About these proceedings


The very latest theories and research on the development of entrepreneurship are to be found in this book. It explores the factors affecting the performance of small and family businesses and entrepreneurs’ innovativeness, amongst other themes. Selected papers update readers on the entrepreneurship environment and reveal aspects of newly identified issues such as innovation for entrepreneurship educators, globalization, entrepreneurship thinking and traits, aspects of a knowledge society, Islamic entrepreneurship, green entrepreneurship and internationalization strategies. Readers may also engage with the theme of the financial and accounting environment for entrepreneurship, including topics such as financial assessment and diagnosis, modelling, hedging, fraud, bankruptcy and governance. 

Perspectives relevant to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) emerge in this work. The development of Islamic finance and networking effects based on ethnicity are explored, as well as the economic considerations that must be addressed by entrepreneurs in pursuit of any internationalization policies. 

Scholars and policy makers with an interest in entrepreneurship or small to medium-sized businesses or enterprises (SMEs) will find many valuable insights in this volume.
