This blanket characterisation is inadequate as it renders the individual Indigenous urban entrepreneur invisible and unconsidered.

dc.description.abstractThe media, academic publications and parliamentary speeches typically perceive Indigenous business enterprises as 'community' run ventures. This blanket characterisation is inadequate as it renders the individual Indigenous urban entrepreneur invisible and unconsidered.

In addition, previous published literature seems skewed towards the rural or remote areas when in fact, almost three-quarters of Indigenous Australians live in urban areas. Little is known of the individual, urban and provincial Indigenous Australian entrepreneur.
