This book chapter explores issues related to the entrepreneurial ecosystem and the role of government. Over the last three decades, entrepreneurship programmes have been promoted by governments and international agencies as one solution to innovation, economic growth and unemployment across the globe. Many governments have initiated entrepreneurial programmes in order to stimulate the creation of new ventures to promote growth and reduce unemployment. This paper examines the various policies and government interventionist programmes designed to encourage entrepreneurial development and achieve a sustainable society. It explores the complex entrepreneurial ecosystem, social entrepreneurship, and the role of universities and other institutions in supporting entrepreneurship.
