    Empowerment through Entrepreneurship: A tool for integration among immigrant women?2009Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The study investigates whether entrepreneurship among immigrant women in Sweden may be a way to achieve integration in working life and thereby increase their empowerment. Sixteen female entrepreneurs were interviewed. They started their businesses for a number of reasons: unemployment, lack of suitable jobs and career possibilities, discrimination and forced privatization, desire for personal development, independence and freedom, or work within one’s own field of interest. We conclude that entrepreneurship can be a tool for increasing empowerment among educated immigrant women.

    Isaberg on the edge to future by controlling the lack of snow2009In: Presented at The international Symposium on Entrepreneurship in Tourism, Rovaniemi, Finland, March 17-21, 2009., 2009Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is a descriptive examination and assessment of a ski resort in southern Sweden – Isaberg. The paper describes an emerging threat most ski resorts are faced with today and in the future – the lack of snow. In many countries financial institutions are much less willing to offer funding for investments in ski resorts under certain heights. This is the result of two trends:  the cut off point for the height of the ski resorts is increasing every year, and at the same time some resorts have fewer skiers.  The likelihood of snow and the ability to offer snow-related products are critical to the success of all ski resorts.  Isaberg, which is significantly below any proposed height cut off points, has strong traditions, a promising market with skiers coming from the domestic Swedish market, as well as Norway, Denmark, Germany and Holland, and very modern facilities – but in recent years the resort has been suffering because of the lack of snow. Isaberg is therefore considering building an inside skiing facility to attract customers and support other local products. Our paper examines the potential of this facility and offers practical and theoretical implications for ski resort management.

    Att överbrygga mellan traditionell industri och upplevelseindustri2010In: Entreprenörskap i regioners tjänst: Ingångar till nya näringar genom design, upplevelser, kulturarv / [ed] Johannisson Bengt & Rylander David, Jönköping: EIDI , 2010, p. 111-130Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Nya näringar utvecklas alltid i ett sammanhang som skapats av befintligt närings- och samhällsliv. I detta kapitel fokuserar vi på hinder och möjligheter inför en omvandling av näringslivet i Gnosjöregionen. Regionen karakteriseras mer än de flesta andra i Sverige av en småskalig tillverkningsindustri. Sysselsättningsgraden totalt sett är en av de högsta i landet, såväl bland män och kvinnor som nya svenskar, invandrarna. I takt med utflyttning av verksamhet och automatisering av tillverkningsprocesser minskar behovet av arbetskraft inom traditionell industri vilket ökar kravet på att utveckla nya kompletterande näringar. Omvandling från tillverkningsintensiv produktion till serviceinriktad upplevelseindustri med turism är för många regioner en viktig utmaning. Upplevelseindustrin förväntas bidra till tillväxt och en mer mångsidig arbetsmarknadsstruktur, särskilt attraktiv för unga människor. Omvandlingen mot en mer diversifierad näringsstruktur försvåras av den kulturella fixeringen vid den tidigare så framgångsrika tillverkningsindustrin. Många anonyma ”röster” menar att jobb och företag inom turism och annan upplevelse-industri inte räknas som ”riktiga” jobb och företag. En omorientering av regionens näringsliv måste drivas inifrån/underifrån för att bli beständig, något som tidigare förändringsförsök vittnar om. Samtidigt behövs inspiration utifrån. Kapitlet avslutas med en exemplifiering av Isaberg, som en väletablerad anläggning för friluftsliv, ett etablisse-mang inom upplevelseindustri, som vill vända snöbrist till en möjlighet att överbrygga säsongsvariationer. Ambitionerna för utvecklingen av Isaberg visar potentialen inom turism och annan upplevelseindustri i strävan efter en alternativ näringslivsstruktur.

    Regional samverkan inom turism: Exempel från Gnosjöregionen2008Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med rapporten är att studera förutsättningar för regional samverkan inom turism mellan kommunerna Gislaved, Gnosjö, Vaggeryd och Värnamo och komma med förslag på åtgärder som kan främja en konkurrenskraftig destinationsutveckling. Rapporten grundar sig på en analys av ett antal teoretiska utgångspunkter liksom praktiska exempel som stöd för att förstå de resultat som fångats upp. Ett antal intervjuer med kommunala tjänstemän och företrädare för näringen visar att det finns flera frön för framtida samverkan i regionen. Det gemensamma arbetet innebär deltagande i mässor, gemensam marknadsföring, gemensamma kartor med ett direkt värde för turister och med en lägre kostnad för entreprenörer och kommun. Kartläggningen av kommunala och regionala förutsättningar visar att en rad attraktioner har potential för attraktionskraft och vidare utveckling.

    I intervjuer och samtal har vi kunnat urskilja vissa kommunikationsproblem mellan kommunerna. Information når inte alltid fram. Det efterlyses större applicering av gemensamma databaser, som skapar ökad genomskinlighet och jämförbarhet mellan kommuner. Effektivare användning av teknik tillsammans med kompetensutveckling kan förbättra kommunikationen mellan aktörerna i regionen.

    Vi föreslår att funktionen av nätverket kan förbättras genom fördjupad samverkan kring mässor, marknadsföring, en gemensam portal, mellan företag genom fler forum för samverkan såsom träffpunkt Store Mosse.

    Vidare föreslås att gemensam identitet kring samverkan kan fördjupas. En väg är att GGVV och Gnosjöregionen ersätts med ett nytt namn som syftar framåt för fördjupad samverkan. Vi tror att kommunerna kan förlora på att helt överge varumärket `Gnosjöregionen´, som utstrålar starka industritraditioner men samtidigt vinna mycket på att gå framåt med ett namn som vinner större uppslutning.

    Attityder till upplevelseindustri: Vad säger lokala politiker ochföretagsledare i tillverkningsindustrin?2009Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Genomgång av intervjumaterialet visar att det finns skillnader mellan politikers och företagsledares attityder. Den första gruppen har generellt sett en positiv attityd till upplevelseindustrin och särskilt till turism och design. Företagsledarna däremot har en mer avvaktande attityd när det gäller dessa näringars roll i regionens framtida utveckling. Politikerna i undersökningen har mer kunskap om upplevelseindustrin än de intervjuade företagsledarna. Båda grupperna betonar dock en ökad betydelse för design i regionens näringsliv. Här finns viss kunskap om att både estetisk och funktionell design är nödvändig för en slutprodukts attraktivitet.

    Nyfikenhet och intresse för att driva sitt företag med inslag av upplevelsenäring finns hos en tredjedel av de tillfrågade företagsledarna. Detta andas möjligheter för korsbefruktningar mellan tillverkningsindustri och upplevelseindustri i framtiden.

    Utmaningen är att via mötesplatser mellan näringarna skapa en miljö som främjar utveckling av nya kombinationer av idéer, vilket kan resultera i kunderbjudanden som genererar nya företag och arbetstillfällen.

    För att utveckla upplevelseindustrin i regionen behövs skräddarsydd kompetensutveckling tillsammans med regional samverkan mellan tillverkningsindustrin, tjänstesektorn, entreprenörer inom områdena kultur, turism och design samt lokala myndigheter.

    De företagsledare inom tillverkningsindustrin som idag är nyfikna på upplevelsenäring skulle kunna dela med sig av kunskaper och erfarenheter och med en öppen attityd finna samarbeten med entreprenörer inom områdena kultur, turism och design.

    Framgångsrika entreprenörer inom upplevelseindustrin som Isaberg och High Chaparral kan fungera som förebilder.

    Politiskt finns mycket att vinna med att GGVV-kommunerna tillsammans arbetar fram en gemensam vision och strategi för upplevelseindustrins utveckling i regionen. I denna kan upplevelseindustrins infrastruktur i form av motorer, mötesplatser, leverantörsnätverk, paketkombinationer, kompetensutvecklingscentra och samarbetsorganisationer tydliggöras. Detta skulle kunna bli den karta aktörerna behöver för att identifiera och skapa synergier.

    Samarbeten med större branschorganisationer som Smålands Turism och Stiftelsen Svensk Industridesign liksom med Högskolan i Jönköping och Linnéuniversitetet kan främja en gemensam kraftsamling i Småland. Samarbetet inom Entreprenörsregionen är ännu av liten betydelse men potentialen inför framtiden ska inte underskattas.

    Abstract [en]

    Despite extensive attempts to enhance women's entrepreneurship in Germany, a gender gap continues to exist. This article sets out to analyse the representation of women's entrepreneurship in German media, by analysing how it is depicted in newspapers and how this changes over time. Images transported in media might regulate the nature of women's entrepreneurship, as they contain information about ‘typical’ and ‘socially desirable’ behaviour of women as well as of entrepreneurs. This article contributes to developing an understanding of the relevance of media representation of the entrepreneurship phenomenon for influencing the propensity towards entrepreneurial activity.

    BARRIERS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF ELECTRONIC COMMERCE: A STUDY OF PAKISTANI ENVIORNMENT2009Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    E-commerce has flourished in the developed world and is playing an important role in the everyday lives of the people and national economies. The developing nations are far behind in this regard even though their governments have made considerable efforts to encourage e-commerce. This thesis is a study of the environmental factors that act as barriers to the development of e-commerce in Pakistan. It shows the nature and the level of hindrance these environmental factors have caused and there relation to one another. In order to make a national analysis, environmental factors have been stretched to include the government, businesses, consumers, physical infrastructures, social and cultural factors. A qualitative study was conducted via telephonic and written interviews from academic and professional experts, users and non users of e-commerce in Pakistan. The analysis of these interviews revealed that not all of the factors considered as e-commerce barriers for developing nations were present in Pakistan. The relation between different e-commerce barriers was studied and further, additional barriers were also identified. Low literacy rate, traditional economic sector, failure of government to successfully implement e-commerce initiatives and regulations, shortage of electrical supply and low demand for online businesses and the consumer purchasing behaviour of Pakistanis were identified as the main e-commerce barriers.

    Abstract [en]

    The present lack of instruments for measuring entrepreneurial opportunity is hampering progress in entrepreneurship research and fundamental hypotheses about opportunity variance are not being tested. This paper sets out to validate a measure of market newness in new ventures based in Austrian Economics, assuming a view of opportunity as objective and discoverable. Empirically, a sample of 250 new internal ventures in gestation was examined regarding to whom these ventures presented something new in terms of geographical extension or new customer groups. The measure improves on existing instruments by providing more intrinsic range while being firmly anchored in an Austrian Economics framework.

    Gender, Context and Entrepreneurial Learning2010In: International Journal of Gender and Entrepreneurship, ISSN 1756-6266, Vol. 2, no 2, p. 108-129Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of the paper is to offer an insight into gender, context and entrepreneurial learning of women entrepreneurs in Germany.

    Design/methodology/approach – The paper explores entrepreneurial learning of women entrepreneurs both conceptually and empirically. Section 1 introduces a conceptual framework, which allows analysing entrepreneurial learning both from an individual gender-specific and from a context-based perspective. Empirically, the paper explores how women entrepreneurs acquire the (business-related) knowledge to start and grow an enterprise and the impact of regional, sector, family and social as well as macro environments in this regard. Findings are based on 31 in-depths interviews with women entrepreneurs and 23 interviews with key experts.

    Findings – It is found that the meso environment is more of an indirect influence; the macro and micro environments are strong influences on lives and decisions of women entrepreneurs, especially on their opportunity recognition. The business environment has both a direct and indirect influence.

    Practical implications – The results demonstrate an ongoing need for a contemporary image of women's entrepreneurship in Germany. The major challenge for policy-makers and support organizations therefore lies in propagating diverse entrepreneurial images and in incorporating the diversity of women's entrepreneurship and their specific learning approaches into policies and support offers.

    Originality/value – The paper contributes a different and so far neglected perspective on entrepreneurial learning and opportunity recognition, drawing attention to the contextual influences and the embedding of cognitive processes.

    How female entrepreneurs learn and acquire (business relevant) knowledge2010In: International Journal of Entrepreneurship and Small Business, ISSN 1476-1297, E-ISSN 1741-8054, Vol. 10, no 1, p. 65-82Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There is still a gender gap in entrepreneurship, with only 30% of all business founders being women. One important question in this regard concerns how female entrepreneurs learn and acquire business-relevant knowledge. Individual learning processes are affected by individual sense making and cognitions, implying that amongst the other factors at the individual and environmental levels, gender is a factor influencing entrepreneurial learning. However, a gender perspective has been neglected in recent research on entrepreneurial learning and opportunity recognition. The paper concentrates on conceptually and empirically introducing this gender perspective. We explore the main influences on the entrepreneurial learning of female entrepreneurs and the determinants and triggers that impact female learning. Regarding the implications for entrepreneurship research, we hope to contribute to the understanding of what constitutes the specificities of female entrepreneurship in the frame of entrepreneurial learning and opportunity recognition.

    The Composition of New Venture Teams: Its Dynamics and Consequences2009Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    New venture team composition lies at the heart of this thesis. Drawing on social-psychological explanations and human capital reasoning, the thesis addresses the social as well as the instrumental foci facing new venture teams. This is done by addressing four research questions: 1) What are the characteristics of new venture teams and their team members? 2) What impact does team composition and firm performance have on team dynamics? 3) What impact does team member characteristics and individual deviation have on individual dynamics? 4) How does team composition and team dynamics influence firm performance? Dynamics is studied by investigating the adding and dropping of team members.

    Research on entrepreneurial teams is characterized by several methodological challenges that this thesis takes on. First, there is a lack of longitudinal studies. Second, no studies are based on truly random samples of teams. Third, the unit and level of analysis has been the team and the firm. Rarely is the individual considered. In addition, the thesis sheds light on team diversity and its effects as well as the relationship with performance, both as an antecedent and as a consequence.

    The empirical setting is based on a unique database covering all individuals entering into self-employment in knowledge-intensive industries in Sweden during the 1996 to 2000 period. Their firms are tracked annually up to 2002, providing a census panel three to seven years long consisting of five cohorts. This is done by using secondary data from Statistics Sweden (SCB) covering information on individuals as well as their firms. By combining individual and firm level data, the thesis demonstrates how team level constructs can be obtained.

    Overall, the hypothesized relations predicting team member and individual exits receive strong support. Entries to teams and the performance of the firms are not as well explained by the chosen constructs. The findings show that greater internal diversity along some but not all demographic dimensions is positively associated with a higher rate of team member exits. More precisely,when diversity can be linked to status differences, the impact is more pronounced. Furthermore, the findings show that deviation from others in the group has an impact on which individual is likely to leave the team. There are also considerable differences in behavior between teams consisting of spousal pairs and other teams. In fact, the findings show that spousal couples venturing together are very common and that the typical team does not match the entrepreneurial team as it often is portrayed in the literature. In sum, the study suggests that diversity in attributes related to status can influence team stability. In addition, trust and prior relationships appear to be especially important for the creation and development of new venture teams.

    Design i Småland2010In: Gnosjöandan i ny riktning: design, upplevelser, kulturarv / [ed] Rylander D & Abbasian S, Jönköping: EIDI , 2010, p. 57-80Chapter in book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Kapitlet behandlar designbegreppet ur flera perspektiv. Inledningsvis diskuteras och betonas betydelsen av att olika aktörer reflekterar över och förhåller sig till design. Industridesign beskrivs därefter som resurs och omistlig process i skapande och uttryck av enskilda produkters identitet. I Småland pågår ett stort antal verksamheter relaterade till design. Flera större insatser sker, som t.ex. projektet ”Designregion Småland”, samarbetet inom ”Möbelriket”, det sedan länge etablerade ”Glasriket” samt nytillskottet Design- och konstcentrum ”Vandalorum”. Samtidigt genomförs ett flertal komplet-terande, men inte mindre viktiga, aktiviteter i syfte att bl.a. öka besöksnäringens koppling till design i Gnosjöregionen och Småland (se de initiativ som tagits i t.ex. Värnamo kommun kring ”Designers Saturday”). Ytterligare ett exempel på en aktivitet som kontinuerligt bidrar till att belysa betydelsen av design, och som samtidigt förankrar begreppet i Småland är de utbildningar som sker, i de flesta fall i nära samverkan med näringslivet. Design har således redan en nära koppling till Småland, dess innevånare och näringsliv, men det är viktigt att utveckla och förvalta ett förhållningssätt till begreppet i området för att vi skall kunna dra nytta av rent ekonomiska, såväl som en rad ”mjuka” fördelar som är förknippade med design.

    Grief or Relief: Emotional responses to firm failure2010In: Frontiers of entrepreneurship research 2010: proceedings of the thirtieth annual entrepreneurship research conference / [ed] Zacharakis et.al., 2010, p. -15Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper provides a first systematic assessment of how entrepreneurs react to firm failure. As hypothesized, we find that these reactions are complex and multifaceted, involving grief as well as relief. We use appraisal theory as an overarching theoretical framework. To test the hypotheses we develop a unique, hand collected, database of entrepreneurs who recently filed for firm bankruptcy. 310 telephone interviews were conducted (response rate 65%) directly followed by a mail questionnaire. After a three-wave mailing (i.e. two reminders) 147 valid mail questionnaires were returned (response rate 31.2%). This paper constitutes an important step in advancing empirically valid theory of emotional responses to entrepreneurial failure.

    Abstract [sv]

    I detta avslutande kapitel reflekterar vi redaktörer över den samlade erfarenhet som de olika projekten i de fyra regionerna bjuder på. Eftersom de vunna insikterna är en produkt av en dialog mellan forskares tankar och utvecklares och andra praktikers ofta djupa engagemang i utvecklingsprocesser serverar vi våra lärdomar i en gemensam meny för forskare och praktiker. Vi inleder med att ta upp de åtta frågor som vi presenterat i inledningskapitlet. Därnäst inventeras vilka svar som antologins olika kapitel levererat. I kapitlets senare hälft gör vi ett annat snitt genom boken vars olika bidrag kommenteras ur fyra aspekter som under bokprojektets gång alltmer pockat på uppmärksamhet. En första aspekt avser roll- och ansvars-fördelningen mellan forskare och praktiker. En andra aspekt är rådande omvärldsvillkor, idag i sanning globala, som anger ramarna för varje lokalt och regionalt initiativ. Som en tredje aspekt diskuteras det handlingsutrymme som ändå kan och behöver skapas för att driva lokal och regional utveckling. Den fjärde aspekten tar fasta på den friktionsenergi som ryms i själva utmaningen, d.v.s. att finna vägar till en omvandling av det regionala näringslivet och samhället, en kraft som kan användas för ’invärtes’ bruk. I det avslutande avsnittet kommenterar vi den repertoar av organiseringsformer för utveckling in i en ny ekonomi som antologins olika kapitel erbjuder.

    Entreprenörskap i regioners tjänst: Ingångar till nya näringar genom design, upplevelser, kulturarv2010Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Regioner kan ses både som mål och som medel i den omvandling som fört den traditionella industriella ekonomin in i en ny era präglad av verksamheter som använder kreativitet och annat kunskapskapital för att producera upplevelser. Mål eftersom regionerna utanför storstadsområdena svarat för en stor del av den svenska tillverkningsindustrin och följaktligen avkrävs förnyelse. Medel därför att dessa regioner besitter en stor potential att aktivera i form av nya framväxande näringar med avstamp i design, upplevelser och kulturarv.

    Denna antologi har som syfte att reflektera kring och konkret belysa på vilka sätt lokalt/regionalt främjande av entreprenörskap i kreativa näringar kan stimulera såväl den egna som den nationella utvecklingen och dessutom lägga grunden för en ’glokal’ utvecklingsstrategi där en bro slås mellan det lokala och det globala.

    Boken vänder sig till alla som har intresse för dialog mellan praktik och forskning till nytta för regional utveckling: beslutsfattare, utvecklare, samhälls-entreprenörer och entreprenörer i näringslivet liksom till högskolans forskare, lärare och studenter. Vi vill nå denna breda läsekrets dels genom att ur olika perspektiv belysa den initiativkraft som de kreativa och upplevelse-inriktade näringarna förmedlar, dels genom att praktisera interaktiva metoder, alltså arbetssätt som ser kunskap som en produkt inte bara av dialog forskare emellan utan också mellan forskare och praktiker.

    Bokens författare är 14 forskare och sex praktiker. Forskarna representerar olika discipliner: etnografi, företagsekonomi, kulturgeografi, idéhistoria, industriell organisation och statsvetenskap. De medverkande praktikerna arbetar som utvecklare och kommer från fyra regioner med olika särdrag: Jämtland, Halland, Gotland och Gnosjöregionen. Dessutom representerar de vitt skilda erfarenheter utifrån olika utvecklarroller med inriktning på industri, företag, samhälle, design och turism.

    Forskarna och utvecklarna delar ett starkt intresse för att ge läsarna inblick i de kreativa och upplevelseinriktade näringarnas framväxt och nutida betydelse. De vill inte minst förmedla insikter i hur kreativa och entreprenöriella processer kan kopplas till lärande och utveckling.

    Boken rapporterar från ett brett samverkansprojekt som initierats av KK-stiftelsen och Arbetslivsinstitutet tillsammans med fem kommuner, två länsstyr-elser, ett landsting, två regionförbund och fyra högskolor. Projektets ambition har varit att skapa bättre förutsättningar för framväxten av nya jobb och företag genom kunskaps- och kompetensutveckling inom kreativa näringar. Så kan befintliga företag utvecklas och så kan nya entreprenörer stimuleras att gå till handling genom att knyta högskolorna närmare de företag och organisationer som finns i respektive region.

    De fyra nämnda regionerna - Gnosjöregionen, Gotland, Halland och Jämtland – som samarbetar i ett FoU-nätverk är både lika och olika ifråga om storlek, geografisk lokalisering, näringsstrukturella traditioner, utmaningar de står inför respektive vilka ambitioner de uttryckt och strategier de format för att hantera sina utmaningar. Forsknings- och utvecklingsaktiviteter med sikte på nyskapande design, engagerande upplevelser och identitetsstärkande kulturarv bidrar till inspiration och lärprocesser som växlas upp av förstärkta länkar mellan samhälle-högskola-näring-kultur.
