96 countries | 91 types of business | 100 ways to live your life The Other Hundred Entrepreneurs is a unique photo-book showcasing the stories of everyday entrepreneurs whose achievements deserve to be celebrated, part of a unique global initiative to provide a counterpoint to the mainstream media consensus about some of today’s most important issues. Instead of conventional success stories about tech billionaires and elite MBAs, the book contains 100 stories of everyday people who have started businesses, big and small, and taken control of their lives. These entrepreneurs run their own businesses without ever hiring an investment bank, planning an exit strategy, dreaming of an IPO or even receiving a loan. Together, these portraits from all over the world present a more representative picture of entrepreneurship than the one we get from the covers of Forbes, Fortune or SUCCESS Magazine. The first book in The Other Hundred initiative celebrated a richly diverse selection of ordinary people living extraordinary lives all over the world.

In the 1890s, Spanish entrepreneurs spearheaded the emergence of Córdoba, Veracruz, as Mexico’s largest commercial center for coffee preparation and export to the Atlantic community. Seasonal women workers quickly became the major part of the agroindustry’s labor force. As they grew in numbers and influence in the first half of the twentieth century, these women shaped the workplace culture and contested gender norms through labor union activism and strong leadership. Their fight for workers’ rights was supported by the revolutionary state and negotiated within its industrial-labor institutions until they were replaced by machines in the 1960s. Heather Fowler-Salamini’s Working Women, Entrepreneurs, and the Mexican Revolution analyzes the interrelationships between the region’s immigrant entrepreneurs, workforce, labor movement, gender relations, and culture on the one hand, and social revolution, modernization, and the Atlantic community on the other between the 1890s and the 1960s. Using extensive archival research and oral-history interviews, Fowler-Salamini illustrates the ways in which the immigrant and women’s work cultures transformed Córdoba’s regional coffee economy and in turn influenced the development of the nation’s coffee agro-export industry and its labor force.

This book presents the history of the Gomez, an elite family of Mexico that today includes several hundred individuals, plus their spouses and the families of their spouses, all living in Mexico City. Tracing the family from its origins in mid-nineteenth-century Mexico through its rise under the Porfirio Diaz regime and focusing especially on the last three generations, the work shows how the Gomez have evolved a distinctive subculture and an ability to advance their economic interests under changing political and economic conditions. One of the authors' major findings is the importance of the kinship system, particularly the three-generation "grandfamily" as a basic unit binding together people of different generations and different classes. The authors show that the top entrepreneurs in the family, the direct descendants of its founder, remain the acknowledged leaders of the kin, each one ruling his business as a patron-owner through a network of clienty2Drelatives. Other family members, though belonging to the middle class, identify ideologically with the family leadership and the bourgeoisie, and family values tend to overrule considerations of strictly business interest even among entrepreneurs.

Entrepreneurship in Africa explores how our mindset and attitudes affect our enterprises. It offers a 3-Dimensional approach to entrepreneurship - managerial, financial and spiritual. The book clearly demonstrates that entrepreneurship is a journey full of joy, trials and tribulations. It demystifies the paradoxical side of entrepreneurship by offering hope to the entrepreneurship journey. It offers a hand- holding approach to real life situations. The book offers hope in seemingly hopeless situations, in which all odds are against you. It underscores the importance of having an unshakable vision and how your personal experiences are signposts on the journey to success. To survive in business, you have to ask questions, the right questions. Questions like, "e;What is money?"e; "e;How does sin affect my business?"e; "e;Does positive thinking really help in this situation?"e; "e;If I get a lot of money what business venture should I pursue?'' This book answers these questions and a lot more. It argues that there is great hope for African businesses to excel if only Africans can change their mindsets, if only they have positive internal dialogues, and if only we can learn from others that have gone before us - both in Africa and beyond. It is time to unlock Africa's wealth through entrepreneurship. It starts by removing some strongholds in our minds. These are more internal than external. Let us start planning today, once these barriers are removed. It is often said that it was not raining when Noah started building the ark. Noah had some serious planning and preparations before the flood came. This is what this book seeks to achieve. It hopes to prepare you and give you hope in your entrepreneurship journey. .

Table of Contents Introduction Reasons Why You Want to Be an Entrepreneur A Job Which Is Soul Satisfying… Pay Position and Purpose People Conclusion Author Bio Publisher Introduction Being a millennial, especially if you are in the age group of 18 to 35, you consider it to be very stylish, especially in this day and age of economic crisis, globally, to being your own boss, an entrepreneur, a starter of a new future multibillion-dollar business, a founder of an empire, which is going to employ thousands of young brave hearts just like you, and all those ambitious and very beautiful dreams which everyone, young and old loves to dream sometime or the other in his life. And in the 21st century, more and more youngsters are thinking of starting up their own businesses, instead of going to work on a steady well-paying job. Their excuses range from where are the well-paying jobs out there for youngsters just starting out on their career, especially when they are fresh out of and are still studying for higher educational qualifications? At the age of 35, it is possible that you have a couple of jobs under your belt already and if you have not managed to settle down to do something, one is going to wonder when you are going to grow up, become responsible for your own future and do something concrete because you seem to be wasting your time pretty conclusively and visibly as days go by. If you ask a youngster what his ambition is his immediate reaction is, “I want to be my own boss”. If he does not know what he wants to do with his life, he is still making up his mind or he may tell you that he intends to be the owner of his own company and become one of the big sharks in the business world shark tank. Also, I am not against entrepreneurship, because it, when followed diligently, with dedication and with great effort and 100 percent commitment is going to give positive and successful results. But they are going to be long-term.

Hispanics account for more than half the population growth in the United States over the last decade. With this surge has come a dramatic spike in the number of Hispanic-owned businesses. Hispanic Entrepreneurs in the 2000s is a pioneering study of this nascent demographic. Drawing on rich quantitative data, authors Alberto Dávila and Marie T. Mora examine key economic issues facing Hispanic entrepreneurs, such as access to financial capital and the adoption and vitality of digital technology. They analyze the varying effects that these factors have on subsets of the Hispanic community, such as Mexican Americans, Puerto Ricans, Cubans, and Salvadorans, while considering gender and immigrant status. This account highlights key policies to drive the success of Hispanic entrepreneurs, while drawing out strategies that entrepreneurs can use in order to cultivate their businesses. Far-reaching and nuanced, Hispanic Entrepreneurs in the 2000s is an important study of a population that is quickly becoming a vital component of American job creation.

Dana s Handbook is an essential read for international entrepreneurship scholars as well as policymakers and practitioners concerned with the dynamics associated with the international entrepreneurship process. Succinct reviews of the literature and useful summary tables relating to key themes and studies are presented by a number of contributors. . . Paul Westhead, International Small Business Journal This is a formidable and weighty tome. . . More important than sheer quantity is consideration of the quality, and here the broad spread yet eclectic choice of the research papers is most enlightening. The contributing authors have collectively condensed much of the knowledge garnered from the past five years of this global field into one handy sourcebook. . . The end result is, indeed, a fresh recognition, if recognition still needs to be made, of the major importance of this new global growth phenomenon of international entrepreneurship. Mark Haydon, International Journal of Entrepreneurship and Innovation The Handbook is a nearly comprehensive reference work to the field that will be useful to scholars new to the area as well as those already engaged in it. . . I was impressed by the diversity of the authors. . . The Handbook is an excellent broad reference to the field. Ben Oviatt, Journal of International Business Studies Over the last few years there has been an increased interest in research on the internationalization of new ventures and the global challenges facing growing young businesses. The Handbook of Research on International Entrepreneurship has collected and synthesized the contributions of leading researchers in an effort to define and categorize the unique contributions and state-of-the-art of this emerging field. It provides a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary treatment that advances the frontiers of knowledge regarding the fundamental concepts, methods, and theories of international entrepreneurship. The Handbook should serve as both an authoritative and comprehensive reference work for researchers, and a state-of-the-art compilation of new insights for educational leaders. Ari Ginsberg, New York University Stern School of Business, US Entrepreneurship and international business have remained separate subjects for far too long. The study of international entrepreneurship thrives on the cross-fertilisation of ideas between these fields. It is one of the most dynamic research areas in economics and management. The contributors to this Handbook are the pioneers in the field, and this volume provides a definitive survey of their work. Mark Casson, University of Reading, UK These notable researchers share a common dedication to rigorous methodologies and vigorous research. Together in this volume, the researchers have assembled and presented a cross-section of tested methods, and innovative approaches. These contributions are an inspiration to younger researchers, and this bids fair to set the tone, and level of intellectual rigour and vigour for future research in the emerging field of international entrepreneurship. From the preface by Bob Kirk, University of Canterbury, New Zealand This unique reference book provides an array of diverse perspectives on international entrepreneurship, a new and emerging field of research that blends concepts and methodologies from more traditional social sciences. The Handbook includes chapters written by top researchers of economics and sociology, as well as academic leaders in the fields of entrepreneurship and international business. State-of-the-art contributions provide up-to-date literature reviews, making this book essential for the researcher of entrepreneurship and the internationalisation of entrepreneurs.

Toward Entrepreneurial Community Development is about developing entrepreneurial communities, and goes beyond theories of the firm to demonstrate how local and regional society contributes in important ways to the vitality of entrepreneurs. The literature is rich with insights about leadership and culture within SMEs, and the behaviours and attitudes of their founders, founding teams, and managers. Since most of the attention in the entrepreneurship literature is focused on firms, we wish to explore everyone else: The social environment surrounding the entrepreneur, and how leadership and culture outside the firm can have pervasive effects on the business. This book reaches across disciplinary boundaries, integrating and advancing knowledge on entrepreneurial community development. The book identifies actionable leadership strategies that can be used by literally anyone to help make a community or region a more culturally-supportive, interactive home for entrepreneurial minds. We draw from original research to compare high and low entrepreneurship communities, and present an emergent picture of how community-level actors can (or fail to) work together to support entrepreneurship in places that are culturally distant from the Silicon Valley (i.e., most places). Toward Entrepreneurial Community Development then offers techniques for entrepreneurial community leadership, including how to build lasting alliances, create an image, and harness the local culture for entrepreneurial advantage. The result is a book that provides the reader with the latest advancements and techniques in entrepreneurship development in a straight-forward, readable format. No matter the reader, Toward Entrepreneurial Community Development demonstrates how anyone, in any position, can lead a local entrepreneurship movement starting anywhere, anytime.

The rise of hybrid ventures is proof that another way of doing business is possible. Many developments in the last 15 years highlight the significance of social entrepreneurship: the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize to Grameen Bank, the efforts of scholars in studying social ventures, and the new academic programs at Ivy League universities, as well as the creation of indices such as the United Nations Human Development Index to measure non-economic issues. This book portrays these as strong indicators to support the development and sustenance of a market-based economy that also imbibes social progress and human values. This book emphasizes that awareness of the conditions under which social start-ups emerge is crucial. The authors provide a thorough and empirical analysis of the emergence of social entrepreneurship using the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) data as well as case studies from practice. From the perspective of individuals, they examine the most important characteristics of social entrepreneurs, and from a macro perspective, social ventures are studied as agents of change. A handpicked collection of successful cases of social ventures also provides the reader with an awareness of the best practices.

Shaping Entrepreneurship Research: Made, as Well as Found is a collection of readings designed to support entrepreneurship research. Focused on a worldview in which the future is open-ended and shapeable through human action – i.e. “made”, this collection reframes entrepreneurship as a science of the artificial rather than as a natural or social science. It posits an open-ended universe for the making of human artifacts even if large swathes of nature and society are not within the control of the people making them. The book explores the notion of “made” through 25 foundational readings – classics from the history of ideas. Organized into five sections, each classic is individually introduced by the editors in one of five chapters written to explain its relevance and significance for a “made” view of entrepreneurship. Readers will benefit from exposure to these classic ideas and ongoing research in a variety of areas that fall somewhat outside the line-of-sight of traditional entrepreneurship research. Both individually and collectively, the readings suggest opportunities to ask new questions and develop new ways of framing entrepreneurship research that carry the discussion beyond worlds found to worlds made as well as found. The book is crafted to be valuable to three groups of scholars: young scholars with limited or no access to research infrastructure but with a desire to participate in deep conversations; young scholars with access to research infrastructure who also desire to listen-in on a different kind of conversation; and established entrepreneurship scholars who are contemplating an alternative set of foundational ideas to support their conversations in the discipline.
