Entrepreneurship is crucially important for the introduction of disruptive and radical innovation. However, in Germany entrepreneurship and disruptive innovation are consistently low whereas the USA, for example, performs very well in these areas. This chapter offers insights into the relevance of entrepreneurship for a national innovation system. It illustrates the effects of policy interventions on potential entrepreneurs and shows pathways to encourage entrepreneurial behaviour and startups.
