Entrepreneurship in a modern network economy
AbstractIn this survey paper the literature on entrepreneurship is summarised from the perspective of geographical seedbed conditions and network constellations. We argue that urban areas offer favourable incubator conditions for innovative entrepreneurship, as a result of economies of density and the opportunities created by the city as a nucleus of a broader network. We conclude that a modem entrepreneur tends to become increasingly a network operator and manager.
