About this title:

Synopsis: Contrary to traditional belief, entrepreneurism is not just about making money, nor is it merely about starting up a venture or owning a small business - it is a way of life, applicable to all human economic activities. Living on a planet with finite resources, humanity is sustainable only if there is constant pursuit of innovation and creativity, not just for personal gain but also for the common good. This book provides concise definitions of 'entrepreneurism', 'entrepreneurship', 'entrepreneur' and 'entrepreneurial' for education and application within the framework of the market economy; acts as a signpost pointing the way toward balancing the short-term need for survival with the long-term need for sustainable growth; and serves as a philosophical beacon that will guide individuals, particularly, business leaders, toward actions in the interest of humanity.

About the Author: Professor Raymond W Y Kao is currently serving as Adjunct Professor of Entrepreneurism, Michael G DeGroote School of Business, McMaster University, Canada, and Quality Assessor to the Postsecondary Education Quality Assessment Board, Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities, Government of Ontario, Canada. Professor Kao has also served as Shaw Foundation Professor, Nanyang School of Business, Technological University, Singapore; Professor of Entrepreneurship, University of Toronto; International Human Resources Development Expert, United Nations Industrial Development Organization; President of International Council for Small Business; and Member of Small Business Consultative Committee to the Minister of Small Business, Government of Canada. All his work and publications are dedicated to the philosophy of entrepreneurism, focusing not just on the matters of business interest and entrepreneurship development, but also on stewardship accountability, social and global responsibility.

Dr Kenneth R Kao is a tenured Associate Professor, Faculty of Medicine, Memorial University of Newfoundland, Canada. Prior to his tenured appointment, he was an Assistant Professor at the Terry Fox Research Laboratories, Memorial University of Newfoundland. Dr Kao was trained in Marine Biological Laboratory, Woods Hole, MA USA, and served as a Postdoctoral Fellow with the Department of Zoology, University of Cambridge UK, and Samuel Lunenfeld Research Institute, Mount Sinai Hospital, Toronto, Canada. He has published a wide range of papers in prestigious journals such as Nature, Journal of Biological Chemistry, Biology of the Cell, Development Biology and Mechanisms of Development.

Dr Rowland R Kao is presently holding the position of Research Scientist at the Department of Zoology, Oxford University, UK. He received his PhD in Physics from the University of Guelph, Canada, and later joined the New Zealand Pastoral Agriculture Research Institute Limited. Before joining Oxford, he was a member of the research team at the Institute of Animal Health (IAH), Compton, UK. Dr Kao, together with eight other scientists from Oxford, IAH Compton and Edinburgh, has recently published a paper in Science entitled: "The Potential Size and Duration of an Epidemic of Bovine Spongiform Encephalophathy in British Sheep". This paper has garnered a tremendous amount of attention from the United Kingdom and European Union countries (see Roger Highfield, "Is There A Hidden Sheep Epidemic? The Legacy of Mad Cow Disease", The Daily Telegraph, London).
