Fichter, K., & Hurrelmann, K. (2021). Sustainability-oriented business incubation: Framing and supporting sustainable entrepreneurship. In S. Mian, M. Klofsten, & W. Lamine, Handbook of Research on Business and Technology Incubation and Acceleration (pp. 478–495). Edward Elgar Publishing.
The Chapter discusses sustainability-oriented business incubation as a relatively new and emerging topic. First, the authors provide a conceptual framework which makes it possible to identify starting points and key factors for effectively integrating sustainability into the framing, design and impact assessment of business incubation programs. Second, they provide a comprehensive overview of tools and methods which can be used for sustainability-oriented business model development. Third, for the first time they provide data on the use of these tools and methods in business incubation practice and entrepreneurship research.Ansehen
