, this informative book will play a vital part in furthering our understanding of the creative industries and the role they play in economic development.

This enlightening compendium, researched by leading authors in the field, will prove invaluable for students, academics and researchers in the fields of creative entrepreneurship, creative industries and the creative economy.
Critical Acclaim
‘As “creative industries” becomes a defined and recognized section of global economic policies, Henry and de Bruin provide a solid foundation for constructing a public policy that will require sharper definition, quantification, education and assessment. Utilizing a range of cross-continent case histories, they also explore the existing tension between the creative processes and business practices of entrepreneurs and entrenched firms. This volume could well start the next-decade section of a professional’s book shelf.’
– Peter F. Eder, World Future Review

‘A welcome addition to an expanding and increasingly varied field of research, this collection of papers edited by Colette Henry and Anne de Bruin offers the reader ready access to key issues and debates that both reflect and interrogate understandings and experiences of entrepreneurship within the creative economy.’
– Kathryn A. Burnett, International Journal of Entrepreneurship & Innovation
