Innovation and industry evolution by David B Audretsch( Book )

40 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and German and held by 821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this article is to show how institutional and evolutionary economics provide better insights as to why some firms survive and others do not than does neoclassical economics. At the heart of the evolutionary theory is the view that new firms are a manifestation of diversity and that their subsequent survival is shaped by the selection process. Despite immense institutional and historical differences across different economic systems such as those in North America, Japan and Europe, evolutionary economics explains the role that diversity, selection and learning plays in economic development. We use a Dutch data set and a model on who survives and who does not to explain this role

Entrepreneurship and economic growth by David B Audretsch( Book )

37 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By serving as a conduit for knowledge spillovers, entrepreneurship is the missing link between investments in new knowledge and economic growth. The knowledge spillover theory of entrepreneurship provides not just an explanation of why entrepreneurship has become more prevalent as the factor of knowledge has emerged as a crucial source for comparative advantage, but also why entrepreneurship plays a vital role in generating economic growth. Entrepreneurship is an important mechanism permeating the knowledge filter to facilitate the spill over of knowledge and ultimately generate economic growth

The entrepreneurial society by David B Audretsch( Book )

27 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book economist David B. Audretsch identifies the positive, proactive response to globalization - the entrepreneurial society, where change is the cutting edge and routine work is inevitably outsourced. Under the managed economy of the cold war era, government policies around the world supported big business, while small business was deemed irrelevant and largely ignored. The author documents the fundamental policy revolution under way, shifting the focus to technology and knowledge-based entrepreneurship, where start-ups and small business have emerged as the driving force of innovation, jobs, competitiveness, and growth. The role of the university has accordingly shifted from tangential to a highly valued seedbed for coveted new ideas with the potential to create not just breathtaking new ventures but also entire new industries. By understanding the shift from the managed economy and the emergence of the entrepreneurial society, individuals, businesses, and communities can learn how to proactively harness the opportunities afforded by globalization in this new entrepreneurial society."--Jacket
Innovation and technological change : an international comparison by Zoltán J Ács( Book )

31 editions published between 1990 and 2005 in English and German and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This survey links the prevalent theory from the entrepreneurship literature concerning opportunity recognition and exploitation to economic theory, in particular the model of the knowledge production function. The debate and evidence regarding the relationship between innovative activity and organizational context is examined. The role that the external knowledge context or what has become known as knowledge spillovers and geographic location plays in innovative activity is analyzed. Based on new theoretical models combined with compelling empirical evidence, the authors offer a reinterpretation of the role of entrepreneurship in innovative activity and technology

Small firms and entrepreneurship : an East-West perspective( Book )

12 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book analyses the relative importance of small firms in industrial economies. It brings together a series of studies spanning a spectrum of selected countries in developed Western nations and Eastern Europe to identify the exact role of small firms and how this role has evolved. A striking result which emerges is that a distinct and consistent shift away from large firms and towards small enterprises has occurred within the manufacturing sector of all Western countries, while the role of small firms in Eastern European nations has been remarkably restricted, and, indeed, all these countries have experienced a shift away from small firms. It is clear from this analysis that a major challenge for political and economic reform in Central and Eastern Europe is to create the strong entrepreneurial sector which exists in the West

Valuing an entrepreneurial enterprise by David B Audretsch( Book )

14 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Entrepreneurs generally lack the marketing capabilities necessary to bring their new product to market. To engage the resources required to do this, they must somehow place a value on the enterprise. However, all of the methods of valuation currently available are based on the use of historical or current revenues, and therefore are not applicable to an entrepreneurial enterprise with a first-time product. In Valuing an Entrepreneurial Enterprise, Audretsch and Link present a valuation method uniquely tailored to emerging technology-based ventures that have no revenue history to lean on. Unlike many traditional methods, theirs does not take into account the track record of companies and products similar to that being valuated. Instead, it draws on economic theory to formulate a solution to the problem. The book develops conceptual ground, including trends in entrepreneurship, models of innovation, and the economics of standards and entrepreneurship policy. The authors review the traditional valuation methods and illustrate them numerically with case studies to show how the traditional approach produces an incorrect valuation. The core of the book presents the new methodology and demonstrates how it avoids the pitfalls of past approaches. The authors also show how public policy on technology and infrastructure changes valuations of start-up firms in areas such as stem-cell products and renewable fuels projects. Valuing an Entrepreneurial Enterprise will serve as a valuable resource for advanced students, economists, financial planners, and valuators interested in new valuation methods and the theory behind them, as well as those interested in entrepreneurship"--Provided by publisher

The role of labour mobility and informal networks for knowledge transfer by Dirk Fornahl( Book )

13 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this volume is to analyze the microfoundations of knowledge spillovers. The microeconomic analysis of spillovers leads to the insight that the spillover and flow of knowledge is not at all automatic. Instead, this volume suggests that a filter exists between knowledge and its economic application. The focus of this volume is on several key mechanisms that serve to reduce this filter and facilitate the flow of knowledge. In particular, the volume draws on an emerging literature identifying the role of knowledge spillovers to investigate significance of labor mobility and informal
Sustaining entrepreneurship and economic growth : lessons in policy and industry innovations from Germany and India by David B Audretsch( Book )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Academic research on developed countries has scientifically evaluated the role of entrepreneurship on economic growth, market expansion, commercializing innovation, and reducing unemployment. In this research, it has consistently been shown that regions or industries with higher rates of entrepreneurship show higher levels of innovation and economic growth. Consequently, most European and other developed countries are realizing the potential of entrepreneurship by introducing policy measures to strengthen their entrepreneurship capital. The literature on entrepreneurship and innovation, however, has largely ignored developing countries, despite the positive results from policy initiatives and new venture investments in India, China, and elsewhere. This volume aims to bridge this gap by bringing together research by eminent scholars in Germany and India, whose in-depth analysis of entrepreneurship, innovation, and economic development in their respective countries reveals fundamental commonalities. Covering such timely issues as R&D and labor policies, demographics, and new venture financing, and including case examples from the chemical, biotech, and IT industries, the authors offer rich insights on the entrepreneurial process. The volume concludes with a discussion of the global implications for entrepreneurship research, education, investment, and policymaking
New frontiers in entrepreneurship : recognizing, seizing, and executing opportunities by David B Audretsch( Book )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The volume presents and discusses a variety of recent developments and achievements in research on entrepreneurship. It aims at taking a systematic analysis of the theory and practice of entrepreneurship, especially in regard to nurturing strategic systems, governance arrangements, and evolutionary paths in organizations. Bringing together the insights of an international recognized array of academics, entrepreneurs, and executives, New Frontiers in Entrepreneurship focuses on two key themes: (1) connecting developments in entrepreneurship to current strategy thinking and practice; and (2) generating new and innovative ways to cultivate and develop entrepreneurial processes in new ventures and established enterprises. Exploring such topics as the integration of entrepreneurial and strategic thinking, corporate governance of new ventures and spin-offs, business-university alliances, IPO performance, the impact of Open Source, the role of science and technology in new firm formation, and the emergence of the entrepreneurial society. In the process, the authors demonstrate how entrepreneurship promotes organizational genesis, growth, and rejuvenation on a practical level, and consider on the research side how entrepreneurship has developed from a peripheral sub-field of management studies into one of the most relevant spheres of strategic management
