While there is a near consensus in the literature that entrepreneurship has a positive impact on the economy, very little is known about the role of entrepreneurship and start-ups in the realm of environment. This workshop, funded by the ESRC, British Academy of Management and University of Southampton, aims to bring together researchers to present and discuss their recent results in relation to “Green Start-ups”.
