Author:Akeredolu-Ale, E.O.
Periodical:The Nigerian Journal of Economic and Social Studies
Geographic term:Nigeria
Subject:black entrepreneurs
Abstract:Three principal categories of factors have determined the evolution of private indigenous entrepreneurship in Nigeria after 1945: history, individual-personal attributes, extra-individual-personal factors. This paper explores the relationship between each of certain key extra-individual personal factors: capital ('venture' and 'working'), expatriate competition, organizational form of indigenous companies, and group properties of the indigenous entrepreneurial Úlite - on the one hand and their performance on the other. The data used come from a 1968-70 survey of 52 fully Nigerian owned private limited liability companies each of which is located in the Lagos State as now politically defined and engages in entrepreneurial activities.
