About The Book

Entrepreneurs: (i) create, (ii) innovate, (iii) employ, (iv) are vital to the success of every economy (v) facilitate change as facilitating change is at the core of entrepreneurial action. Entrepreneurship is one of the most meaningful movements of our time. While entrepreneurship's importance to the business and economic landscape seems abundantly clear (i.e., responsibility for new products and services, job creation and economic vitality), it is often taken for granted. Indian economy faces many challenges in the years ahead in the context of globalisation, intense competition, rapid product obsolescence, technological development and increasing the pace of innovation. Since entrepreneurs have been critical to the commercialization of major innovations in the past it is only natural to ask: What can be done to maximize the chance that innovations of greater importance will be initiated in this century?

Entrepreneurs are the ones who make economic gains from innovative ideas and creative efforts. Rapid growth in entrepreneurship is seen because of the influx of small industries and the growth of technologies like Information Technology and Biotech and new enterprises like BPOs and KPOs, R&D Centers and Call Centers, etc. Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management is one of the popular programmers in business schools worldwide today. Many institutions world over now offer education and training programmers in the field of entrepreneurship.

Researchers have provided many answers to questions such as who is an entrepreneur with a variety of definitions used. Considerable exploratory studies are done on entrepreneurial motivations also. But. we have limited information about issues like nature of business, regional spread and the demographic compositions of existing entrepreneurs and networks of researchers, innovation incubators, venture capitalists and angel financiers, etc. In particular, we lack data on high impact/high growth entrepreneurs who are starting and growing firms that generates benefits to the economy and society beyond the monetary benefits given by the entrepreneurs. Further research is necessary to better understand the apparent link between new business formation and productivity growth.

Entrepreneurship is a central ingredient in economic growth. It serves as a vehicle for the commercial introduction of new goods and services as well as opening of new markets to innovations. Variation in entrepreneurial success across the world suggests that entrepreneurial environment including educational levels of local population, prior industry concentration and regional income growth may play a significant role in entrepreneurship development. Academic researchers are also working on the fundamental questions about exactly why the entrepreneurship process plays such a fundamental role in emerging economies and how policy and institutions can be designed to ensure long-term prosperity.

The contributions and shortcomings of past entrepreneurship research can be viewed within the context of six research design specifics: purpose, theoretical perspective, focus, level of analysis, time frame and methodology. The recent trend towards theory-driven research that is contextual and process-oriented is encouraging. But it is time for entrepreneurship researchers to pursue causality more aggressively. The last decade has seen a growing interest in entrepreneurship research. There have been an increasing number of practitioners, academic centers and journals in the areas of entrepreneurship and small business as well as a significant increase in the number of entrepreneurship centers.
