Routledge Studies in Entrepreneurship and Small Business


About the Series

Entrepreneurship is a widely-used term that has gained traction in modern academic discourse. This series aims to contribute to the knowledge and conceptualization of entrepreneurship in modern society from a variety of lenses. It promotes research and enquiry on the economic, social, cultural and personal dimensions of entrepreneurship for academic, practitioner and policy audiences. Publications in this series originate from different perspectives on the field including, though not exclusive to, studies that examine entrepreneurship as an activity – the launch of a small business, for example - a mindset and attitude, and having a specific spatial and temporal context. The research methods may draw upon primary and secondary sources or be conceptual, thus using a variety of methodological approaches. Hence, the series includes studies that cover a diverse range of conceptual, empirical and scholarly topics to both inform the field and push the boundaries of our understanding of entrepreneurship further.
