Entrepreneurship Trajectories: Entrepreneurial Opportunities, Business Models, and Firm Performance explores several entrepreneurship trajectories recognized by economists and entrepreneurs. It is not possible to talk about growth paths addressed by entrepreneurial ventures without recalling the business model and the type of entrepreneurial opportunity at their foundations. Diego Matricano assumes that the growth paths addressed by entrepreneurial ventures depend on both effective business models and promising opportunities. This pragmatic guide illuminates the entrepreneurial trajectories linking opportunities, business models, and growth paths, offering complete and nuanced views through its extensive use of case studies.
- Defines both theoretically and empirically the entrepreneurship trajectories that entrepreneurs can address
- Provides cases and data about ongoing startups from official websites such as Global Entrepreneurship Monitor, US Census Bureau, and Eurostat
- Describes a comprehensive view of entrepreneurship trajectories that link entrepreneurial opportunities, business models, and growth paths
