Understanding how accelerators build an entrepreneurial ecosystem, generate innovations and create new technologies is key for anyone wishing to nurture a start-up company. This book compares the success of accelerators in comparison to the independent growth of new companies or incubators through a series of in-depth studies. Accelerators: Successful Venture Creation and Growth examines how the organisational structures and practices of start-up accelerators generate innovations and identify new technologies, products and services. Mike Wright and Israel Drori have developed an entrepreneurial approach to this topic, exploring accelerators and start-ups as temporary organisations. This allows the contributing authors to highlight issues relating to both internal and external processes. This book focuses on an important entrepreneurship trend that is growing, but has not yet undergone thorough research, and as such, is key for anyone wishing to understand the topic. This would be a stimulating and valuable read for entrepreneurs, policymakers and students looking to enter accelerators.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`This well-made book is a must have for all scholars interested in accelerators.' -- Raj K. Shankar, The Journal of Entrepreneurship
`The editors have assembled a distinguished group of scholars to weigh in on a timely, important, and under-researched topic: the role of accelerators in venture creation and growth. The end result is a lucid and insightful book. This is a "must read" for scholars, policymakers, and practitioners with an interest in the role of incubators/accelerators in entrepreneurship and regional economic development.' -- Donald Siegel, Arizona State University, US
`In this book, Mike Wright and Israel Drori do a masterful job in bringing together some of the best thinkers about accelerators and their growing role in today's dynamic entrepreneurial ecosystems. These authors address the functioning, contributions and the factors that shape the success of these accelerators. They also address how to manage them for greater value creation. The chapters are well written and highly integrated, making for a great scholarly contribution to the field of entrepreneurship.' -- Shaker A. Zahra, University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, US
`Professors Wright and Drori have written the definitive book on accelerators, which are an important new vehicle for supporting entrepreneurship. I recommend this book to anyone interested in contemporary entrepreneurship.' -- Martin Kenney, University of California, Davis, US
`Scholars as well as thought leaders in business and policy have been searching for the elixir to entrepreneurial growth. They need look no further. Wright and Dori have assembled and directed a leading team of internationally acclaimed scholar to highlight and analyze the key and unique role that incubators play in spurring entrepreneurial growth. The volume is loaded with compelling insights that will be invaluable to academics and practitioners alike.' -- David Audretsch, Indiana State University, US
