9780300158564: The Illusions of Entrepreneurship: The Costly Myths That Entrepreneurs, Investors, and Policy Makers Live By

There are far more entrepreneurs than most people realize. But the failure rate of new businesses is disappointingly high, and the economic impact of most of them disappointingly low, suggesting that enthusiastic would-be entrepreneurs and their investors all too often operate under a false set of assumptions.

 

This book shows that the reality of entrepreneurship is decidedly different from the myths that have come to surround it. Scott Shane, a leading expert in entrepreneurial activity in the United States and other countries, draws on the data from extensive research to provide accurate, useful information about who becomes an entrepreneur and why, how businesses are started, which factors lead to success, and which predict a likely failure.

 

The Illusions of Entrepreneurship is an essential resource for everyone who has dreamed of starting a new business, for investors in start-ups, for policy makers attempting to facilitate the formation and survival of new businesses, and for researchers interested in the economic impact of entrepreneurial activity. Scott Shane offers research-based answers to these questions and many others:

·        Why do people start businesses?

·        What industries are popular for start-ups?

·        How many jobs do new businesses create?

·        How do entrepreneurs finance their start-ups?

·        What makes some locations and some countries more entrepreneurial than others?

·        What are the characteristics of the typical entrepreneur?

·        How well does the typical start-up perform?

·        What strategies contribute to the survival and profitability of new businesses over time?

-- Steve Crawford

0;This fascinating book, by one of the most competent investigators of the subject, tells us how much we think we know about entrepreneurship that is just not true.

Baumol, Academic Director, Center for Entrepreneurial Studies, Stern School of Business, New York University

"The lessons in this book will perhaps save its readers a bundle of money that would otherwise be wasted on an ill-conceived business idea."-Morgan Lewis Jr., Inside Business -- Morgan Lewis Jr., "Inside Business"

"The belief that the U.S. is a relative haven for small businesses is one of the many bubbles burst by Scott Shane. . . . While he''s busting myths, Shane also unveils weaknesses in common entrepreneur practices." -- Mark Henricks "The Industry Standard" (02/08/2008)

"In this fact-filled, but fun-to-read book, Scott Shane demolishes many myths about entrepreneurship and in the process provides much-needed guidance to entrepreneurs, investors, and policymakers."-Steve Crawford, Director, Social, Economic, and Workforce Programs Division, National Governor's Association

"Scott has clearly and entertainingly shown why policy makers, entrepreneurs and investors should focus more attention on high growth, high potential start-ups and less on the ''me-too'' new companies than is currently the case."-David T. Morgenthaler, founder, Morgenthaler Ventures -- David T. Morgenthaler

--Mark Henricks "Entrepreneur Magazine "

"[This] book is important not just for clearing our minds of what''s erroneous but for reconsidering our public policy, which is based on the widespread feeling that startups are a magic bullet that will create a lot of jobs and generate innovation."--Harvey Schachter, "Toronto Globe and Mail"
--Harvey Schachter "Toronto Globe and Mail "
