    by Nelson King 
    Abstract: The termination of operations in the sugarcane industry of St. Kitts and Nevis in 2005 was a shock and economic setback for all employees.

A qualitative, multiple case study was conducted to explore how these female farmers perceive their livelihood transitions from the closure of the sugarcane industry 10 years ago to todays job market.

  • Impact of incubators on social entrepreneurship intention: an empirical study related to Tunisia   Order a copy of this article
    by Ines BEN CHIKHA, Anis JARBOUI 
    Abstract: In the recent years, social entrepreneurship is considered as a solution to minimize social, environmental and economic problems. In order to know how to stimulate social entrepreneurship, the current study focuses on the formation of social entrepreneurial intention based on partial least squares structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM). Our empirical research, which utilizes 209 Tunisian who pursue incubators programs, showed that the incubators positively influence the perception of the desirability and feasibility. Indeed, the awakening positively influences the desirability. The network integration, the availability of resources, the learning and the psychological support have a positive impact on the feasibility. In addition, the desirability and feasibility positively act on the social entrepreneurial intention. Therefore, it is important to promote the incubators that participate in boosting social entrepreneurship since they can act in the promotion of this kind of entrepreneurship and in the emergence of social projects by acting on the entrepreneurial intention.
