While entrepreneurship has always been the vanguard of innovation and economic growth, in this era of globalization, competitiveness, and rapid technological transformation, entrepreneurial behavior has become imperative for individuals. In this book, the authors present current research in the study of entrepreneurial theory, its role in economic development and entrepreneurial practices.

Topics discussed include a study of international entrepreneurship and the international new ventures phenomenon after two decades; reaching scalable entrepreneurship and implications for growth and job creation; an analysis of different aspects that influence the impact immigration has on host country entrepreneurship levels; and making entrepreneurs of National Youth Corps Members in Nigeria.
