‘Rural enterprise and community’

ISBE Rural Enterprise Special Interest Group [SIG] event

Bangor Business School

Wednesday 24th April 2024

According to research, rural communities and social embeddedness are central to what defines a ‘rural entrepreneur’ (Bosworth and Turner, 2018; Korsgaard et al., 2015). With an aim to develop new research ideas and hosted by Bangor Business School and School of Environmental Sciences, we invite SIG members to presentations and discussions relating to what constitutes a rural community and a rural entrepreneur.
