Entrepreneurship and Cluster Dynamics focuses on the origin and development of clusters and specifically on the role played by the strategic entrepreneurship in these contexts. Although separately entrepreneurship and cluster studies have already attracted the attention of academics and practitioners; this book aims to go further and offer an integrated and interactive view of topics.
The cross-cutting approach is one of the main attributes of this book. In fact, the book involves a great range of organizational and economic perspectives, from social psychology to conventional applied economics disciplines. Moreover, these topics allow the use of different levels of analysis, from the individual entrepreneur behind a start-up to the structure of cluster networks, including the organizational levels.
An analysis of the change and development of clusters going further than traditional functional approaches by examining how entrepreneurs and their actions are not only influenced by the cluster but also shape the cluster development, will offer an explanation of how entrepreneurship and networking entrepreneurs can foster, perhaps also inhibit, cluster development and change. Finally Entrepreneurship and Cluster Dynamics theorizes about the role of the strategic entrepreneurship in developing start-ups inside already established companies, which can play the role of broker in the cluster.
Entrepreneurship and Cluster Dynamics offers a unique opportunity to academics, researchers, and students to learn about relations and interactions between entrepreneurship and cluster perspectives, providing both newly and original theoretical propositions and also rigorous conclusive empirical exercises.
Corporate Entrepreneurship and Venturing is positioned at the crossroads of the strategy and entrepreneurship fields. The common theme is how and why corporate entrepreneurship and corporate venturing can contribute to innovation and strategic renewal in large established companies, in particular it explores ways to balance exploitation and exploration in established companies. The issue is how the locus of entrepreneurship affects the way corporate entrepreneurship addresses the exploitation/exploration challenge. In some chapters corporate entrepreneurship is dispersed across the organization and they examine the key elements of an entrepreneurial culture and the organizational conditions that are favorable to entrepreneurial initiatives. The other chapters contribute to the discussion on the potential role of corporate venturing which is separated from the main parts of the organization. They examine the advantages and disadvantages of corporate venture capital programs as particular forms of focused corporate entrepreneurship.
