The collection investigates the overlap between entrepreneurship and strategic management in the context of six distinct domains: resources and organizational learning, innovation, alliances and networks, internationalization, strategic leadership, and growth. Within this framework, the contributors use both traditional and new theoretical approaches in order to further the reader's understanding of wealth creation in the current business environment. What emerges is an exciting new perspective that will shape future research and managerial practice.
