Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 July 2017).
Interests: social entrepreneurship; service industries; management, business
Sustainable entrepreneurship is a new subarea of entrepreneurship  that is profiled as one of the concepts that, in conjunction with the business strategy, redirects organizational performance research towards a new direction [2,3]. In addition, with the same goal of improving performance, some authors indicate the suitability of adopting this type of multiple strategic orientation [4,5].
In this Special Issue, we will focus on sustainability from the entrepreneurial point of view. Specifically, in this area, we are called to change our approach towards a long-term growth, replacing the short-term vision adopted in recent times [6–8].
The aim of this Special Issue is to make a relevant contribution presenting work with new innovative knowledge in the field of entrepreneurial sustainability. Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following: entrepreneurial sustainability and management innovation; entrepreneurial sustainability and decision-making; entrepreneurial sustainability strategies; business creation within sustainability; entrepreneurial sustainability in marketing; sustainability innovation in business; energy; and climate in the industry.
Prof. Dr. Domingo Ribeiro-Soriano
