A detailed and critical analysis of the multiple types of entrepreneurship, helping students to understand the practical skills and theoretical concepts needed to create their very own entrepreneurial venture.

There are new chapters on the Varieties of Entrepreneurship, including social entrepreneurship (not-for-profit) and Intrapreneurship (employees within organizations) and Entrepreneurial Learning, which explores how entrepreneurs hone and develop their thinking. There is also a collection of new international case studies, including Dyson, Facebook, Made.com, and examples of entrepreneurship in China and Ghana.
The book is complemented by a companion website featuring online resources for instructors and students, including PowerPoint Slides, additional mini case studies, multiple choice questions, video links, and revision tips.
