Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

In what ways are entrepreneurial internships perceived as providing the required social capital, networks and experience, for youth entrepreneurs who (intend to) transition from student to business start-ups? A closer look into ways of addressing the stipulated question, has become crucial because over the years, since the global community had become increasingly dependent on entrepreneurship activities and their rudiments (such as policies, programmes and projects) as a way towards attaining to socio-economic planning and development (Hall et al, 2010) especially in the areas of providing employment for the youth population. Entrepreneurship is (almost) unanimously regarded by scholars, business cycles, policy makers and development agencies as both social and economic (Anderson et al, 2007; Casson & Giusta, 2007); because it has become very crucial to resolving economic and social challenges emerging around the globe; including (but not limited to) youth unemployment.
