Entrepreneurial Place Leadership: negotiating the entrepreneurial landscape

Robert Newbery (Editor), Yevhen Baranchenko (Editor), Colin Bell (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


A place-led perspective of entrepreneurial development is becoming increasingly important, given narratives around entrepreneurial ecosystems, contexts and the design of entrepreneurial institutions. In a world where we recognise entrepreneurial means, ends and values in terms of locations with meaning, this book explores the phenomenon of Entrepreneurial Place Leadership.

Defining Entrepreneurial Place Leadership in terms of how locations with entrepreneurial meaning are created, maintained, exploited and amplified to generate future value, this edited collection considers how entrepreneurs lead in a complex entrepreneurial landscape. Leading international scholars act as our guides as we journey through a heterogeneous landscape of individual dwellings, communities and planned settlements.

Topics include: an exploration of entrepreneurial responsibility to place in rural Nova Scotia; an analysis of culture in Entrepreneurial Support Organisations in Spain; a discussion of entrepreneurial implementation of policy in Italy; and the introduction of a tool for managing a complex solution ecosystem in Australia. The authors of each chapter reflect upon the contribution of their research to academic theory and make policy and practice recommendations – as such this book is a useful resource for academics, students and entrepreneurial place leaders.
