Indigeneity an Asset Never a Barrier to Indigenous Business Success

Aboriginal Futures, Joseph Quesnel, Research Papers

Without a doubt, Indigenous entrepreneurs and business leaders in all the four Anglosphere countries looked at in this study all face challenges and obstacles.
To begin with, they come from the most marginalized and disadvantaged populations in their respective nation-states. Unfortunately, they have the highest rates of poverty, exposure and involvement in criminality, addiction, and domestic violence than other demographics. But, if anything, this study shows that Indigenous entrepreneurs and/or business leaders are rising above these obstacles and finding purpose and meaning in their life to overcome all this. In that important respect, this profile series is a testament to Indigenous resilience and hats off go to these 24 individuals who participated in this study.
