Handbook of Research on Entrepreneurship Policy

Edited by David Audretsch (), Isabel Grilo and Roy Thurik ()

in Books from Edward Elgar Publishing

Abstract: This unique Handbook provides a solid foundation for essential study in the nascent field of entrepreneurship policy research. This foundation is initially developed via the exploration of two significant propositions underpinning the nature of entrepreneurship policy research. The first is that entrepreneurship has emerged as a bona fide focus of public policy, particularly with respect to economic growth and employment creation. The second is that neither scholars nor policy makers are presently equipped to understand the public policy role for entrepreneurship.
