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

11 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The purpose of The Role of Labour Mobility and Informal Networks for Knowledge Transfer is to analyze the microfoundations of knowledge spillovers. The microeconomic analysis of knowledge 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 The Role of Labour Mobility is on several key mechanisms that serve to reduce this filter and facilitate the flow of knowledge. In particular, the volume draws on emerging literature identifying the role of knowledge spillovers to investigate the significance of labour mobility and informal networks as mechanisms facilitating the flow of knowledge." "This work brings together scholars from labor economics, regional economics, the economics of innovation and technological change, and sociology to introduce new insights yielded from the microfoundations of knowledge spillovers."--Jacket
Entrepreneurship : determinants and policy in a European-US comparison by David B Audretsch( )

22 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,083 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Without a clear and organized view of where and how entrepreneurship manifests itself, policy makers have been left in uncharted waters without an analytical compass. The purpose of this book is to provide such an analytical compass for directing how public policy can shape and promote entrepreneurship. We do this in two ways. The first is to provide a framework for policymakers and scholars to understand what determines entrepreneurship. The second is to apply this framework to a series of cases, or country studies. In particular, this book seeks to answer three questions about entrepreneurship: What has happened over time? Why did it happen? And, what has been the role of government policy? The cornerstone of the book is the proposed Eclectic Theory of Entrepreneurship. The goal of the Eclectic Theory is to provide a unified framework for understanding and analyzing the determinants of entrepreneurship. The Eclectic Theory of entrepreneurship integrates the different strands from relevant fields into a unifying, coherent framework. At the heart of the Eclectic Theory is the integration of factors shaping the demand for entrepreneurship on the one hand, with those influencing the supply of entrepreneurs on the other hand. The key to understanding the role of public policy is through identifying those channels shifting either the demand for or the supply of entrepreneurship by policy instruments. The findings in this book show that, by utilizing the framework provided by the Eclectic Theory of Entrepreneurship, it is within the grasp of policymakers to identify the determinants of entrepreneurship in a particular country setting at a particular point in time. This will be essential in formulating new public policies to promote entrepreneurship and, ultimately, economic growth, job creation and international competitiveness

The entrepreneurial society by David B Audretsch( Book )

21 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 526 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

New frontiers in entrepreneurship : recognizing, seizing, and executing opportunities by David B Audretsch( )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 482 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." -- Back cover
Sustaining entrepreneurship and economic growth : lessons in policy and industry innovations from Germany and India by Zoltán J Ács( )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 470 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
Entrepreneurship, innovation, and technological change by Zoltán J Ács( )

10 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 408 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

This volume offers state-of-the-art insights on the dynamics of technology transfer, emerging from the annual meeting of the Technology Transfer Society in 2011 in Augsburg, Germany."--Back cover
The seven secrets of Germany : economic resilience in an era of global turbulence by David B Audretsch( Book )

16 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"German economic performance has astonished the world. At the turn of the century, Germany had been written off as the sick man of Europe. No more. Even as most of its European neighbors and OECD trading partners have struggled in the face of a turbulent global economy, the German economy has thrived. How does Germany do it? What is the secret? In The Seven Secrets of Germany, authors David Audretsch and Erik Lehmann answer these very questions. This book reveals, explains, and analyzes seven key aspects of Germany, its economy, and its society that have provided the nation with considerable buoyancy in an era of global turbulence. These seven features range from the key and strategic role played by small firms to world leadership in its skilled and trained labor force, an ability to harness global opportunities through leveraging local resources, public infrastructure, the capacity to deal with change and confront challenges in a flexible manner, and the emergence of a remarkably positive identity and image. The Seven Secrets of Germany have insulated the country from long-term economic deterioration and enabled it to take advantage of the opportunities afforded from globalization rather than succumbing as a victim to globalization. This insights can be instructive to other countries and refute the defeatist view that globalization leads to an inevitable deterioration of the standard of living, quality of life, and degree of economic prosperity."--Inside jacket
Valuing an entrepreneurial enterprise by David B Audretsch( Book )

12 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 392 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

While the public policy community has turned to entrepreneurship to maintain, restore, or generate economic prosperity, the economics profession has been remarkably taciturn in providing guidance for public policy for understanding the links between entrepreneurship and economic growth as well as for framing and weighing policy issues and decisions. The purpose of this volume is to provide a lens through which public policy decisions involving entrepreneurship can be guided and analyzed. In particular, this volume provides insights from
