About the book

Generation Z, those who are born after 1995, are becoming a part of business life, and they are getting interested in entrepreneurship. Some of them are even willing to establish a start-up during their studies. Even though empirical evidence is present for entrepreneurial intentions, entrepreneurial support mechanisms, and academic entrepreneurship, only a few studies focused on the topic of next-generation entrepreneurship, primarily driven by generation Z. However, generation Z will be dominating the workforce and hence the business life in the upcoming decade. By addressing next-generation entrepreneurship, this edited book aims to focus on the entrepreneurial intentions and activities carried out by next-generation entrepreneurs. Mechanisms needed to support the effort of generation Z in entrepreneurial activities, different challenges/motivations/opportunities/training in developing vs. developed countries, demographic differences such as gender, education, marital status, as well as cultural differences should be further topics this book aims to explore in case of next-generation entrepreneurship.

About the editor

Burak Erkut

Bahçeşehir Cyprus University

I studied economics and management science (B. Sc.) and economics (M. Sc.) at Leipzig University (Germany), and focused on product innovation and market shaping from the perspective of evolutionary economics at Technische Universität Dresden (Germany) for my PhD. During my PhD, I was a visiting researcher at York University (Canada) as well as GGS Indraprastha University and AIIMS New Delhi (both India). Together with Prof. Marco Lehmann-Waffenschmidt (TU Dresden), Gagan Deep Sharma (GGS Indraprastha University) and Achal Kumar Srivastava (AIIMS New Delhi), I co-directed the research project "Plasticity Options for Financial Decision Making: Theory and Experimental Evidence", which was financed by DAAD and DFG. With my research, I received the publication award of the Faculty of Business and Economics of TU Dresden, the most cited research award of the Journal of Open Innovation: Technology, Market, and Complexity and the prestigious German Bundesbank Award for Young Researchers. I was a guest editor for Sustainability, organized and chaired sessions at the NeuroPsychoEconomics Conference (Antwerpen, 2017) and the European Conference for Digital Government (Haspolat, 2019) and currently serve as an editorial board member for Mathematics. I am an assistant professor at Bahçeşehir Cyprus University and a fellow of Institute for Research in Economic and Fiscal Issues. My research interests include innovation, entrepreneurship, evolutionary economics, financial decision-making and history of economic thought.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Jasna Bozic

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
