: Entrepreneurship research often pre-supposes similarities between national contexts despite evidence of extensive differences. This timely study focuses on the important issue of new venture creation using a variety of data sources, methods and theories. The authors demonstrate the factors that aid or hinder new venture creation in a number of settings. The empirical context underpinning this research is Sweden - a small open economy with a renowned quality of data that allows important research questions to be uniquely addressed with great concern for relevance and policy implications. Collectively, the contributors to this book show the factors that aid or hinder new venture creation in the expansive setting that Sweden offers entrepreneurial ventures. They present engaging and significant work, and consider issues of great importance to scholars and policymakers alike.
