What is it about?
The process of starting up a new business venture is a key time to be identifying business assets and building credibility and authority within the market. This article provides a theoretical framework for how to best utilise business assets - economic, cultural, social and symbolic capitals - in order to effectively establish a business. The research focuses on how to construct a 'strategic fit' between the entrepreneur and the industry, by making the most of these assets, combining them, and utilising them in different and diverse contexts in order to maximise business advantage.
