Book Review- Entrepreneurial Neighbourhoods Towards an Understanding of the Economies of Neighbourhoods and Communities

Mohamed Buheji

Abstract


Literature doesn’t address the importance of neighbourhoods despite its growing importance for entrepreneurial development with minimal resources. There is a clear shortage in addressing the topic from multi-disciplinary perspectives that highlight the importance of local entrepreneurship across different boarders.

van Ham et al (2017) work comes to explore how entrepreneurship can influence transformation in neighbourhoods and communities, particularly through entrepreneurially driven residents who can help in reducing socio-economic instability and poverty.

Future effects of neighbourhood entrepreneurs are explored along with the challenges it brings specially to low income neighbourhoods and how it reflects even on the economics of the places. A recommendation for further studies be done in different geographies in order to bring in more global solutions that would enhance the innovation and creativity of rural areas of many developing and emerging economy countries.
