Conceptualising Learning in Minorities Entrepreneurship
Rae (2020) provides a learning model for entrepreneurship in minority groups, building on prior research in ethnic minority, migrant, indigenous, female, and LGBT+ entrepreneurs. This fills a gap in knowledge of how human and social learning can act as dynamic cultural enablers for minorities entrepreneurship. It positions entrepreneurial learning as a set of dynamic behavioural connectors which minority entrepreneurs use in enacting opportunities to create multiple forms of value for themselves and others, within their cultural and economic contexts. Entrepreneurial learning behaviours form dynamic connections between the micro-cultural resources, sources of capital and opportunity choices available in the context of minorities cultural groups. It can assist in advancing research, policy, educational and support measures to develop entrepreneurial identity, capability and effectiveness.
