The forthcoming era of Industry 4.0 is expected to profoundly impact the world’s economy and the socioeconomic lives of billions of people. Entrepreneurs’ communities around the globe have already experienced early but tremendous changes and are starting to adapt to its emerging financial aspects, such as the rise of “computational entrepreneurship” (see: https://doi.org/10.21511/ppm.17(1).2019.11). It is the high time to seek to better understand the possible changes, both incremental and disruptive, in the ways that entrepreneurial firms, entrepreneurial endeavors, and perhaps entrepreneurial academics (thanks to the growing philanthropic funding to science and tech ventures) respond to their current and future financing needs. The need for this understanding will be increasingly important since entrepreneurial activities, and ventures gradually dominate the business landscape of the world, and their successes or failures will ultimately determine the future prosperity of societies. Therefore, this Special Issue invites scholarly and practicing researchers from different academic backgrounds to join hands in such an attempt to acquire new knowledge and insights into entrepreneurial finance at the dawn of Industry 4.0, by making scholarly contributions in the forms of original research (theoretical or empirical), academic discussions (conceptual discussion or perspectives), or literature reviews.
