Based on resource conservation theory (RCT), we examine the role of two types of family support – emotional and instrumental support – in the work-family balance and subjective well-being of small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) owners. Using a sample of French SME owners, our results show that work-family balance mediates the relationship between family support and the subjective well-being of SME owners. Surprisingly, while emotional support has a positive association, instrumental support has a negative association with SME owners’ subjective well-being via work-family balance. We provide a theoretical explanation by integrating the ROC theory with the threat to self-esteem model, and offer practical implications of this study

La valeur perçue du produit décrit l'évaluation globale d'un produit par les consommateurs. Elle prend en compte la mesure dans laquelle un produit répond aux besoins et aux attentes d'un consommateur. Elle prend en compte la mesure dans laquelle un produit répond aux besoins et aux attentes d'un consommateur. La perception de la valeur d'un produit peut être considérée comme un compromis entre la qualité et le prix. Toutefois, des définitions plus nuancées tiennent compte de la nature complexe de la valeur perçue des produits et font référence à ses dimensions : émotionnelle (sentiments générés), sociale (amélioration de l'image sociale de soi), qualité/performance (attentes en matière de qualité et de performance) et prix/valeur de l'argent (utilité et coût du produit).

inscrites dans les codes de conduite des banques, et comment font-ils face aux dilemmes éthiques ? Pour répondre à ces questions, nous avons mené une enquête en ligne non incitative auprès d'employés de gestion de patrimoine de l'entité juridique suisse d'une grande banque multinationale. Nous avons utilisé des questions de jugement situationnel pour estimer la compréhension et le niveau d'adhésion attendu aux principes du CdC. Nous montrons que le fait de formuler les questions sous l'étiquette "sécurité financière" augmente la précision des réponses et que l'honnêteté des employés aide à orienter leur décisions vers l'intégrité dans les dilemmes éthiques. Ainsi, outre la validation d'une méthode permettant de tester le niveau de compréhension de le Code.

The concept of an ‘entrepreneurial ecosystem’ has become a major means for both theorizing and making policy decisions concerning entrepreneurship, innovation and economic development. The notion of an entrepreneurial ecosystem captures the way in which entrepreneurship is increasingly performed and undertaken via the innate interdependencies existing between the elements and components of what are essentially biotic communities (consisting of complex interactions between human agents and an array of tangible and intangible components). This book takes a multi-lensed view and perspective on the emergence of entrepreneurship within ecosystems in cities and regions, the manner in which these ecosystems evolve and operate, as well as their future development. This introductory chapter provides some initial theoretical background relating the nature of ecosystems in the context of entrepreneurship and urban and regional development before providing a summary of the book’s three parts: (1) The Emergence of Entrepreneurial Ecosystems; (2) The Evolution of Entrepreneurial Ecosystems; and (3) The Future of Entrepreneurial Ecosystems.
The aim of this study is to provide investors, policymakers and others with information on how greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and green innovation affect corporate financial performance. Although reporting by corporate venture capital (CVC) firms on GHG emissions as well as their green innovation has increased significantly, especially in the last two decades, little is known about how these two factors affect financial performance.

In this paper, we leverage the first randomized control trial of inventors at the USPTO to demonstrate that granted patent rights provide substantial benefits to independent inventors. We also find that the nature of these benefits differs by inventor type. For financially-constrained Pro se inventors from the USPTO experiment, patents act as a signal and increase the likelihood of affiliation. For the broader set of independent inventors, however, patents reduce financial, informational, and
