Research on entrepreneurship is mainly focused on the individual, and research on innovation has been mainly focused on institutions even though we know that both agency and context matter. To better integrate the two approaches, Acs et al. (Research Policy 43:476–494, 2014. doi: 10.1016/j.respol.2013.08.016 ) introduced the national systems of entrepreneurship (NSE) as a framework for a resource allocation system driven by individual-level opportunity pursuit through the creation of new ventures and its outcomes regulated by country-specific institutional characteristics. This paper draws on the NSE framework, sets it in a larger context, examines the logic of the approach and introduces the special issue by summarizing the papers.
