There is growing worldwide interest in entrepreneurship and new business development. This has become particularly widespread in Sweden during the last 10 years. We see more and more professorships in entrepreneurship at our universities, new credit-bearing courses on entrepreneurship are emerging and different training programmes for those who want to start new firms are being developed. Among established firms, we are also seeing much activity, for example Swedish firms such as Ericsson, Telia and Saab have in recent years instituted activities to stimulate fresh ideas through intrapreneurship and take advantage of the energy and ideas of individuals involved in the day-to-day operation of their businesses. The trend is clear — the number of initiatives aimed at stimulating the entrepreneurial behaviour of individuals is growing.
