‘This is an impressive study. It blends theory and evidence to provide answers to one of the biggest questions of our time: what makes and shapes successful entrepreneurs? This book is beautifully crafted and is a must-read for entrepreneurship researchers, applied economists, and a wide range of policymakers. I liked especially the mix of sophisticated statistical analysis and down-to-earth common sense.’ – Andrew Oswald, University of Warwick, UK Higher employment, economic growth and innovation are fundamental objectives of modern economies. One effective means of attaining these goals is the development of successful entrepreneurs, and this book aims to provide a deeper, research based understanding of the factors influencing successful entrepreneurship. Mirjam van Praag compares and contrasts the economic theory of entrepreneurship with determinants of successful entrepreneurship derived from empirical evidence, in an attempt to discover what makes for an accomplished entrepreneur.
