Abstract

The concept of sharing is a unique social practice that has been redefined and extended under the vast horizon of “sharing economy” by means of influencing the energy of Web 2.0 technology. Besides the passing time since the evolution of this concept there is no one concrete definition yet designed to explain what is concept of sharing economy. The ideology encompasses very varied practices and sectors and covers an extensive spectrum of organizational dimensions, such as from profit making organizations to non-profit making organizations. The sharing economy is an idea that has encompassed its roots through contemporary economics at a massive scale and continues to present digitalization at its forefront. Moreover, the sharing economy has experienced rapid increase and has a persistent impact on society; it is presently supplied with absurdities and rigidities about its limitations, effects, and logic. In addition, few believe that shared based economy as a substitute to market capitalism although in reality it strengthens capitalism. On one side of the coin if the share-based economy encourages „more sustainable intake and manufacturing practices, [it also] urge[s] the contemporary unsustainable economic paradigm.‟ This study addresses the unique problem as a whole – offers a technique to investigate that takes account of the inner range, complexity and contradictions of the sharing economy under the global, institutional and economy level dimensions. In the subsequent, we first shed light on the characteristics of the share-based economy system as a theoretical concept and later on explain the concept with the aid of case study on shared bicycles, which are not yet much explored in academic arena.

The Linkage between Entrepreneurial Capabilities and the Repetitive Entrepreneurial Intention and Action of Surviving Entrepreneurs

Background:

Many scholars focus their research efforts on the entrepreneurial intention of students and nonentrepreneurs, yet most of these scholars found empirical evidence that intention does not necessarily lead these individuals to start businesses (entrepreneurial action). Possible explanations for this could be that: (1) previous studies focused on the wrong samples; (2) they measured entrepreneurial intention as a single construct; and (3) there is a missing link between intention and action.

Keywords:

Entrepreneurial competencies; repetitive entrepreneurial intention behaviours; repetitive entrepreneurial intention attitudes; repetitive entrepreneurial action; survey; Pakistan.

Constructing Entrepreneurial Identity in Entrepreneurship Education

Abstract:

While expanding interest for pioneering ability has prompted steady development in business enterprise instruction, few projects give vigorous results, for example, genuine new pursuits or innovative conduct in genuine settings. This is because of a hole in our hypothetical comprehension of the stuff to end up enterprising. Research recommends that past procuring information and the ability to act innovatively, enterprising adapting likewise includes the improvement of a pioneering character. However most records of business enterprise instruction do exclude this idea. We investigate enterprising personality and how it is built inside a business instruction. Interfacing innovative learning hypothesis with writing on character, we built up a lot of classes tending to the development of a pioneering personality. For a situation learn at a European specialized college, we utilized these classes to test and dissect account information created as understudies made new pursuits. The outcomes bolster our supposition that, with regards to another endeavor creation program, understudies experience moves that lead to the improvement of innovative personality. In light of these discoveries, we contend that on the off chance that the instructive goal is learning for the act of business, at that point personality development should be viewed as significant an objective as the improvement of information and ability.

Examining Entrepreneurial Roles and Identity: Case Study from China and Pakistan

Abstract:

This article examines entrepreneurial identity in both the Pakistan and China to develop a deeper and more holistic understanding of the concept of entrepreneurial identity through the lenses of identity theory and social identity theory. By examining the entrepreneur as both a role and an identity, this article explores how an entrepreneur views the entrepreneur’s role, the entrepreneur’s counter-roles, and the “self-as-entrepreneur” and seeks to understand how entrepreneurs build their identity as an entrepreneur. A more nuanced view of entrepreneurial identity can be explored for entrepreneurs in both the Pakistan and China by looking at the role identity in different social constructs. The study argues that Pakistan entrepreneurs use counter-roles to bridge the gap between their perception of entrepreneur-as-role and self-entrepreneur, while China’s entrepreneurs have less struggle to reconcile the two and use counter-role as a way to paint “calling” entrepreneurship, justifying their abandonment of other identities.
