Abstract

This multi-volume set focuses on a topic of growing interest to academics, policymakers, university administrators, state and regional economic development officials, and students: entrepreneurship. In recent years, we have witnessed a proliferation of entrepreneurship courses, programs, and initiatives at universities. Universities have also become entrepreneurial hubs, as they commercialize research via patents, licenses, and startup companies. It is also important to note that entrepreneurship cuts across numerous fields in business administration, such as management, strategy, operations management, finance, marketing, and accounting, as well as across numerous social science disciplines, including economics, sociology, political science, and psychology. Volume 1 is a comprehensive analysis of entrepreneurial universities, highlighting efforts undertaken by numerous universities to partner with industry and develop an entrepreneurial culture on campus and in the surrounding region. Volume 2 is focused on entrepreneurial finance, containing chapters on salient topics such as venture capital, angel investors, initial public offerings (IPOs), and crowdfunding. Volume 3 presents evidence on entrepreneurial opportunities relating to sustainability and other forms of corporate social responsibility, social entrepreneurship, and ethical issues that arise in the context of entrepreneurial activity. Volume 4 provides global evidence on university technology transfer and academic entrepreneurship. This set is required reading for those who want a full understanding of the managerial, financial, and public policy implications of entrepreneurship.
