A Two-faced Revolution in Entrepreneurship?



Entrepreneurship is a hot issue, and a revival of entrepreneurship since the 1980's seems beyond doubt. Some speak of a shift from the managed to the entrepreneurial economy. Others speak of a regime switch in the relationship between entrepreneurship and innovation. However, a critical appraisal of the available data suggests that a renaissance of solo self-employment without employees may be the dominant development. Is then the revival of entrepreneurship mainly a labour market revolution? Or is there in fact a two-faced revolution in entrepreneurship? In his lecture Sander Wennekers will weigh the evidence. 
The Erasmus - EIM - Panteia Entrepreneurship Lectures Series is co-organized by Erasmus Research Institute of Management (ERIM.nl) and EIM Business & Policy Research (EIM/Panteia), an independent and international research and consultancy organisation, specialised in SMEs and Entrepreneurship. EIM is part of the Panteia group.
