What constitutes successful entrepreneurship? An analysis of recent Australasian awards experiences

Kearins, Kate, Luke, Belinda G., & Corner, Trish (2004) What constitutes successful entrepreneurship? An analysis of recent Australasian awards experiences. Journal of the Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management (now The Journal of Management & Organization), 10(2), pp. 41-55.


Entrepreneurial 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.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
