Title

Sustainable entrepreneurship along green corridor


Abstract

The research in this paper highlights the interaction and development of sustainable entrepreneurship activities in the environment of Green Transport Corridors. The objective is to show how the concept of Green Transport Corridors, initiated by the European Commission, comprises the framework for an entrepreneurial ecosystem bearing the potential to deploy sustainable entrepreneurship activities to the benefit of new start-ups as well as already existing small and medium sized companies (SMEs). The methods used are to analyse the existing green corridor initiatives together with their economic growth strategies and their impact on the surrounding entrepreneurial ecosystems. The results will be discussed in the context of network and cluster theories and evaluated by previously made studies and cases from SME sector in regard to logistics and networking. Additionally, with focus group meetings core requirements for green corridors together with a set of key performance indicators (KPI) are elaborated. The results are that Green Transport Corridors set the frame for sustainable development and foster a coherent entrepreneurial ecosystem especially for start-ups and existing SMEs in the logistics sector.
