Entrepreneurship 101

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=95887131&cjsku=95887131...
Entrepreneurship 101 aims to educate South Africans about the fundamentals of entrepreneurship while looking at a uniquely South African business environment. This book will help aspirant entrepreneurs understand the very basics of running a business in South Africa. It will discuss what entrepreneurship is all about and guide the reader on the journey of starting a business. It will take them from a business idea, on a step-by-step process to synching the deal with their first client. It will address, among others: how to raise start-up capital, identify the bottlenecks that many entrepreneurs face in our country as well as explaining our unique labour laws. South Africa is beset with a number of unique socio-political factors, i.e. the crisis of high unemployment, which often leads to poverty, and ultimately inequality and to high rates of crime. The National Development Plan (NDP) – our national policy until 2030, the private sector and government all agree that entrepreneurship is the only reasonable catalyst to solve the problem. The challenge, however, is that those who are most affected by the scourge of unemployment do not have a firm grasp of what ‘entrepreneurship' is. Joshula Maluleke has included a section on frequently asked questions at the back of the book in an attempt to provide in-depth answers to some of the questions he gets asked at his entrepreneurship talks. Questions like: Can I register my spaza shop? I have registered a business with CIPC and government has not given me an opportunity to do business, what must I do?

Societal Entrepreneurship

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=1094159&cjsku=1094159...
Most social ventures cross the boundaries between the private, the public and the non-profit/voluntary sectors, and this broad involvement of actors and intertwining of sectors makes the label 'societal' entrepreneurship more appropriate. Stating the importance of both the local and the broader societal context, the book reports close-up studies from a variety of social ventures. Generic themes include positioning societal entrepreneurship against other images of collective entrepreneurship, critically penetrating its assumptions and practices and proposing ways of promoting societal entrepreneurship more widely.

Art Entrepreneurship

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=681144&cjsku=681144...
This pioneering book explores the connections between art and artistic processes and entrepreneurship. The authors expertly identify several areas and issues where research on art and artistic processes can inform and develop the traditional field of entrepreneurship research. Nine original chapters by an international group of scholars take a detailed look at the sources of new art ideas, how they are transformed into tangible objects of art, make their way through often hostile selection environments, and ultimately go on to become valued and accepted by the general public. Making a number of original contributions at the crossroads of art and entrepreneurship, the book speaks to researchers across these fields, practicing artists interested in promoting and gaining acceptance for their work, as well as policymakers concerned with sustained dynamics of the art arena. Entrepreneurship researchers interested in new developments in the field will find this unique book invigorating. It also serves as an invaluable source of inspiration for academics and practitioners interested in social and cultural entrepreneurship.

Technological Entrepreneurship

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=95698449&cjsku=95698449...
This comprehensive book responds to the growing demand to study entrepreneurship as a key driver of innovation and competitive advantage. Challenging the existing idea that technological entrepreneurship exists predominantly in SMEs and as a result of market demands, the author argues that a commitment to entrepreneurship remains the most effective strategy for sustaining wealth generation for both organisations and entire nations. The aim of Technological Entrepreneurship is to provide the reader with additional knowledge and understanding of the concepts associated with the exploitation of technological entrepreneurship, and to demonstrate how associated management principles are somewhat different to those utilised in market-driven entrepreneurship. Validation of presented theoretical concepts is achieved through coverage of processes and practices utilised by real world organisations seeking to achieve maximum wealth generation, with specific emphasis on how technological entrepreneurship is the source of disruptive innovation within service sector organisations and how the philosophy is causing fundamental change in the provision of healthcare.
