Entrepreneurship and urban regeneration policy have traditionally been treated as separate fields. This volume is one of the first to focus explicitly on the links between the two, examining how policy can help regenerate inner cities and other areas of urban distress by stimulating entrepreneurship.  It sets out recent policy developments in North American and European cities in: 

  • Financing entrepreneurship.
  • Providing advice, training and mentoring to entrepreneurs.
  • Using special zones and area-based policies to grow new and small firms.
  • Supporting social enterprises.

This book presents a 'toolbox' of instruments for entrepreneurship development in what often appear to be the most hostile environments for economic development in our cities, showing how entrepreneurship can indeed prosper given the right stimulus.

It is based on the proceedings of the conference on Entrepreneurship and Economic Development in Distressed Urban Areas held 7-8 October 2003 in Rome by the OECD LEED Programme, in collaboration with the European Commission's Directorate General for Employment and Social Affairs, the municipality of Rome, and Risorse per Roma. American and European experts contributed to this volume and many case studies of city development experiences are included. 

Entrepreneurship: A Catalyst for Urban Regeneration is critical reading for policymakers, academics and those concerned with urban regeneration and poverty reduction in inner cities, as well as for those seeking ways of creating greater entrepreneurship vitality in our economies.
