Lab For Entrepreneurship And Development

Lab for Entrepreneurship and Development is Emerald's innovative book series on the study of entrepreneurship and development, striving to set the agenda for advancing research on entrepreneurship in the context of finance, economic development, innovation, and the society at large. The Lab for Entrepreneurship and Development (LEAD), a now-independent research lab that first started at the Institute of Quantitative Social Sciences (IQSS) at Harvard University, which aims to “generate and share knowledge about entrepreneurship and development across cultural and disciplinary boundaries.” With the overarching and ambitious aim of using the book series as to synthesize interdisciplinary research by academics and students to advance our understanding of modern entrepreneurship, we welcome proposals for chapters and future books in the series.

All books in this series will be index by Scopus.
