This collection presents selected papers from the Fourth Annual Global Conference on Entrepreneurial Research, held in 1994 at INSEAD, France. Covering a wide selection of themes, methodological approaches and organization types, the papers aim to provide global perspectives on a variety of possible approaches to entrepreneurial research.
Employing a multidisciplinary approach, the papers cover all aspects of current entrepreneurship theory in multinational, economics, organizational sociology, marketing, leadership and finance. Other issues discussed include gender and networking, strategies in entrepreneurial growth, job satisfaction and franchising. A number of case studies highlight specific examples of entrepreneurship around the world, including the reform of state-owned enterprises in China and Vietnam, regional business creation in Quebec and the Italian tannery industry.
