This book reveals how government and its allies (like business associations) can help people to start businesses that have the potential to grow rapidly and make major contributions to the economy. Although many entrepreneurs think of government as the enemy, and many policy-makers simply ignore entrepreneurs and potential entrepreneurs, this volume argues that the two groups should be allies, since their goals of building a vibrant economy and new businesses are interconnected. Contributors to the volume assert that mutual education and careful attention to the design of new policies will help this alliance to grow stronger.
