This volume seeks to catalyze the emergence of a novel field of policy studies: entrepreneurship policy. Practical experience and academic research both point to the central role of entrepreneurs in the process of economic growth and to the importance of public policy in creating the conditions under which entrepreneurial companies can flourish. The contributors, who hail from the disciplines of economics, geography, history, law, management, and political science, seek to crystallize key findings and to stimulate debate about future opportunities for policy-makers and researchers in this area. The chapters include surveys of the economic, social, and cultural contexts for US entrepreneurship policy; assessments of regional efforts to link knowledge producers to new enterprises; explorations of policies that aim to foster entrepreneurship in under-represented communities; detailed analyses of three key industries (biotechnology, e-commerce, and telecommunications); and considerations of challenges in policy implementation.

This book reveals how government and its allies (like business associations) can help people to start businesses that have the potential to grow rapidly and make major contributions to the economy. Although many entrepreneurs think of government as the enemy, and many policy-makers simply ignore entrepreneurs and potential entrepreneurs, this volume argues that the two groups should be allies, since their goals of building a vibrant economy and new businesses are interconnected. Contributors to the volume assert that mutual education and careful attention to the design of new policies will help this alliance to grow stronger.

Te series Perspectives in Entrepreneurship: A Research Companion provides an authoritative overview of specialised themes in entrepreneurship. Each of the four books presents the conceptual framework and foundations underlying a specialist feld of scholarship in entrepreneurship. Te series is inspired by the dearth of higher-level texts available in South Africa, failing to encapsulate the rigorous research evident in the growing feld of entrepreneurship internationally. Te content is driven by a judicious selection and interpretation of key knowledge set in context by introducing and delineating major topics previously not discussed in-depth in traditional entrepreneurial texts. A blend of theoretical and empirical evidence is presented that collectively demonstrates the convergence of thinking on a particular theme. Identifying and evaluating the most seminal and impactful scholarly research on diferent subject areas where entrepreneurship is at the core, serves to achieve this convergence. By applying a theoretical lens to central issues ‘about entrepreneurship’ rather than focusing on practical issues of ‘how to’, the series has a conceptual outlook with specialist areas in detailed narrative. Te book is deliberately structured to add value to learners who are undertaking secondary programmes in entrepreneurship by building on basic entrepreneurship principles and theory. Te series builds on fundamental entrepreneurial texts. Each book provides a valuable knowledge base for educators, third year and postgraduate students, researchers, policy makers, and service providers.
