            It is now widely recognised that in regions like Africa, for economic and other reasons, the public sector has had to transition away from several areas of the economy and allow private enterprise, especially scalable start-ups and new ventures, to enter and flourish if economic ...development and employment are to grow. There is, however, a training and education gap since entrepreneurship is rarely taught formally at African universities and, when it is, it is often approached from a Western perspective that may not be appropriate given that African environments are significantly different from most Western ones in terms of economic infrastructure and political considerations. This book allows readers to the understand the African entrepreneurial context by guiding them through the principal stages in the life of a new venture, and offers approaches, both Western and indigenous, that can inform their entrepreneurial actions. It concludes by examining some specialised topics, including female, youth and social entrepreneurship, as well as real estate and technology. Exercises throughout the book will enable readers to evaluate their motivations and preparedness for entrepreneurship and learn how to communicate a new venture's key features to potential stakeholders. By focusing on the distinctive features of entrepreneurship in the African context, and taking a conversational tone, this is an informative and practical text that will be useful for students of Global Entrepreneurship and Business as well as actual and prospective entrepreneurs in the private, non-profit and public sectors.

            Container terminals are constantly being challenged to adjust their throughput capacity to match fluctuating demand. Examining the optimization problems encountered in today's container terminals, Vehicle Scheduling in Port Automation: Advanced Algorithms for Minimum Cost Flow Pr...oblems, Second Edition provides advanced algorithms for handling the scheduling of automated guided vehicles (AGVs) in ports. The research reported in this book represents a complete package that can help readers address the scheduling problems of AGVs in ports. The techniques presented are general and can easily be adapted to other areas. This book is ideal for port authorities and researchers, including specialists and graduate students in operation research. For specialists, it provides novel and efficient algorithms for network flow problems. For students, it supplies the most comprehensive survey of the field along with a rigorous formulation of the problems in port automation. This book is divided into two parts. Part one explores the various optimization problems in modern container terminals. The second part details advanced algorithms for the minimum cost flow (MCF) problem and for the scheduling problem of AGVs in ports. The book classifies optimization problems into five scheduling decisions. For each decision, it supplies an overview, formulates each of the decisions as constraint satisfaction and optimization problems, and then covers possible solutions, implementation, and performance. The book extends the dynamic network simplex algorithm, the fastest algorithm for solving the minimum cost flow problem, and develops four new advanced algorithms. In order to verify and validate the algorithms presented, the authors discuss the implementation of the algorithm to the scheduling problem of AGVs in container terminals.

            Sweden has a long history of ambitious environmental, energy and climate policy. Due to the large amount of data available it is possible to perform statistically sound analysis and assess long term changes in productivity, efficiency, and technological development. The data at h...and together with Sweden's ambitious energy and climate policy provides a unique opportunity to shed light on pertinent policy issues. The Impact of Climate Policy on Environmental and Economic Performance answers several key questions: What is the effect of the CO2 tax on environmental performance and profitability of firms? Does including emissions in productivity measurement of the industrial firm matter? Did the introduction of the EU ETS spur technological development in the Swedish industrial firm? What air pollutant is most inhibiting production when regulated? Being aware and learning from the Swedish case can be very relevant for countries that are in the process of shaping their climate policy. This book is of great importance to researchers and policy makers who are interested in environmental economics, industrial economics and climate change.

            The Best Version of You: A mission to create equality and income. Reading the content in this refreshing, unique take on living life will put you in a thought-process never seen before. A timeless idea with a new refreshing change. With income inequality, and a little hope for a ...better future, our politicians and education system have capitalized on it. The result is a growing number of debt, division, and depression. The only way to climb out of this nightmare seems to be a revolution, and in these author's opinion, an entrepreneurial revolution. Moran, Pampena, and Lackey show us the ignored realism that is in our everyday lives and how we can cut through the imaginary glue that we are stuck to. The authors demonstrate the ability that we all have as humans to make ourselves happy, free, and rich to ultimately live our dream lives.
