Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Embeddedness in a context provides entrepreneurs with opportunities and set boundaries to their actions. However, little is known about how and why multiple contexts and their associated logics of practice affect entrepreneurs. We address this research gap by exploring the lived experiences of 10 cultural entrepreneurs based in rural communities.
