‘Digital technologies have fundamentally reshaped entrepreneurship. Uniquely and deeply informed by both scholarship and business practice, this book offers an up-to-date account of entrepreneurship in the digital age while addressing sub-topics of great contemporary interest, such as disruption, external enablement, design thinking, and the process nature of venture creation.’

‘Nzembayie and Buckley have provided a digital entrepreneurial process model to guide digital entrepreneurs in this volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world of the 21st century. That their model is grounded in an action research design provides an invitation for other digital entrepreneurs to exploit their experience in like rigorous, reflective and relevant action design research processes to advance the growth of digital ventures.’
