Stakeholders’ perceptions of sustainable entrepreneurship within the context of a developing economy

Stakeholders’ perceptions of sustainable entrepreneurship within the context of a developing economy
Stakeholders’ perceptions of sustainable entrepreneurship within the context of a developing economy
This study advances the understanding of sustainable entrepreneurship (SE) by investigating stakeholders’ perceptions of SE’s dimensions in a developing economy. Sixty-three semi-structured interviews with local government officers and entrepreneurs in family business settings were conducted on three islands within the Vietnamese Marine Protected Areas cluster. The study fills both theoretical and empirical gaps concerning the emergence of SE in a developing economy. It empirically examines cultural sustainability and the interconnection between four sustainability pillars (environment, economy, society and culture), thus contributing to a more holistic concept of SE in the tourism sector. Furthermore, it reveals that stakeholders’ perceptions of SE are affected by levels of tourism development. The findings suggest important implications for family-owned businesses and policy makers.

Abstract

This study advances the understanding of sustainable entrepreneurship (SE) by investigating stakeholders’ perceptions of SE’s dimensions in a developing economy. Sixty-three semi-structured interviews with local government officers and entrepreneurs in family business settings were conducted on three islands within the Vietnamese Marine Protected Areas cluster. The study fills both theoretical and empirical gaps concerning the emergence of SE in a developing economy. It empirically examines cultural sustainability and the interconnection between four sustainability pillars (environment, economy, society and culture), thus contributing to a more holistic concept of SE in the tourism sector. Furthermore, it reveals that stakeholders’ perceptions of SE are affected by levels of tourism development. The findings suggest important implications for family-owned businesses and policy makers.
