Fostering inclusive entrepreneurship in South Africa township
February 5, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm UTC+0Free
Certificate of attendance available
This week Charlotte Felix-Faure will give a presentation: \”Fostering inclusive entrepreneurship in South Africa township\” followed by a discussion.
Charlotte will explore how apartheid affects current entrepreneurial behaviour in South African townships using a conceptual framework to analyze the effect of institutions on entrepreneurial behaviour.
Apartheid was founded on segregation of races and ethnic groups, which has produced division and a lack of social trust. Trust is essential to build social networks and therefore social capital. The South African situation is peculiar because though African culture is mainly collectivist, the psychological effects of apartheid has left the Black community unable to forge quality social capital, though the ethnic culture remains collectivist in some aspects.
