Latest Issue Released – Small Enterprise Research Journal – Why the word Entrepreneurship should be abandoned

Special Issue on Small Business Policy – Small Enterprise Research Journal

 

The latest issue (Vol 24.2) of the Small Enterprise Research journal is now online.

This issue is a general issue and we have published some very interesting research articles. Our first highlight this month is based on the research article from renowned entrepreneurship expert, Prof. Simon Bridge.

Why the word Entrepreneurship should be abandoned

In a challenging review in the latest issue of Small Enterprise Research (24.2), renowned entrepreneurship expert Simon Bridge contends that entrepreneurship is an invented concept and myth. Tracing the history of the phenomenon of entrepreneurship from its early 20th century origins to present day, Bridge posits that there is still no single widely accepted definition of the word entrepreneurship or accepted model of how entrepreneurship operates. Bridge argues that ‘entrepreneurship’ as currently conceived does not exist and the word should be abandoned. This provocative review confronts some of the fundamental premises of ‘entrepreneurship’ and offers thought-provoking insight to how the field might advance.

Special Issue on Small Business Policy – Small Enterprise Research Journal

 

The latest issue (Vol 24.1) of the Small Enterprise Research journal is now online.

Indigenous entrepreneurs create, manage and develop entrepreneurial ventures not just for wealth creation but primarily for the benefit of their communities. Understanding indigenous entrepreneurship is a complex phenomenon, which is impacted by a myriad of factors including history, tradition, culture and language. The latest issue of Small Enterprise Research (24.1), provides a contemporary analysis of the determinants of indigenous entrepreneurship. In one concise volume, it features research on indigenous entrepreneurs from around the globe including Native American entrepreneurs, Canada’s First Nations entrepreneurs, New Zealand’s Māori entrepreneurs, Australia’s Aboriginal entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship in the Irish Traveller Community.

SEAANZ Enterprise Academy launches in Fiji

SEAANZ Enterprise Academy launches in Fiji

SEAANZ Academy was developed by the Small Enterprise Association of Australia and New Zealand as a program to help meet two of its pillars of encouraging enterprise education and practice. The Academy builds on academic research into best practice programs for encouraging nascent and novice entrepreneurs, in particular youth aged from 15 to 35.

Doctoral candidate Eric Clock and his supervisor Winthrop Professor Tim Mazzarol, from the University of Western Australia, developed the program and delivered in Fiji during October 2016. The Enterprise Workshop was run over five days from 11-15 October with assistance from the Graduate School of Business (GSB) at the University of the South Pacific (USP). It was supported by Senior Fellow and Deputy Dean of the GSB Mesake Nawari and staff from the USP.

This workshop was designed to encourage young people who may have not had experience in business to learn how to work with others, use their creativity, build their confidence, and apply their effort to designing and launching an enterprising project.

This five-day program took place at the GSB USP’s Statham Campus in Suva, Fiji. During the course the participants worked in teams to better understand themselves, improved their networking capabilities, created a pop-up business, and validated the business concept in the market.

This practical action orientated workshop takes individuals through the basic steps of starting a team based business. It is designed for people interested in starting a business, or those who want to further enhance their understanding of entrepreneurship.
