Handbook of Entrepreneurial Dynamics
The Process of Business Creation

Edited by:


July 2012 | 608 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
The Handbook of Entrepreneurial Dynamics provides an important forum for scholars to generate new theory, identify promising research directions, and present important insights to a very wide audience of scholars in entrepreneurship. The book is formed by empirical research from the Panel Study of Entrepreneurial Dynamics (PSED), and is the first attempt to develop a comprehensive and thoroughly representative portrait of entrepreneurial activity in the United States that can be applied to other countries. In order to study individuals as their businesses and organizations take shape, this study located and studied nascent entrepreneurs while in the process of building their enterprises.

"Entrepreneurial activity provides profound positive benefits across an important set of measures of social and economic well-being, much of it concentrated in new economic sectors, such as information technology. Yet even though entrepreneurship has been shown to provide many benefits, it is surprising that there has not be a systematic study of the process. This handbook tries to fill this gap by offering theories, ideas, and measures that can be used to explore and understand the factors involved."
