Entrepreneurship is on the rise across the globe. Many high-skilled people start ambitious ventures to take advantage of global opportunities. In addition, many large firms change their business practices to foster intrapreneurship: the entrepreneurial behaviour of their employees. Lastly, most will agree that the complex challenges like sustainability, energy supply, agglomeration, health care and more require entrepreneurial solutions. This course offers a toolbox for both start-up entrepreneurship and corporate entrepreneurship. Further, it places entrepreneurship and innovation in the context of the regional entrepreneurial ecosystem and policy domain, and in particular in Sino European comparative perspective.
