Publisher's Synopsis

The contextual turn in the field of entrepreneurship means it is crucial for scholars to integrate into their research the multifaceted contexts in which entrepreneurship is embedded. This insightful book explores the different spatial, social, digital, institutional and policy contexts for entrepreneurship and investigates their relevance for entrepreneurship theory and practice.

Featuring cutting-edge research, Contextual Embeddedness of Entrepreneurship presents a wide range of theoretical approaches undertaken to study entrepreneurial behaviour and processes, analysing their relevance to policy and practice. Chapters examine these approaches through the lens of specific issues and circumstances related to digital, edtech, social, international and peripheral entrepreneurship, exploring diverse perspectives and illustrating how different contexts shape entrepreneurial activity and its outcomes. The book ultimately demonstrates how changing environmental conditions for entrepreneurship - including crises, societal challenges and increasing digitalisation - can open up new avenues for research into the embeddedness of entrepreneurship.

Illustrating the continuous evolution of studies in entrepreneurship, this discerning book will stimulate the research of students and scholars of business and management. Its up-to-date empirical approaches and practical insights will also benefit entrepreneurship researchers and practitioners.
