Sustainable development represents not only a major challenge for every contemporary economy, but also an existential paradigm in doing business. Over the years, it has imposed a specific entrepreneurial development, where resource allotment and business initiatives are centered around a more environmentally friendly approach, beyond the classical economics efficiency criteria. Achieving a sustainable and well functional economic model necessitates the existence of a strong entrepreneurial culture, where the business initiative must assure a high degree of inland economic potential capitalization. With entrepreneurship, both the investors and communities will gain economic benefits which will further contribute to general social stability and welfare.
This Special Issue aims to discuss currently relevant research concerning sustainable development and entrepreneurship in contemporary economies, but from the larger context of paradigms changing in a post crisis period.
We welcome submissions of review and conceptual papers, both theoretical and practical contributions, case studies and research articles with a high degree of originality and field application. All submissions will be subjected to a rigorous peer review before publication.
