Abstract

In 1988, Murray Low and Ian MacMillan published a review of developments in entrepreneurship research and identified challenges for the future (Low and MacMillan, 1988). Since the appearance of their paper, there has been an explosion of entrepreneurship research. This Special Issue had its genesis a decade after the appearance of the Low and MacMillan article, when nineteen scholars from nine countries were invited to two workshops held at the Jönköping International Business School (JIBS) in Sweden in the fall of 1998. The purpose of the workshops was, and the purpose of this Special Issue is, to take stock of the developments of the past decade and to identify directions for future research.
