The 21st century has changed the face of entrepreneurship and development. Venture capital volume almost tripled since 2006 and concepts like microfinance have emerged and spread. Spurring the creation of new technologies and new jobs, the role of entrepreneurs now affects globalization and amplifies the dynamics of markets and economic growth. Including a preface from Bill Drayton (CEO, Ashoka: Everyone a Changemaker), a cast of expert contributors explore how these new trends, along with a variety of political, cultural and social influences, have affected entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship and Development in the 21st Century features a diverse array of chapters on subjects such as venture capital, cryptomarkets, and alternatives to fair trade. This work is the inaugural volume of a book series by the Lab for Entrepreneurship and Development (LEAD), a now-independent organization that first started at the Institute of Quantitative Social Sciences (IQSS) at Harvard University. Experienced editors Bruno S. Sergi and Cole C. Scanlon bring together a detailed exploration of the new face of 21st century entrepreneurship. Looking across cultures, countries and sectors, this is a vital read for any student or researcher of entrepreneurial development.
This volume brings together 10 chapters by management, entrepreneurship, economics, and other researchers from Asia, Europe, the US, and the United Arab Emirates, who examine entrepreneurship and economic development in the 21st century and the impact of various trends and political, cultural, and social influences. They address entrepreneurship in developed and developing countries; entrepreneurial development and business innovation in Korea' s financial sector; the role of entrepreneurial education and contextual and environmental factors in developing entrepreneurial intention and behavior among university graduates; indigenous entrepreneurship in the Navajo Nation; value chain integration as an alternative to fair trade for coffee farmers in Chiapas, Mexico; the influence of collectivism on microfinance in Senegal; the evolution of financing entrepreneurship; how new technologies of encryption and cryptocurrencies enable entrepreneurial opportunities outside legality in the dark net; how data can identify and shape consumer behavior in ecommerce; and metrics to understand how people choose to trust reviews, focusing on Amazon reviews. Many of the chapters were developed at the Lab for Entrepreneurship and Development and presented at its 2018 Entrepreneurship and Development Conference. -- Annotation (c)2019 * (protoview. com) *
