Introduction.In the past decades, regional development has been a permanent source of interest among researchers and policymakers all over the world. The importance of entrepreneurship in the development of the national regional economies has been recognized largely in the specialty literature

Aim of the study. The aims of the present paper are to emphasize the importance of the rural entrepreneurship involvement in the regional development and to analyse the results of a research regarding the cooperation between the stakeholders of the local and regional development. A set of two hypotheses has been tested by using the data of a sociological survey focused on entrepreneurship and on the potential entrepreneurs from the rural area, belonging to five development regions. The results of our research highlight that the relationships between the rural area business environment and the other actors involved in the regional development (local public authorities, professional associations, institutions centred on regional development) are influenced by the framework of organisation and cooperation with the local business environment.

Introduction. Individuals in a society often have different degrees of aversion about risk. When individuals with equal skills take risky activities with a high potential for profit, such as the establishment of a large business, some associations fail, others not. The presence of successful and unsuccessful collaborations in a society results in economic inequality, even when all individuals are identical in terms of level and field of education, the decisive factor is taking calculated risks or not.

Aim of the study. I will present in this paper the results of a study that I conducted in March 2014 related to influence of taking risks involved in opening a business as well as flexibility and adaptability on labor market.

Introduction. It has long been recognized that entrepreneurship is the vital force that drives innovation and economic growth. Entrepreneurship is shaped by a portfolio of forces and factors.

Aim of the study. In this paper we want to underline that entrepreneurial leadership is critical for the achievement of entrepreneurial goals. Also we try to identify commonalities between the two domains, entrepreneurship and leadership, with a particular focus on what entrepreneurship could gain from more explicit incorporation of some leadership issues. Since change is constant, organizations need to be more flexible on their path to growth. In this process, entrepreneurs undergo a process of identity change by acquiring new behaviors and skills that sustain organizational transformation. Moreover, by adopting a sympathetic leadership style, entrepreneurs accommodate both creativity and organizational synergies that may help their organizations to develop and prosper.

Introduction. As a decisive factor in the existing economic competition in a world increasingly globalized, a market accessible through digitisation and unprecedented information speed, innovation has become the key objective that makes the difference between “to be” or “not to be” for every economic actor who aims to play a leading role on the market. Innovation has become a concept so widely spread that one cannot conceive the success of a business without this factor, whether we are talking about the innovation of a product, process or service or marketing and organization structure. Innovation has also became a key concept for public insitutions that intend to keep up with developments in technology, under the pressure from a society increasingly more connected to technology. The European Union promotes the concept of innovation at the center of the development strategy for the economic sector, thus generating the vision that governs three key tools: Research framework program, the cohesion policy and the framework program for competitiveness and innovation.

Aim of the study. In the present study we start from the definition of the concept of innovation. We approach the notion of innovative management perspective in the context of accessing European funding programs. Ultimately, the purpose of innovation management is the efficiency of innovative economic activity, i.e. in increasing productivity in balance with the principles of sustainable development. European funding programs stimulate the innovation management in entrepreneurship, public institutions andNGOs, whether we are talking about innovation in the economic field, at the level of social services or in the field of public services.

Introduction. There are a lot of factors, both internal and external (social, financial, technological, political, legislative, demographic) that influence the activity of a company. Its adaptability and flexibility are decisively influenced by the entrepreneur’s education, but also by the group he leads and by the innovative spirit that exists at the organizational level. The local and global information flows provide support for the development of businesses that once seemed impossible. The entrepreneur has the capacity to take major risks, to identify opportunities and to ensure the company’s sustainability.

Aim of the study. The paper aims at presenting some aspects regarding the current level of entrepreneurship and the way in which education and innovation influence it.

Introduction. The dynamics of the business environment has led to a growing competition. Everyone dreams of their own business. The question is: how do I create a business and how do I develop it? Do I have entrepreneurial skills? Given the decline in purchasing power, one of the most sensitive aspects of the economic system is also emphasized: the price. The difference between companies lies in the service provided for consumers as an additional element for purchasing the product.

Aim of the study. A new type of economic offer appears: the experience, which represents the quality of the time that the consumer spends with that company. What you sell is the very experience. Experiences are a new source of value and are events that involve people at a personal level. The new offer of experiences occurs whenever a company intentionally uses its services as a stage and its goods as stage props in order to involve a client.

Introduction. The development of entrepreneurship programs in Romania is a clear need for the current problems of the Romanian education and labor market at the national level. However, no matter how performing and successful the programs implemented in this field are, inefficient communication at the institutional level and their poor promotion will lead to their visible failure and a false interplay.

Aim of the study. Programs and public policies on reducing unemployment through the development of entrepreneurship at national level are a necessity for Romania. But these can not be implemented at the desired level without clear rules on the communication process between implementing institutions and citizens, between collaborating institutions and other actors involved in the promotion process.

Introduction. Romania has been looking for answers for many years on reducing youth unemployment. The methods by which public actors have proposed to implement policies in this area have not been successful. An overcoming of them and a decisive change of them is useful today and it is also required for the economic and social future of this country.

Aim of the study. Entrepreneurship in Romania could be one of the answers sought by public actors at the national level, but it must be fully aware of the important elements of this, the necessary resources and a real analysis of them, but first of all, an analysis of the target group directly involved. How could Romania do these things? By imposing and observing conditions at national level, but also through a visible transition on the development of various programs of entrepreneurship in Romania.

During its evolution, the concept of entrepreneurship has been embedded in many various schools of thought on entrepreneurship. As entrepreneurship is interdisciplinary, it puts together knowledge and combines concepts from different fields of study and schools of thought.

Aim of the study. The aims of the paper are to briefly define the concept of school of thought and to exemplify its use in the field of entrepreneurship. The paper is based on a quantitative research method. It shows that the existence of the schools of thought on entrepreneurship proved to be beneficial for the development of entrepreneurship.
