Entrepreneurial Spaces: More than Just a Physical Space!

Activity: Talk or presentation typesOral presentation


In this paper, we draw attention to the space in which entrepreneurial learning happens, where we view this space being ‘much more than the container of things' (Cooper, 2005: 1693). ‘It is 'not [a] setting (real or logical) in which things are arranged, but the means by which the positing of things becomes possible'’ (adapted from Merleau-Ponty, 1962: 243 by Handley et al. 2006, p. 6&7). We see space in this paper to involve the educator, the learner and the space in which interaction happens (be it physical or symbolic), where all three contribute to the emergence of a dialogue and the enactment of meaning.
