Entrepreneurship studies have suffered from misleading and inaccurate information in the past that makes it hard to separate the myths from realities. By identifying some crucial issues that need to be resolved, and by discussing what past analytical errors may have occurred, this book makes a significant contribution towards enhancing our overall understanding of the entrepreneurial process. The Handbook of Entrepreneurship brings together the best researchers in the USA and Europe to review the most up-to-date thinking on the most crucial topics in entrepreneurship studies. It is the first book to combine the research activities of Europe and the United States, and reflects cutting-edge research with a multicultural perspective. The 21 chapters in the Handbook have been written by 28 experts representing a entrepreneurial Who's Who. The chapters are grouped into four major sections: Public Policy, which examines the different contexts in which businesses operate around the world. Growth which looks at the theoretical perspectives and issues of growth, the impact of entrepreneurial teams and strategic alliances, and the management of transition and rapid growth. Finance which covers the broader issues of financing growth, formal and informal venture capital, and initial public offerings. Strategy/Research Methods which provides an overview of current European and North American research methods and identifies further research needs.
