More Information
This Research Handbook on Entrepreneurship in Emerging Economies provides a range of contextualized perspectives on entrepreneurship in emerging economies. Featuring contributions from leading experts, it explores the various social and institutional contexts that produce and affect entrepreneurship.

This Research Handbook portrays the theories, processes and practices of entrepreneurship in emerging economies as being markedly different from those in developed, post-industrial economies, emphasizing how national context shapes incentives for entrepreneurial efforts. Exploring multiple theories of entrepreneurship, chapters dissect the opportunities – and barriers – emerging from various institutions and social practices from the Middle East, North Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia and Latin America.

Comprehensive and incisive, this Research Handbook is an ideal guide for researchers and both undergraduate and postgraduate students working on emerging economies, particularly those with an interest in global entrepreneurship. It will also benefit policy-makers seeking to develop entrepreneurial activity in developing economies.
Critical Acclaim
‘Contextualizing entrepreneurship is about acknowledging variety in forms, outcomes and entrepreneurial actions. This Research Handbook illustrates the heterogeneity of entrepreneurship in emerging countries around the world, including a number of countries we know little about. The contributors present fascinating insights about entrepreneurship from a broad variety of geographical contexts. I recommend this book to anyone interested in entrepreneurial diversity in emerging countries.’
– Friederike Welter, Institut für Mittelstandsforschung Bonn and University of Siegen, Germany
