Fostering inclusive entrepreneurship in South Africa township
February 5, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm UTC+0Free
This week Charlotte Felix-Faure will give a presentation: “Fostering inclusive entrepreneurship in South Africa township” followed by a discussion.
Charlotte will explore how apartheid affects current entrepreneurial behaviour in South African townships using a conceptual framework to analyze the effect of institutions on entrepreneurial behaviour.
Apartheid was founded on segregation of races and ethnic groups, which has produced division and a lack of social trust. Trust is essential to build social networks and therefore social capital. The South African situation is peculiar because though African culture is mainly collectivist, the psychological effects of apartheid has left the Black community unable to forge quality social capital, though the ethnic culture remains collectivist in some aspects.
This event is part of our regular presentation and discussion session for researchers including PhD/master students.
This session is 7pm CET / 6pm UTC / 1pm EST / 12pm CST / 11am MST / 10am PST and will be facilitated by Jacob Spanke.
These sessions are a supportive way to connect with people. You can ask questions, get advice, discuss ideas or issues, get suggestions for literature to read, or you can just listen.
Do you want to present your research? Giving a short presentation to the group can be great practice for confirmation, thesis defense, or rehearsal for conference presentations. It can really help to formulate your ideas, get feedback on your research, and discuss your project.
Presentations can be helpful at various stages of your research program. In the early stages it can be helpful to get feedback from the group to help formulate your research, and later in your research to make sense of the data and practice presenting your final results.
