This chapter presents an overview of nine chapters that demonstrate examples of excellent research in the field of sustainable entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial ecosystems. Entrepreneurship research regarding sustainable entrepreneurship and ecosystems appears to be evolving, and it is intended that this book stimulates further research agendas and approaches. In Part I, four chapters are presented regarding sustainability or sustainable entrepreneurship. In Part II, two chapters are presented about the entrepreneurial ecosystem orientation as explanatory factors of entrepreneurial behaviour. In Part III three chapters give attention to entrepreneurial conditions and behaviour. Overall, the chapters demonstrate the vibrancy of research on entrepreneurship and its nexus with the literatures on sustainability and entrepreneurial ecosystems. The chapters present new scientific evidence in the field together with research-informed policy and practical implications. They also demonstrate the variety of research methods in the field.

The linear economy is surpassing the physical limits of the planet being unsustainable and, therefore, a shift towards the circular economy (CE) is inevitable, fostering a more efficient use of resources (materials and wastes, energy, water) and products that generates economic gains. For this reason, the CE is attracting the attention of governments and businesses around the world. Despite an increase in the number of academic papers, the literature is still unorganized, superficial and lacking an economic-business perspective. Within this topic, different subtopics have been identified, one being the challenges and enablers to adopt circular economic activities, which is the focus of this chapter. To illustrate this, the authors use the Flash Eurobarometer 411 on European small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) and the circular economy. Conclusions are drawn regarding the literature review and this survey, leading to some implications for policy-makers and academics on the importance of SMEs engagement in the circular economy at this moment of climate emergency.
