The Oxford Handbook of Entrepreneurship aims to provide a comprehensive review of state-of-the-art research in entrepreneurship. The authors are all leading scholars in their field. Entrepreneurship has always been a key factor in economic growth, innovation, and the development of firms and businesses. More recently, new technologies, the waning of the old economy, globalization, changing cultures and popular attitudes, and new policy stances have further highlighted the importance of entrepreneurship and enterprise.

All the major aspects of entrepreneurship are covered in this book: the start-up and growth of firms; financing and venture capital; innovation, technology, and marketing; women entrepreneurs; ethnic entrepreneurs; migration; small firm policy; the economic and social history of entrepreneurship.
