Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'While SMEs and entrepreneurship have recently been identified as a key engine for economic development, the implications for public policy have remained elusive. In this important new book Robert Blackburn and Michael T. Schaper break new ground by providing a blueprint for entrepreneurship policy. This book is a must read for scholars and policy makers concerned with how entrepreneurship can best be harnessed to spur economic growth.' David Audretsch, Indiana University, USA

'In a globally changing landscape characterised by enhanced competitive pressures, the role of effective entrepreneurship and SME policy has never been more important. This book stimulates debate and encourages exchange of ideas between policymakers, practitioners and academics. It ultimately contributes to a more creative policy environment.' Thierry Volery, Professor and Director, Swiss Institute for Small Business and Entrepreneurship, University of St. Gallen, Switzerland
