Abstract: Entrepreneurs play a key role in any entrepreneurial and dynamic ecosystem, particularly knowledge economies. They drive change and innovation through starting new ventures, growing businesses, and investing in new ideas. The capacity and capability of entrepreneurs to lead people, become employers and develop their ventures affect future success and sustainability.How entrepreneurial actors learn to lead is then central to developing a strong and adaptable ecosystem able to respond to the challenges presented by unpredictable and complex environments. This chapter presents a case study of how a leadership learning programme has been used in Wales to improve the learning of leaders of SMEs and how this has subsequently impacted on the regional economy as a result.
