Entrepreneurship is key to the success of urban economy and a source of local improvement. It is not only about job creation, but also about enhancing upward mobility and increasing citizens’ self-confidence so that they become active agents of development. Yet promoting a culture of entrepreneurship is not self-evident. How can city leaders boost entrepreneurship and create innovation ecosystems providing a framework for sustainable growth?
