Overview

Combining emerging trends in collaboration, democratization, and urbanization, this book examines the emergence of entrepreneurship and innovation as a primarily urban phenomenon, explains why urban environments are rapidly attracting global innovators across three distinct forms of "urbanpreneurship," and lights the path forward for entrepreneurs, innovators, and city governments.

• Documents how the integration of three converging trends—collaboration, democratization, and urbanization—contribute to what the author calls the "Urbanpreneur Spiral"

• Presents eye-opening insights and reflections on the current and future state of entrepreneurship and innovation in society

• Explains why today's cities are the primary source of opportunities for new entrepreneurs

• Pays much-needed attention to the growing role of local governments in fostering entrepreneurship and innovation
