Up-to-date research on the factors which contribute to the build-up of entrepreneurship. This volume provides an international, comparative and historical perspective, with a special focus on Mediterranean countries including Spain, Italy and Greece. The authors take a quantitative approach in their exploration of these, as well as many other countries including England, Scotland and Argentina. Whilst several chapters explore entrepreneurial success as their main dependent variable and study the factors that explain it, others deal with a variety of topics such as education, innovation, immigration, kinship links, the role of investment, geographical factors, and macroeconomic variables.
