Keywords: entrepreneurial marketing; sustainability; development
Modern society is characterized by constant change, and entrepreneurial marketing activities are a prerequisite of successful market activities. Innovation and their market introduction are essential for business success. However, the market can not register the costs of ecosystem degradation. For this reason, the entrepreneurial activities of marketing through innovation and the changes that represent an essential part, is introducing sustainability as one of the imperatives. Economies that are less developed, and lack of business sophistication and innovation, this is the reason they are striving to achieve competitive advantage and business success, without sufficiently paying attention to global problems. The aim of the research is to determine the level of implementation of activities of entrepreneurial marketing and sustainability based on a sample of 433 companies in Serbia. The results showed that the companies mainly regularly conduct entrepreneurial and marketing activities, but funding for these activities are scarce, and about sustainability the companies are not paying much attention. The results did not differ significantly regardless of the size of the company or its main activity. Modern society imposes requirements for the changes that are necessary for business success. Entrepreneurial marketing is a carrier of change in which it is necessary to include sustainability in order to meet the requirements of ecosystems and the future.
