Across its 24 chapters and 625 pages organised into six sections, this comprehensive handbook offers a unique insight into the often simplified but quite multi-layered, complex world of African entrepreneurship. As well as identifying threads of common challenges and practices, the book weaves an intricate tapestry around problems and prospects, cultures and contexts, and the features and future of entrepreneurship and innovation on the African continent.
Written from a Pan-African perspective by a cast of international authors, the book addresses the rapid modernisation and evolution of African entrepreneurship and business practices. It maps new developments in entrepreneurial ecosystems, technology and digital entrepreneurship, entrepreneurship in conflict zones, and gender and diversity issues. It proposes new models for entrepreneurial financing and explores the contrast between entrepreneurship in high-technology urban centers with peripheral rural districts and conflict zones.
Bringing together empirical insights and case studies from countries across Africa, the Handbook illuminates regional and contextual differences and shares theoretical and practical insights which inform policy and practice. It is an ideal guide for researchers and students working on international business, entrepreneurship and emerging economies. It will also inform policymakers in developing context-informed entrepreneurial policies and initiatives in Africa.
