Interest in entrepreneurship has exploded in recent years. Communities are establishing new support systems, financial tools and education programs to promote entrepreneurship. Yet we know very little about the outcomes and impacts of these programs. This excellent book brings together researchers and practitioners to summarize what we know about entrepreneurship programs and to summarize best practices in this field. This book should be useful for researchers, practitioners, and local officials interested in this topic. There is no other source that provides such a broad and useful account of entrepreneurship. -- Gary Paul Green, University of Wisconsin-Madison
