Entrepreneurship in Germany and the role of the new self‐employed
In the following article we show the meaning of entrepreneurship and self employment for the German economy after the reunification.

On the basis of three regional investigations we compared the new self‐employed according to: social and vocational‐biographical development, motivation and nature of business founded, founding qualifications and qualification strategies.
