Social Entrepreneurship

This informative book examines some social entrepreneurs in practice in several countries whilst concentrating on entrepreneurs in the third sector. The authors call them citizen entrepreneurs. Such people are not only becoming more common but also more necessary in the world of today. Entrepreneurs are seen as people who aim 'to act as if and make a difference', that is, who act out of the ordinary and come up with noticeable solutions to various problems without being restricted by existing resources or possibilities. This book applies these criteria to citizen entrepreneurs, focusing on public entrepreneurs operating in public places. The authors conduct in-depth case studies to examine these public entrepreneurs thoroughly and offer some theoretical reflections on social entrepreneurship. Students and researchers studying social entrepreneurship will find this book of great interest. Social entrepreneurs and practitioners would also benefit considerably from this enriching resource.

Measuring Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurship is playing an increasingly important role in the political agenda. Thisphenomenonis dueto theincreasingin?uenceofpolitics ontheentrepreneurial promotion of growth and employment objectives. This results in the need to satisfy the new demand for statistical information in two ways. On the one hand, quanti- tive information -stock and ?ow analysis, on the other hand, qualitative information which tries to assess the ability to create wealth and employment and to innovate and export, among others. Consequently, searching a systematic set of indicators that allows us to understand the basic entrepreneurshipdimensions in order to di- nose, forecast,andmonitorentrepreneurialnetworks,is crucial forboththe research agenda and the political action agenda. However, the lack of this kind of statistical information is clear if we review some statistical subsystems on entrepreneurship on a comparison basis. The few essays on the subject are still in an initial stage. The reference theoretical framework to set the key dimensions to be analysed is to be established yet. The search for indicators and even the articulation of speci?c statistics have become crucial in order to make progressin the applied research, and to design, implement, and assess the different measurements of public intervention on this subject. Thus, the developmentof a set of indicatorsthat allow us to satisf- torily capture the different dimensions of the entrepreneurial network for a speci?c sector or territory becomes a basic element to assist progress in entrepreneurship knowledge.

Understanding Entrepreneurship

This fascinating and original textbook - an excellent introductory text for both graduate and undergraduate students - attempts to enhance and advance our understanding of entrepreneurship. In this intriguing book, Bjorn Bjerke contends that entrepreneurship cannot, to any great extent, be planned in advance. He goes as far as to suggest that planning could be against the very essence of entrepreneurship. The book explains that entrepreneurship is about courage rather than willpower, is to be venturesome and undertaking whilst experimenting, networking and pushing oneself forward, and concerns exploiting mistakes as essential learning curves. The importance of the entrepreneur as a human being is strongly expressed, as is the idea that entrepreneurship is closer to art and aesthetics than science and mathematics. Language, argues the author, plays a decisive role and philosophy provides a solid basis when we try to come to grips with the nature of entrepreneurship. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, Bjorn Bjerke asserts that all these points alert us to one simple fact: it is not possible to define a 'typical' entrepreneur and to present a model method of operating and supporting an entrepreneurial venture. ''Understanding Entrepreneurship'' is a truly remarkable textbook that will provide an absorbing and illuminating read for all those - academics, students and practitioners alike - with an interest in entrepreneurship.
