Entrepreneurship for deprived communities: developing opportunities, capabilities and enterprise culture

Nikolai Mouraviev, Alex Avramenko

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This study investigates barriers to developing enterprise in deprived communities, highlights trade-offs local authorities face and offers guidance that contributes to a model for developing a community-centred enterprise culture that is critical for reinvigorating disadvantaged groups and areas.

The monograph focuses on deprived communities where entrepreneurship traditionally was extremely difficult to conceive and offer insights into under-researched issues, such as enablers of entrepreneurship by local government’s integrated approach that blends opportunity generation with capacity and skill building, complemented by support services. They also focus on the formation of an
enterprise culture that should become a foundation of policy, enablers and tools for revitalising deprived communities.

Chapters explore a range of topics, including rethinking the dynamics of micro enterprise, rural entrepreneurship, senior entrepreneurship, entrepreneurship in a cosmopolitan city, civic/community-centred entrepreneurship and lifestyle entrepreneurship.
