The Emergence of the Urban Entrepreneur: How the Growth of Cities and the Sharing Economy Are Driving a New Breed of Innovators

• Presents eye-opening insights and reflections on the current and future state of entrepreneurship and innovation in society

• Explains why today’s cities are the primary source of opportunities for new entrepreneurs
