Entrepreneurial Communities and Ecosystems: Theories in Culture, Empowerment, and Leadership examines the deep sociocultural dynamics supporting effective and emergent entrepreneurial ecosystems and communities for a new generation of ecosystem builders and researchers. The book provides current theories and discussion with relevant examples regarding culture, empowerment, and leadership in entrepreneurship to build more entrepreneurial communities anywhere, beginning with any set of local advantages. It clarifies the role of community in building an entrepreneurial ecosystem, and expands the theory on how entrepreneurial communities and ecosystems differ, and how they relate. The book also illuminates the often avoided discussion about power, with special attention to diversity with examples of Black, women, and LGBTQA+ entrepreneurship; provides a deep dive into the range of formal and informal education framed as entreprenology; ties the importance of entrepreneurship and entrepreneuring to resources available at the community, state, and national levels; and introduces a new concept — omnipreneurship — which puts the skills of entrepreneurship in the service of global benefit and everyday action. This research volume will be equally useful as an undergraduate or graduate text on the sociology of entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship as it is a field guide for ecosystem builders, policy makers, nonprofits, and entrepreneurship and social researchers worldwide.

The comparative numbers between male- and female-led start-ups are stark. Ninety-one per cent of venture capital money continues to fund businesses founded solely by men, with only one per cent of venture capital money invested in businesses founded solely by women. Yet being a female entrepreneur is not the preserve of Wonder Woman. It’s for every woman who wants to make it happen. Female Entrepreneurs: The Secrets of Their Success encourages every woman who has dreamt of being an entrepreneur but hasn’t yet taken the leap to take the first steps towards realising her dreams – as well as encouraging every woman who has not yet thought about running her own business to consider it. Additionally, it encourages governments and the corporate world to recognise and embrace the huge value that female entrepreneurs bring to society and the economy. John Smythe and Ruth Saunders reveal the secrets of the success of fifty-two female entrepreneurs. They outline wisdom and insights to inspire budding entrepreneurs to take the leap and offer practical advice on what to think about when setting your business up for success as well as when considering whether to scale. They also provide top tips on how to play to women’s inherent strengths and avoid the weaknesses women face – as well as how to stay sane and enjoy the journey. This practical, unique guide provides the encouragement, support and motivation any aspiring female entrepreneur could need to make those first steps towards the realisation of their ambitions. John Smythe and Ruth Saunders are both entrepreneurs themselves and regularly advise start-ups on how to launch and scale up for growth.

"The missing link that will prepare your business and your mind for the next stage of business growth." --from the Foreword by Gino Wickman, author of Entrepreneurial Leap and Traction Does your business own you more than you own it? Are you afraid it will collapse without you? Are you sacrificing your family, friends, and freedom to keep your business in business? What if, instead, your company could run on automatic while it continued to grow and turn a profit? It’s possible—and the revised and expanded edition of Clockwork makes it easier than ever. If you're like most entrepreneurs, you started your company so you could be your own boss, make the money you deserve, and live life on your own terms. In reality, you're bogged down in the daily grind, constantly putting out fires, answering an endless stream of questions, and continually hunting for cash. In Clockwork, Revised & Expanded, entrepreneurship expert Mike Michalowicz improves on his step-by-step method for getting more done by doing less – making it easier than ever to have your business run itself. The culmination of more than ten years research, with hundreds of new real-life case studies and improved processes drawn—drawn directly from Mike’s hugely successful training program—Clockwork, Revised & Expanded is your recipe for an ultra-efficient business. Among the many new and improved strategies, you will learn how to: Transfer any task off your plate and trust that your team will get it done right. Elevate your role in your company (and life) with one single word. Pinpoint the critical function your business must master to avoid mediocrity. Leverage the extraordinary power of the 3.2 hour productivity rule. And finally—do what you want, when you want, in your business and your life. Clockwork Revised & Expanded even includes an entirely new section that details how to improve each team member’s efficiency – both individually and within teams – without leadership involvement. With Mike's Clockwork system, you will make your business finally work for you.

Entrepreneurship -- manifested in the entry of new firms or products into new markets, or substantial improvements in technological capacity or process innovation by incumbent firms -- is widely considered to be an important ingredient for long term economic development. This report argues that entrepreneurship is also a source of employment generation, export growth, and resilience during economic downturns. Although the conventional wisdom suggests that Latin American and Caribbean countries underperform relative to China and other emerging markets in terms of its entrepreneurial dynamism, t.

As entrepreneurship and innovation becomes the new corporate and societal mantra, this book peers through known wisdom, glancing back and looking forward to what entrepreneurship and innovation mean, unravelling key ingredients for success. Covering a vast and complex terrain, the book uncovers six pillars that determine entrepreneurial success, providing insights stringed together from different fields of knowledge, as well as the author's own experiences, to narrate a compelling and realistic account. While each of these pillars constitutes a story in its own right, taken together, a fabric is woven that permits the reader to appreciate the entrepreneurial journey, drawing lessons for one's own endeavours as Aha! moments are encountered along the way. The book is also intended for corporates to understand how innovation unravels, for understanding the need for balancing conflicting goals as well as the importance of promoting entrepreneurship from within. EntreSutra will whet the appetite of the curious, and help demystify the essence of creation.

Discover how African-American professionals can combine their personal strengths with the wisdom of others to plant the seeds of a positive, lasting legacy in the workplace. Randal Pinkett was the first African-American winner on The Apprentice. When he won, he also became the only contestant to be asked to share his victory with a white woman. For generations, African-Americans have been told that they need to work twice as hard as everyone else to succeed. However, as millions of black Americans were reminded by Pinkett's experience, sometimes hard work is not enough. Black Faces in White Places is about "the game", the competitive world in which we all live and work. The book offers 10 revolutionary strategies for playing, mastering, and changing the game for the current generation, while undertaking a wholesale redefinition of the rules for those who will follow. In this book, you will: Expand yourself beyond your comfort zone Recognize and demonstrate the four facets of excellence Build beneficial relationships and powerful networks Identify different mentors and learn from others' experiences Discover ways of working with others to facilitate collective action Based on the authors' considerable experiences in business, in the public eye, and in the minority, the book shows how African-American professionals can (and must) think and act both entrepreneurially and "intrapreneurially". Black Faces in White Places not only explains shattering the old "glass ceiling” and changing the concept of success, but also examines the four dimensions of the contemporary black experience: identity, society, meritocracy, and opportunity.
