Entrepreneurship for social inclusion
This research theme aims to improve the understanding of how entrepreneurship policies can lead to socially inclusive growth.
Entrepreneurship has been identified as a mechanism to alleviate poverty, particularly in ‘Base of the Pyramid’ (BOP) regions, where impoverished socio-economic groups have suffered from social exclusion, ‘the denial of equal access to opportunities imposed by certain groups of society’. This research theme aims to improve the understanding of how entrepreneurship policies can lead to socially inclusive growth at the BOP.
