This textbook describes the history of Finnish entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship from the mid-19th century to the present. The book presents an informative analysis of the development of entrepreneurship and provides insights into the development of the Finnish economy and the manner in which entrepreneurship has evolved with the development of society. The book explains the relationship between entrepreneurship and society by describing the change and development of institutional conditions in entrepreneurship. It also describes current phenomena within entrepreneurship, such as the entrepreneurial ecosystem and collaboration in entrepreneurship education. Entrepreneurship has become an important topic of social debate, and much has been written about the phenomenon. Still, more research is needed as a basis to understand what entrepreneurship is. There has been a failure within the entrepreneurship literature to combine the different aspects of entrepreneurship into a single entity as well as little research into the history of Finnish entrepreneurship. The book can be used for entrepreneurship education in different educational settings. While it is mainly intended for higher education, it can also be used in lower educational institutions, teacher entrepreneurship training, and in the further training of entrepreneurs.
