IfM Publications Positive regional effects

The entrepreneurial development process does not take place in a vacuum but is embedded in contexts such as the founder's residential area.

Dr Johannes Kleinhempel (Copenhagen Business School/Denmark), Prof. Dr Sjoerd Beugelsdijk and Associate Professor Mariko J. Klasing (both Rijksuniversiteit Groningen/Netherlands) have analysed how these contexts affect entrepreneurship across Europe in their policy brief "Regional social capital and the entrepreneurial process" based on more than 22,000 people.
