Enterprise Performance and the Value of Entrepreneurs’ Acquired Capitals

Anthony Brown, Timothy Devinney, Mario Kafouros

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


It is well known that entrepreneurs possess human, political and social capital that allow them to be successful. While we know that each of these “capitals” possess value, we know much less about how they interact for example, are they substitutes or complements? and whether where the capital was acquired matters. The latter point is particularly Germaine to the issue of global entrepreneurship and the importance of returnee entrepreneurs for economic development. We provide an overview of this research to date and call for an agenda that concentrates more on the total value a portfolio of these capitals generates and on how that capital is acquired both at home and overseas.
