Ent educators ztb 2011 Presentation Transcript

  • 1. From music student to creative entrepreneur: multiple paths, complex journeys
    Zuleika Beaven
    MMU Centre for Enterprise
  • 2. Outline of the Study
    PhD title “Entrepreneurial & Creative Identity in Nascent Musician-Entrepreneurs”
    Drawing on nascent entrepreneurship and identity literature
    2 year tracking study with 12 music graduates / nascent musician-entrepreneurs (10 completed)
    Recruited in later stages of degrees: 9 as undergrads, 3 as postgrads
    5 interviews each at approx. 6 monthly intervals
    Used a combination of discourse and re-storying qualitative approaches
  • 3. Real-time nascency – an under-researched area
    Nascency studies tend to be retrospective with “successful” entrepreneurs
    Selection bias
    Construction of success
    Over-simplification of journey
    Real time study has:
    Included “failed” entrepreneurs
    Captured messiness & cyclical nature of process
    Allowed reflection
  • 4. The Participants
    Range of genres: classical, popular, folk
    First study: voice, guitar, double bass, flute, trombone, recorder, harp, percussion
    24 Ventures: ensembles, bands, opera company, agency, education companies, composition
    21-35 years old
    5 women, 7 men
  • 5. Journeys - the basics
    Participants
    Most (8) of remaining participants still nascents
    Only 1 has exited the process
    Only 1 is now established with no nascent ventures at all
    Ventures
    50% (12) of ventures no longer in existence,
    But overwhelmingly, been replaced by new ventures
    Multiple reasons – but not “failure”
  • 6. Journeys – rich stories
    Non-linear path through nascency
    Complex interplay between creative (musician) identity & entrepreneurial identity
    Dynamic process
    Creative integrity
    Conflicts and congruences
  • 7. Journeys – rich stories (2)
    Enterprising careers and non-enterprising jobs
    Changing goals and values
    Limited attachment to individual ventures
    Pragmatic entrepreneurship
    Pragmatic ventures
    Learning from experience, not failure
    Changing accounts of attitude to reward
