Special Issue on: "Non-Financial Capital"

Guest Editor:
Professor Yaron Zelekha, Ono Academic College, Israel

Light and Dana (2013) suggest that social capital promotes entrepreneurship only when supportive cultural capital is in place. They conclude: “As a result, the existing entrepreneurs’ social networks are inadvertently closed to nascent entrepreneurs from the wrong side of the ethno-racial divide, frustrating their entrepreneurship. Our results have implications for a broad range of situations involving entrepreneurship or the lack of it among propinquitous ethno-religious or ethno-racial groups in the developed as well as in the developing world (Light and Dana, 2013, p. 618)” This special issue welcomes further research on these issues.
