Practice-Oriented Perspectives

Edited by Mário Franco

University of Beira Interior

Entrepreneurship has been seen as a phenomenon allowing economic development, job creation, increased productivity and innovation, but many studies do not include the causes of these events. Consequently, the objective of this book is to fill this gap by combining several studies from more practice-oriented perspectives. The various chapters presented here follow several approaches which researchers explore in different contexts and link to specific experiences in entrepreneurship. This book intends to contribute to better understanding of the phenomenon of entrepreneurship and innovation, and to show how these business practices can stimulate economic development in various countries and regions worldwide.
