cutting edge bookThe Cutting Edge: Innovation and Entrepreneurship in New Europe

Ruta Aidis & Friederike Welter, editors (2008) Edward Elgar

 This volume offers insights into ways entrepreneurs innovate and adapt to political-economic structural changes. Detailed case studies illustrate how the adoption of new technology, creation of hybrid social and economic mission ventures and strategic re-orientation led to success in these transition economies. The stories of how these teams pooled resources, persevered and devised new approaches to innovation by creating something new or internationalizing gives us a sense of the new entrepreneurial approaches needed to succeed in this region. Given there were few role models and road maps, these entrepreneurs had to learn by doing. Their stories are inspirational and provide valuable lessons for entrepreneurial success in the wake of turbulent political-economic restructuring.  Candida G. Brush, Babson College, US

Ruta Aidis, (2006) SSEES Occasional Book Series, University College London

Combining scientific rigour with an applied focus, this book describes small enterprise activity in Lithuanian in the pre-Accession period. It successfully combines quantitative analysis with qualitative insights to paint a picture of the nature of entrepreneurship and small business activity in rapidly changing transition conditions. The book also draws attention to the importance of institutional deficiencies and barriers to entrepreneurship development, a recurrent theme in a transition context.

Dr Aidis is to be congratulated in producing a volume that makes a significant contribution to the evidence base on entrepreneurship in transition conditions, with some important implications for policy development – Professor David Smallbone, Kingston University
