Entrepreneurship and Global Cities: Diversity, Opportunity and Cosmopolitanism
2019, Routledge • 136 pages pages, Hardback • ISBN 9780367140564

Nada Kakabadse, Professor of Policy, Governance and Ethics at Henley Business School has co-authored a new book with Dr Nikolai Mouraviev, Senior Lecturer in Business and Management at Abertay University in Dundee, Scotland.

'Entrepreneurship and Global Cities: Diversity, Opportunity and Cosmopolitanism' delivers a fascinating insight into why uniquely cosmopolitan centres are proving so successful in attracting and developing entrepreneurs from across the world. The authors examine how policies and practise in cities including Auckland, Berlin, Dubai, London, New York, Shanghai and Singapore are shaping entrepreneurship and supporting vital economic growth, sustainability and prosperity.

Professor Kakabadse comments: "Successful entrepreneurship rests on the pillars of diversity and business opportunity. Cosmopolitanism is facilitating individualised value and solutions, meaning entrepreneurs, businesses, families, special interest groups, governments, NGOs and virtual communities can all enjoy the benefits offered by diversity."

Complimented by case studies from Dubai, Hamburg, Istanbul, Karachi, Kiev, London, Moscow and Tel Aviv, this book is ideal for students, teachers and professionals who want to better understand how globalisation and urban development is currently enriching cities.


"The book is truly novel given it offers a new perspective on the topic of cosmopolitan cities as entrepreneurial hubs. It links together entrepreneurship, national culture and gender to critically discuss what represents an interesting mixture of opportunities and challenges for growing cities worldwide. The case studies of specific cosmopolitan cities from around the world offer empirical evidence in support of theoretical discourse held." - Viachaslau Filimonau, Bournemouth University, UK
