We are seeking contributions to the book on Entrepreneurial Financial Resilience and Financial Innovation in a Turbulent Era. The coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis continues in 2021 to have profound implications for human lives, entrepreneurial ventures and societies across the globe, giving rise to new economic, social and political challenges. In the current turbulent era, in all economies, whether developed or emerging, and all firms – especially small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) – have been severely affected by the economic shock of the pandemic. And yet, many SMEs have also ‘bounced back’ resiliently. However, two underexplored and lucrative domains are: (a) the impact of the financial crunch felt by SMEs; and (b) their innovative and resilient coping strategies.
The primary aim of the book is to provide cutting-edge research that examines contemporary entrepreneurial issues emerging since the pandemic and to consider innovative approaches used to re-position SMEs, and manage financial change. The book targets both established and emergent researchers, as well as undergraduate and postgraduate students (as supplementary reading), policy-makers and practitioners. The book aspires to be the “go to” text for policymakers, financial institutions, managers, and academics.
Due to relatively tight deadlines, we anticipate that authors build on work in progress and data that has already been collected. We plan to include chapters authored by a mix of senior and junior scholars. We will invite various highly respected authors across the world, including institutions in Europe and the US, to complement the other perspectives.
For the first step, we ask potential Contributors to supply a tentative title, an abstract of up to 500 words and a list of up to 6 key words/terms for their intended chapter. The abstract should include the objectives of the chapter, the methods used, and the potential findings and implications of your work for research and practice.
