In this book the author investigates the role of entrepreneurship in the socio-economic development of emerging economies, highlighting its vital part in implementing development programs and policy initiatives. In search of efficient ways to stimulate entrepreneurial activities, Entrepreneurship in Emerging Economies reviews recent academic research and accumulated policy implementation experiences to identify measures and instruments which can be adopted within emerging countries’ institutional context. Particular attention is given to three issues which have dominated the debate on the macroeconomic impact of entrepreneurship at the turn of the twenty-first century: job creation, innovation, and international trade and economic cooperation. In the final chapter the author offers a holistic model of entrepreneurship policy to address the particular needs of emerging economies, encompassing entrepreneurship policy, favourable institutional environments and pragmatic principles for implementing selective policy measures..
