Boek

The role of community, neighbourhood and local social networks in shaping entrepreneurship has not received much attention in entrepreneurship research. On the other hand, neighbourhood and community studies focus mostly on residents and rarely look into how entrepreneurship can benefit and transform neighbourhoods.

This book aims to overcome this mutual neglect, focussing on how neighbourhoods and communities shape entrepreneurship and vice versa. The book consists of two parts. The first focuses on how neighbourhoods and other localised spaces and networks influence entrepreneurship.

This type of research is becoming increasingly important with the rise of solo-self employment (which is often home-based) and the mainstream policy discourse in which entrepreneurship is seen as a ‘magical’ solution for upward social and economic mobility of residents in deprived urban neighbourhoods. The second part focuses on how Community-Based Enterprises shape neighbourhood revitalization.
