The Startup as a Result of Innovative Entrepreneurship

  • Agnieszka Skala
Chapter

Abstract

This chapter presents the characteristics of startups as a manifestation of innovative entrepreneurship in the era of digital revolution. The chapter concludes with a developed universal definition of a startup. First, the new market reality is presented, shaped as a result of the digital, social, and economic revolution, which resulted in the emergence of new, specific forms of organisation—startups. Next, the existing definitions of a startup are discussed and a model of startup development process is developed. These analyses are illustrated with examples of Polish and foreign startups. Finally, the concept of the so-called spiral definition of a startup is proposed.

Keywords
