For this special issue of Small Business Economics (SBEJ), we seek research into the emergence, dynamics, consequences, and public policy context of the entrepreneurship industry. The term industry highlights how entrepreneurship is not just an activity – like launching a new venture – but also an ensemble of economic activities organized around the common aim of promoting entrepreneurship. Encouraging scholarship around entrepreneurship as an industry, this special issue offers a lens for theorizing the social and economic context of entrepreneurship.
