Abstract

Household and family members have a strong influence on entrepreneurial behaviours and practices. However, entrepreneurship scholars have largely overlooked the impact of household and family on entrepreneurs' abilities to access resources and pursue opportunities. Thus, this chapter draws on prior geographical research to inform its analysis, as extant studies in human and cultural geography explore the relationship between households and home as spaces of (social) production and consumption.
