30th Annual SEAANZ Conference
4-6 July 2018, UNE Future Campus Parramatta, Sydney, Australia
Entrepreneurship is acknowledged globally as central to economic development, a position that accounts for the attention it attracts in academia, among governments and policy makers and entrepreneurial practitioners themselves. Creating an environment that supports entrepreneurship requires attention to a number of factors including the legal and regulatory system, financial resources, human capacity development, infrastructure and even social norms. There has been considerable debate as to whether an effective ecosystem should focus on high growth firms or support all small and medium enterprises irrespective of their growth intentions. This conference will focus on the elements of the entrepreneurial ecosystem and the businesses that should be supported in the ecosystem.
