Entrepreneurial Growth in Industrial Districts
: four italian cases/ Fernando G. Alberti, Salvatore Sciascia, ... - Northampton, MA : Edward Elgar, 2008. - 269 p. ; 24 cm.

Entrepreneurial Growth in Industrial Districts illustrates that Industrial Districts (ID) have dramaticálly changed over the part three decader: theMarshallian notion of a cluster of small firms has been vastly transformed by the emergente of rapidly growing firms.
This book stems from the contributors' academic and professional experience in the fields of Italian industrial districts, strategie management and entrepreneurship. The authors highlight the need to understand and identify how entrepreneurial growth can be effectively sustained in ID firms. Four case studies (Alessi, Geox, Illycaffè, Luxottica) are utilised to demonstrate the process of ID firms' growth via the lens of corporate entrepreneurship.
This unique book will be highly regarded by undergraduate students and researchers in the fields of entrepreneurship and industrial districts. Practitioners, entrepreneurs and policy makers will also find this book of great interest.
