• 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

• Pays much-needed attention to the growing role of local governments in fostering entrepreneurship and innovation
