Entrepreneurship has long been seen as a major vehicle for economic development and growth and it has attracted researchers from a variety of disciplines with very diverse analytical approaches. The vast amount of research that has been conducted so far, has raised certain pertinent questions which remain unanswered; questions such as: "Which model to apply in practical policy work?", "Are other models equally viable?", "What are the implications of the different models?", and "How can and should they be used to guide the formulation and implementation of entrepreneurship policies?"

Entrepreneurship and Dynamics in the Knowledge Economy highlights the role of individual economic agents with endowments of new knowledge or new combinations of old knowledge as entrepreneurs, and thus identifies them as dynamic factors in the knowledge economy. The book also examines the role of clusters and agglomerations for these entrepreneurs in the knowledge economy. This book will act as an indispensable guide for students, academics and professionals.
