This chapter explores the concept of entrepreneurial leadership and how it differs from other forms of leadership, and why entrepreneurial leadership (EL) is critical to our understanding of new firm creation and growth. The chapter also discusses how EL impacts a firm’s culture and sustainability through the leadership succession process. This chapter builds on a more extensive review of the literature associated with the measurement of entrepreneurial leadership.

The authors ask the question: What happens after a crowdfunding campaign? They argue that ‘success’ in the crowdfunding context is often defined as raising funds in a crowdfunding campaign, but although this is an important milestone, it only represents a beginning of building a viable business. This chapter reviews what is known about firms and projects after they have successfully raised funds (or failed to raise funds) on crowdfunding platforms.
