Entrepreneurship and Innovation

 

Entrepreneurial activity is a main driver of innovation. In the past economics literature used to study profit-driven entrepreneurship. Since then emphasis has been extended to encompass social entrepreneurship as well. Entrepreneurial activities and outcomes depend on a multitude of factors, such as financing opportunities, support of startups by government measures, taxation and cultural factors. The research works of the institute analyze different types of entrepreneurship as well as the significance of framework conditions and the role of different actors in entrepreneurial processes.
