Abstract

This article introduces the Special Issue, “Varieties of entrepreneurship: Exploring whether, how and why cultural and creative entrepreneurship differs from other varieties”. The aim of the Special Issue is to contribute to a more nuanced understanding of how this particular variety of entrepreneurship emerges, is affected and develops over time. We present the three broad topics addressed in the Special Issue—knowledge, meaning and identity—and position them in the wider academic context of understanding value realization through entrepreneurship in the cultural and creative industries. The six articles presented in the Special Issue come from and combine different streams of literatures, yet jointly they gradually develop their own, hopefully complementary, interpretations, which provide inspiration for a promising agenda for further research.
