The proposed book is divided in two parts:
Part I
To Uncover the dynamics of organizations promoting entrepreneurship. The main focus is on the relationship between individuals and teams on the one hand and the organizational dynamics of funding, change and long run competitive performance on the other. This includes studies of demography, population ecology, motivation, personality, health, social networks, diversity and social comparison. Drawing on research from economics, psychology and sociology, the book aims at contributing to a cross-disciplinary understanding of organizations promoting entrepreneurship, how individuals affect them, and how individuals are affected by the dynamics within and between organizations.
Part II
This part deals with dynamics of entrepreneurship in Rural Sectar. Rural development is more than ever before linked to entrepreneurship. Institutions and individuals promoting rural development now see entrepreneurship as a strategic development intervention that could accelerate the rural development process. Furthermore, institutions and individuals seem to agree on the urgent need to promote rural enterprises: development agencies see rural entrepreneurship as an enormous employment potential; politicians see it as the key strategy to prevent rural unrest; farmers see it as an instrument for improving farm earnings; and women see it as an employment possibility near their homes which provides autonomy, independence and a reduced need for social support. To all these groups, however, entrepreneurship stands as a vehicle to improve the quality of life for individuals, families and communities and to sustain a healthy economy and environment.
The entrepreneurial orientation to rural development accepts entrepreneurship as the central force of economic growth and development, without it other factors of development will be wasted or frittered away. However, the acceptance of entrepreneurship as a central development force by itself will not lead to rural development and the advancement of rural enterprises. What is needed in addition is an environment enabling entrepreneurship in rural areas. The existence of such an environment largely depends on policies promoting rural entrepreneurship. The effectiveness of such policies in turn depends on a conceptual framework about entrepreneurship, i.e., what it is and where it comes from.
