Event: Who makes money from entrepreneurship?

A seminar addressing the important question of “Who Makes Money from Entrepreneurship?” is being held in Liverpool on 12 March 2012 as part of the Global Entrepreneurship Congress. The seminar has been organised to present Professor Sara Carter’s theoretical work on how we might conceptualise and research financial wellbeing in entrepreneurship and to disseminate the findings from an ESRC funded project modelling entrepreneur earnings across the life course, led by Dr Dilani Jayawarna and Dr Julia Rouse.

Knowledge about earnings from entrepreneurship are surprisingly scarce. This seminar will advance knowledge by:

1. Presenting innovative conceptualisation of the financial rewards from entrepreneurship and a considerable research agenda.

(Professor Sara Carter, from a paper originally published in Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice.)

2. Presenting a framework for conceptualising entrepreneur earnings as emergent from individual, household and business life courses and embedded   in wider social processes including class and gender. Also, presenting findings from the operationalisation of this model employing 18 waves of the British Household Panel Survey.

(Dr Dilani Jayawarna and Dr Julia Rouse, from a project supported by the Economic and Social Research Council).

3. Facilitating a discussion regarding international policy implications and research priorities.

(Led by Professor Ossie Jones).
