Book coverMaureen McKelvey and Olof Zaring launched their new book Sveriges entreprenöriella ekosystem – Företag, akademi, politik, on 15 June at a seminar in Stockholm. During the launch the discussions were about how innovation and entrepreneurship can change the economy and the society. Except the editors, several of the authors, members of Parliament as well as the Deputy Director General of Vinnova participated.

PresentationThe book is edited by Maureen McKelvey and Olof Zaring, both active at the Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the School of Business, Economics and Law, at the University of Gothenburg. The chapters in the book are organized in four perspectives; scientific, business, academic and political. 32 authors investigate current phenomena in order to understand what works well and less well in the Swedish entrepreneurial ecosystem.

The book consists of new knowledge and practical advice to entrepreneurs and politicians. It discusses questions such as: How do we best support innovation processes? How we train entrepreneurs to grow? How can academia and industry collaborate? And how should the future university look like? Most of the authors are researchers, but also decision makers from the industry and government authorities are represented.
