Latest Issue Released – Small Enterprise Research Journal – What is different about indigenous entrepreneurship?

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.
