By Editors Meltem İnce YENİLMEZ & Burak DARICI

     Some parts of our today world are growing old because of how they have advanced in medicine, better nutrition, increased their life expectancy, as well as provided better care for the aged. As such, people can be more active in terms of how long they can work, which means there will be an increase in the value for everyone. During this period of business and social change, entrepreneurship plays a great role in the creation of employment opportunities and wealth, mostly in conjunction with public institutions. That is why the support for entrepreneurship is growingrapidly in the developed world. In the previous years, we have seen how demanding business ventures have impacted the world greatly. We are talking of technology-focused projects that have changed the way people see life. Regarding wealth and job creation, the emerging solutions through such developments, the international and national impact has been massive. Ventures like that are the exception and not the norm irrespective of how relevant they are. That said, they are a subset of the mainstream entrepreneurship, representing where every economy wants to be, and attracting concerns from researchers. As we recognize these ventures, our focus is to unravel the huge opportunities of these entrepreneurial activity, highlighting and exploring the gray areas, so that everyone can benefit from the exposition. It should be stated that when these projects are viewed independently, they don’t pull as much weight. But, when viewed together, you notice an attractive balance, making it a reasonable contributor to UN’s proposal for sustainable development. Through this publication, the editors want to open up the frontiers of entrepreneurship research so that new avenues can be leveraged for the collective development of everyone. This book offers a platform for possible uses, as well as contexts for research, study, scholarship, and academic inquiry that can be used by researchers, students, and scholars concerning innovation as well as social capital with organizational setups. It is equally suited for practitioners and policy makers. The book is composed of 19 chapters that are grouped into 4 sections, according to each chapter’s theme.
