    Abstract/Description

    Many national, regional or local agencies have created policies to directly support entrepreneurs so as to increase the number of businesses or aid the competitiveness and expansion of existing small firms. This Working paper considers what is meant by the term entrepreneurship and the implications of these meanings for different policies to promote entrepreneurship, including social entrepreneurship. These include predominantly macro-level policies such as economic stability, taxation and regulations, together with regional and local policies focusing upon advice, training, finance, technology transfer, markets access, physical infrastructure and the characteristics of the locality
