Critical Acclaim
‘Exceptionally well written, organized and presented, Entrepreneurship in Theory and Practice must be considered an essential and core addition to college and university library Entrepreneurship, Economics, and Contemporary General Business collections.’
– James A Cox, Midwest Book Review

‘This highly useful textbook presents a broad view on entrepreneurship, including entrepreneurial action in new and established firms, associations, government agencies etc. It does so in a refreshing way by drawing on theoretical insights and by putting them into the context of exciting practical examples. Enjoy your deep dive into entrepreneurship!’
