Presentazione del volume

Research into entrepreneurial factors of success and failure continuously improves through observing and studying new players in the business world.
This work focuses on top startups in the world and seeks to understand their current habitat, what they excel in, and also the challenges awaiting them.
Based on technology and knowledge, the high-value startups analysed here capture and facilitate global tendencies, leveraging interconnectivity and sharing. They create strengths from the worldwide ecosystems in which they are immersed and which give them easier access to resources but the organisational profiles often represent contexts of weakness and fundamental challenge.
The main contribution of this work is to show the positive effects of plurality. In particular this concerns the number of founders, attitudes to participation, and a sense of belonging and cooperation; and from an external perspective, factors such as the attitude towards collaboration and the ability to make use of fertile ecosystems, or to understand and interpret global trends.
Moreover, an effort to link strategic, organizational and social profiles has been made, creating a model for understanding entrepreneurship which will also be useful for comparing future evidence.
