What makes an entrepreneur? The rising recognition of entrepreneurship and entrepreneurs means they have become global phenomena where entrepreneurship is seen as a key driver of economic and social development. Internationally, governments are seeking to increase business start-up rates and improve the contribution of growing firms to employment and economic growth. '''Enterprise: Concepts and Issues''' introduces many of the terms, theories and practices in the fields of entrepreneurship and enterprise to look deeper into this phenomena. It covers the origins and development of entrepreneurialism, and addresses the drivers, barriers and evolution into new areas of business and economic activity. Discussing via different dimensions and with the use of international real life case studies, it aims to understand how entrepreneurship is being applied across the economy. Written by a team of expert scholars, it discusses issues such as: * The 'entrepreneurial class' - is there such a thing and what are the barriers to entry? * Common characteristics of the successful entrepreneurs: attributes, behaviours and skills * Entrepreneurialism in different contexts - corporate, social and family. To help support their learning, readers have access to a range of online resources including chapter-by-chapter multiple choice questions which will enable them to assess how well they have grasped individual chapters. The text also features a range of supplementary readings, in text exercises and cases/examples to help bring concepts to life.
