Chapter 10: The nexus of entrepreneurship and regional development
This chapter offers a review on modern entrepreneurship analysis, against the background of regional development. Regions with an entrepreneurial culture tend to be forerunners in a competitive economic process. After a conceptual discussion on the importance and the measurement of entrepreneurship, the contribution discusses critical success factors and key determinants of entrepreneurship. Next, a great deal of focus is laid on the geography of entrepreneurship as well as on industrial agglomeration, while due attention is also paid to the relevance of networks for modern entrepreneurship. The chapter concludes with some retrospective and prospective remarks.
