Chapter 3: In search of creative entrepreneurship: an exploratory analysis
The aim of this chapter is to explore the literature on creative entrepreneurship under the lens of the creative economy approach and of local economic development. The study was carried out in two phases: first, the main definitions of creative entrepreneurship and its declinations are reviewed; second, a first bibliometric analysis is conducted on the ISI Web of Science database for the period 1998–2016, and around 300 publications are selected. Even with some limitations, the results of the research highlight how the topic has consistently grown and taken up a multidisciplinary character in recent years, although it remains a niche theme but with high potential for development. We found that the creative dimension is overwhelmingly entering the debate, beside the cultural sphere. However, the issue on the definition of creative entrepreneurship remains open.
