‘Do resource constrained entrepreneurs differ?’

Hoffman, Heine 23 March 2010 (has links)
Within the socio-economic sphere, the development and nurturing of small medium micro enterprises will be a feature of any emerging economy into the fore-seeable future. In this context, the interventions by institutions in society have focused on the sector as a whole, with different measures of success. This study sets out to understand the differences, if any, between the characteristics of resource-constrained entrepreneurs. The study is exploratory in nature and it investigates the differences in characteristics using a grounded theory building methodology. It uses the themes developed from this method to formulate the categories of entrepreneurs, where upon recommendations are based for interventions that focus on supporting the entrepreneur in the context of his or her endeavor. / Dissertation (MBA)--University of Pretoria, 2010. / Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS) / unrestricted

O'Brian, Brenda Gail 15 August 2012 (has links)
What began as small taco carts on South Lamar and catering trucks at construction sites in Austin, Texas, local entrepreneurs have recently taken the idea of mobile food and expanded it into a regional phenomenon. This report focuses on the range of trailer owners in the Austin, the challenges owners face in the competitive food landscape and tough economy, regulations, and the process of getting started in the new frontier of food service. Austin boasts one of the largest communities of food trailers – stationary, yet technically mobile – populations in the United States and has influenced a growing culture throughout the country in recent years. / text

Evaluation of employment creation by African immigrant entrepreneurs for unemployed South Africans in Cape Town.

Kalitanyi, Vivence. January 2007 (has links)
<p>There has been a lot of comment and reaction to the presence of immigrants in South Africa, and most of it has been very negative. In light of the negative reaction, one can ask whether immigrants do in fact add any value to the well being of the host countries, given their education, experience and high involvement in small businesses. Several studies have noted that the relatively highr level of education and skills of migrants is at the same level as those of the host populations. This research is aimed at contributing to the debate of the perception that immigrants are taking up jobs that are supposed to belong to South Africans.</p>

Les compétences de l'entrepreneur : définition, démarches d'évaluation et facteurs de développement

Zrig, Yosra 01 June 2011 (has links)
Les TPE françaises représentent un levier sensible et stratégique du dynamisme économique local et national. Elles sont au centre d'une réflexion permanente pour l'ajustement des politiques institutionnelles d'incitation à la création d'entreprise et de soutien aux entrepreneurs. Partant de constats actuels sur la difficile pérennisation des petites entreprises, cette recherche propose un éclairage nouveau de la question centrale des compétences de l'entrepreneur dans le développement et l'accompagnement du secteur entrepreneurial. Cette étude qualitative et longitudinale est issue d'une immersion de cinq ans dans deux projets lorrains : le projet « Club des Dirigeants Lorrains » et le projet « Convergence RH ». La particularité de l?approche est de positionner la problématique de compétence sur un continuum reliant la définition des compétences, les démarches d?évaluation et les facteurs de développement des compétences. Le concept de « compétence » est approché et clarifié par une revue critique de la littérature provenant essentiellement de deux disciplines : Gestion de Ressources Humaines et Entrepreneuriat. C?est dans l?alternance entre phases de collecte, analyse et validation sur le terrain qu'ont été mises au point une démarche collaborative et une étude multi-sites, rassemblant entrepreneurs de TPE, chercheurs, et accompagnateurs. L'approche a produit un cadre de référence commun et d'outils de positionnement associés à un processus interactif d'évaluation formative et de développement de compétences, exploitables par les différents acteurs de projets. La recherche propose aussi de nouvelles orientations théoriques, méthodologiques et managériales sur la problématique des compétences et de l'accompagnement des entrepreneurs. / In France, micro-enterprises are considered as a sensitive and strategic leverage to local and national economic dynamism. They constitute an object of institutional policies that encourage entrepreneurs to create and develop business. Many of the research place competences amongst the key factors that determine the competitiveness of the organisation and that are, as a result, necessary for guaranteeing its long term sustainability or its development. This research aims to offer new insights to the key question of competence on the entrepreneurial development and new venture training. It had carried out a qualitative and longitudinal methodology to investigate, since five years, three dimensions of the concept: definition, evaluation approach and factors of development. The literature review concerned two theoretical fields: Human Resource Management and Entrepreneurship. The empirical investigation had carried out within the framework of two projects in Lorraine: the Lorrain Entrepreneurs' Club project (Club des Dirigeants Lorrains) and the HR Convergence project (Convergence RH). The results obtained relate, therefore to the development of a competences reference and an evaluation tool for use in training, through an interactive process. First, this study proposed a definition of the competences' entrepreneur. Secondly, it established and tested an approach adapted to assess them. Third, it suggested the factors to develop these competences. The thesis provides theoretical, methodological and managerial orientations to precise and clarify the concept of competence in the entrepreneurial research.
