Phillip Phan, Jill Kickul, Sophie Bacq, Mattias Nordqvist

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Scholars and policy makers have long recognized entrepreneurship as a powerful engine of economic growth. There is clear evidence, however, that when it comes to social entrepreneurship, policy attention has not been matched by growth in scholarly research. This volume illustrates the type of empirical effort that must take place for the field to advance.
