If you are looking for an engaging textbook, rich in learning features, which will help you to guide your students through the process of developing and launching a start-up, this is it. With his innovative New Venture Creation Framework, Paul Burns breaks the venture creation process up into three key phases: Research, Business Model Development, and Launch. At every stage crucial steps and considerations are revealed, providing comprehensive coverage of the subject. Practical advice is combined with academic research, enabling you to run a course which is both relevant and rigorous. 

The second edition of this popular textbook is essential reading for any undergraduate or postgraduate course in new venture creation. It will also prove useful for shorter courses on entrepreneurship and in enterprise centres and entrepreneurship hubs.

I am delighted that a second edition of this book has been produced. It combines the practical aspects of entrepreneurship with Academic insights and recent theoretical developments. The new venture creation process is well supported thanks to the Framework, practical exercises and case illustrations.

If you are looking for a proficiently composed and carefully narrated book on entrepreneurial start-ups that beautifully balances historical insights with present-day case stories, creativity with planning, and research with a hands-on, how-to guide, this is it. Paul Burns efficiently covers all the parts of the venture creation process without resorting to shortcuts. As a reader you are continuously learning, which only goes to prove that this tour de force has emerged from that rare asset we call expertise. – Daniel Hjorth, Copenhagen Business School, Denmark
New Venture Creation provides a holistic approach to start-ups and covers ALL the topics in detail. The impressive layout makes it easy to read, easy to follow, and easy to understand, but more importantly the Case insights from different countries make it applicable worldwide. Suitable for a diverse audience, from the graduate who wants to start a business to the skilled craftsman with limited formal education, I would highly recommend this book. – Iegshaan Ariefdien, Chief Operating Officer, Furntech, South Africa
This well-written and easy-to-understand book does not just teach students about the subject but prepares them for their own new venture. The Workbook exercises at the end of each chapter are indispensable tools for revising important aspects - the ‘know how’, the ‘know who’ and the ‘need to know’ of establishing and developing new ventures. – Muhammad Azam Roomi, Prince Mohammad Bin Salman College of Business and Entrepreneurship, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
