Broadening the Entrepreneurial Perspective
In this paper entrepreneurial literature is combined with industrial district literature to try and explain regional success in an Irish industrial sector. A new approach called interpreneurship is introduced as an explanatory concept for regional success in an Irish case study. A number of conclusions are drawn regarding the extent to which the interpreneurship approach is valid and the authors recommend that this is an important concept for further research. The main aim of this paper is to explain regional success in one particular Irish manufacturing sector. Entrepreneurship theory is combined with industrial district theory leading one to develop a concept called interpreneurship to explain the success of an Irish region.
