Full recordShow full item record
AbstractEntrepreneurial success is open to wide variance in interpretation, given it is a social construct. Theory regarding what constitutes entrepreneurial success is explored using case studies of the 2003 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award winners in Australia and New Zealand. Findings suggest the need to emphasize what theory presents as key elements of successful entrepreneurship, and importantly, incorporate ethics as a key dimension. Further, the analysis offers insight into how business awards processes in general, might be conducted.
