Psychology of Entrepreneurship: Research and Education
The European Commission and national governments world-wide are calling for an increase in Entrepreneurship (e.g. Reynolds, Bygrave, & Autio, 2004, Observatory of European SMEs, 2004). They have recognized the impact of entrepreneurship on: economic growth, a reduction of unemployment, regional development, innovation, and individual growth. These calls for entrepreneurship include the study, promotion, and development of both the entrepreneurial business and the entrepreneur. As a result, it is one of the fastest growing fields in the social sciences (Katz, 2003).
