Abstract [en]

Increased awareness about the climate emergency, social and environmental inequalities, and ecological degradation influence the adoption of sustainability by business groups worldwide, including business groups owned by family. The owning families of business groups develop awareness and strategies to pursue ecological, social, and ethical opportunities. Research at the interface of family, business groups, and corporate sustainability is important to advance our understanding of the owning family’s influence on the sustainability approaches of the business group. Thus, in this chapter, we develop a conceptual framework that examines the commitment, control, and continuity of the owning family to its business group’s global corporate sustainability. We merge literature on family business, corporate sustainability, and sustainability science and develop a sustainability embeddedness perspective. Our proposed conceptual model on sustainability embeddedness offers insights to better understand diverse degrees and forms of involvement of the owning family leading to a variety of sustainability strategies, processes, and practices.

Abstract [en]

This chapter has three purposes: First, to briefly outline corporate venturing as a sub-field in corporate entrepreneurship that recently has gained prominence in research on family-owned businesses (FOB); second, to highlight the missing social dimension in research on FOB that focuses on corporate venturing, conceptualize this added social dimension as corporate social venturing (CSV), and to empirically illustrate CSV with well-known Mexican FOB engaged in CSV; and third, to propose an agenda for researching CSV done by FOB.

Abstract [en]

This chapter delineates how entrepreneurial families can build engagement through entrepreneurship by developing or investing in new sustainable ventures. Sustainable ventures strive for the dignity and long-term survival of our planet. They are out most important since human activities affect the life and balance of social-ecological systems on our planet. We thereby propose that engagement is essential for capturing the opportunities for sustainable venturing that emerge in interactions and connections between individuals, family, business and the earth's biosphere. Such engagement facilitates the development of a business purpose that includes and goes beyond financial profits. We connect insights from the family entrepreneurship literature with those from the sustainability literature and suggest three sustainable venturing processes that can help develop engagement with entrepreneurship in the business family. We call these processes igniting family entrepreneurship through sustainability; interplaying between family entrepreneurship and a purpose for sustainability; and interfacing between family entrepreneurship and sustainability. Through these processes, we argue that sustainability provides an opportunity of involving different generations and branches of a family to build commitment around a purpose, and shared values and principles in new sustainable ventures that stretch beyond the traditional financial goals of the business.

Abstract [en]

This paper examines the roles of family in migrant entrepreneurs’ opportunity development. We employ the opportunity development and family embeddedness for theory building purposes. We conducted a longitudinal inductive case study on four cases of migrant entrepreneurs who have established businesses in Sweden and who have their origins in Lebanon and Syria, Cameroon, and Mexico, documented with 29 interviews and field observations. The paper identifies families embedding occurring by means of three norms of reciprocity and obligations that facilitate the opportunity development process. These norms are fulfilling the expectations of family and the existing family business, regularly interacting with family and the existing family business, and deploying family and business loyalty. These norms are connected to specific sub-processes of opportunity development, namely, the generation of an entrepreneurial idea, shaping an entrepreneurial idea, and defining the (new) family venture offering. By identifying these norms in the opportunity development processes, we theorize that migrant entrepreneurs rely on different family members and the existing family business from the home or host country at different moments of the opportunity development process. Such dynamic creates different norms of reciprocity and obligations for migrant entrepreneurs and their families, which influence the opportunity development.

Abstract [en]

Drawing on an Entrepreneurship as Practice (EaP) approach, this article examines how next generation members in family owned businesses (FOBs) engage in external venturing. Our study builds on longitudinal qualitative research in two Mexican FOBs where the next generation launched ten ventures. It reveals five different practices of external venturing used by next generation family members: ‘obtaining family approval', ‘bypassing family', ‘family venture mimicking', ‘jockeying in family', and ‘jockeying around family.' The five practices are combined into three routes for external venturing: ‘imitating the family business', ‘splitting the family business', and ‘surpassing the family business.' Building on notions from de Certeau's practice theory (1988/1984), we present the five practices as ways of operating and the routes as modes of sensing to better understand how next generation family members deal with settings featured by dominant orders within the family and the FOB in their attempts to originate and launch their new ventures.

Book Description: 

This book provides insights into how new ventures in emerging economies and developing countries generate social innovation. It showcases new forms of business and how they are different from traditional business models. With increasing drive for innovation in emerging markets and lack of knowledge of how these markets work, this book enriches existing literature by looking at how such businesses in developing economies break new ground in a daunting, resource constrained environment. The book examines successful individual entrepreneurs, social relationships, product innovation, processes, systems and markets through cases. It navigates across key theoretical elements including individual initiative-taking, agency, and opportunity contexts.

This book will be a useful reference to understanding the dynamics of new ventures in emerging markets and how they fuel social innovation and sustainable development.
