Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Overall, the text delivers what it promises: theory, process, and practice. Too often, entrepreneurship texts are framed around the business plan. This book goes beyond this and prepares the reader with important foundations and gives practical, hands-on information for starting a business."
