This book dispels the myth that entrepreneurship cannot be taught, by breaking down the business start-up process into a seven-stage New Venture Creation Framework. Step-by-step, chapter-by-chapter, it guides you through the whole process of planning for a new venture - from generating an idea, through developing the business model, and raising finance. It combines practical advice from entrepreneurs with academic research and theory.

Features include:

* Quotes from entrepreneurs - provide both inspiration and practical tips on how to create a new venture.

* Case insights - over 70 cases from around the globe illustrate how a range of organizations have tackled issues in the real world.

* Academic insights - these provide coverage of recent research and theoretical underpinning in a digestible form.

* The New Venture Framework Exercises featured at the end of each chapter progressively build a comprehensive business plan.

New Venture Creation is both inspirational and practical, and will equip budding entrepreneurs with all the tools they need to undertake a successful new venture.
