This project examines opportunities for entrepreneurial activity among mature-age people, those who are 50 years or older. It is a partnership between the City of Unley and researchers, Dr Sanjee Perera, Dr Shruti Sardeshmukh and Professor Carol Kulik, from the Centre for Workplace Excellence (UniSA Business). The project is supported by an Age Friendly SA Grant from the Office for Ageing Well, SA Health.

We are investigating community attitudes towards entrepreneurial activity among people who are 50 years or older. We aim to identify resources and support they need to engage in entrepreneurial activity. When you think of entrepreneurial activity, you might first think of an inventor working alone to start a for-profit business. But entrepreneurial activity can mean much more than that. Entrepreneurial activity can include any activity that involves identifying a need, taking initiative, and making a difference in the community.

This project has been approved by UniSA Business Negligible Risk Ethics Committee (Ethics Protocol No. 89-2020). If you have any ethical concerns about the project or questions about your rights as a participant, please contact the Chair of this Committee, Associate Professor Sharp (Rosemary.Sharp@unisa.edu.au).

If you would like more information about the project or about your participation, please email Dr Sanjee Perera at sanjee.perera@unisa.edu.au or call 8302 7755.

Please complete the survey by 30 November 2020.

The project is starting with a survey to identify people’s views on enterprise later in life. We would love to hear your views, regardless of whether this is something you would personally consider.
