Calling Necessity Entrepreneurs

Calling Necessity Entrepreneurs

The Asian Wall Street Journal is looking to interview some "necessity entrepreneurs" for a story they are doing. These are people who are "forced" into starting a business by job loss or redundancy. New Zealand has about 2.5% of the population who are "necessity entrepreners". We will report on the results of this story in the next newsletter.

Could you please let me know by Monday Feburary 17 at noon whom you might recommend for this interview?

Best regards,

Howard Frederick Dr. Howard H. Frederick, Professor of Innovation & Entrepreneurship Director, New Zealand Centre for Innovation & Entrepreneurship Director, Bartercard New Zealand Global Entrepreneurship Monitor 2002
