Enterprising Places: leadership and governance networks

Lee Pugalis, Joyce Liddle

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


This volume focuses on the role and importance of place in the pursuit, stimulation and generation of entrepreneurial synergies. Mobilising an ‘enterprise surge’ in specific places has become the leitmotif of contemporary spatial interventions and state-sponsored strategies. Indeed, in the aftermath of the 2007 credit crunch and subsequent global financial meltdown, many governments around the globe are operating with severely reduced budget envelopes. This is often in parallel with rising demands for the provision and enhanced quality of public and welfare services. These processes combined have heightened public policy imperatives associated with ‘enabling enterprise’. Consequently, the search for entrepreneurial synergies in places has intensified the need for mechanisms for delivering broader social, cultural, environmental, economic and political objectives.
