Cs of the Community of Practice for Caribbean Immigrant Entrepreneurs

collaboration, cooperation, curiousity, co-creation, creativity, curiosity, The Community of Practice for Caribbean Immigrant Entrepreneurs

We decided to share the Cs of the CoP as presented on the Magate Wildhorse Facebook Page for readers not on Facebook―though you can access it whether or not you are signed into Facebook.

The CoP Challenge towards Greater Cooperation and Creativity

The nature and circumstances under which The Community of Practice for Caribbean Immigrant Entrepreneurs (The CoP) came to be, and its unique opportunities and challenges― as well as that of its members, potential members, partners, and supporters requires that it operates back and forth along the collaboration to cooperation continuum.

In so do doing, it will be best able deliver its vision and mission ―given, its hybrid form, structure, and its ambitions, related to good, emergent, novel, and even best practices.

Within that structure, and substructures for working on individual projects, for projects members will partner to deliver, for CoP and partner projects we expect to move to the C of creativity. But collaboration will be another big C for long time until the targeted beneficiaries of the CoP have overcome some of the barriers and challenges that it aims to overcome.

Some best practices and coordination will be involved as we organize, plan, and deliver structured components of our programme.

We look forward to endless curiosity from members and in particular members in the core and shaper categories.

Lessons from Jarche and the different blend of The CoP given, its unique hybrid of a Community of Practice.

Participation: Europe, Asia, Africa, Caribbean, North America, Pacific

Purpose: The Community of Practice for Caribbean Immigrant Entrepreneurs aims to connect entrepreneurs, consultants, and providers of professional services (solopreneurs, individual consultants, and businesses with 2 or more members of staff) to a connected diasporic market, learning, networks, networking, financing, and opportunities to co-create and gain mastery of business know-how.

The goal is to create that safe space for meeting of minds, markets, resource sharing, research, learning, support, knowledge transfer, building of social capital, collaboration, cooperation, and creativity for accelerating the growth of Caribbean immigrant entrepreneurs. Two-way learning and growth between diaspora and home countries and increased member capacity to create jobs for Caribbeans by Caribbeans are also among the expect results of The CoP.

You know what you need most? You know what exist in your neck of the woods. You also know what is missing most, and what you would most love to see changed.  In addition, we would be delighted to have your contribution to shaping a CoP initiative that is currently in its infancy.

By participating in this focus group consultation, you’re helping to shape The CoP. But more than that you are helping to improve and ensure its relevance and offer.  The information that you share will serve to help our people to succeed in creating a more inclusive entrepreneurship space for themselves. You are also helping to create a more supporting environment for your business, and most of all you are helping peoples of the Caribbean and their peers to benefit from their right to economic freedom. Your host country will also be rewarded by your role in helping your immigrants who share your roots to make a bigger and better contribution to their societies.  You’ll also find out who are the members of The CoP Steering Committee.

The CoP presents an opportunity to demonstrate our symbols of freedom; and ability to attain social and economic progress in large numbers―across vast geographic areas. Our ability to contribute to home and host countries, as well as to share that with non-Caribbean members such as African-Americans, Africans at home and in the diaspora, Canadians with no history of family business, and immigrant entrepreneurs who are not native speakers of English. It presents a terrific opportunity to overcome the barriers of “foreignness”, lack of entrepreneurial experience, and more.

Stakeholder Invitation: Born Global & Born-Again Global Businesses―South Africa

focus group women-led management consulting businesses South Africa SMEs small medium sized enterprises

You are invited to participate in a focus group consultation with women-led entrepreneurs and professional service providers in the management consulting sector (Including international development consultants).

Deadline extended

Registration has been extended to January 25, 2019

Dates: December 13- 29, 2018

Time:  10:00 am – 11: 30: am | 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm | 2:00 pm – 3: 3:30 pm    | 12:00 noon – 1:30 pm | 5:00 pm – 6: 30 pm (SAST)

Time Commitment: 45 mins to 1 ½ hours

Location: To be provided by Email upon receipt of R.S.V.P.

Participation: South Africa

Objectives:

  1. To identify what factors, influence the decision of leaders of South African women-led management consulting businesses to sell their services abroad (Internationalize).
  2. To better understand the pathways and process they use to service markets or customers who are not residents of South Africa.
  3. To find out how local, diaspora, and other foreign networks influence and accelerate the internationalization process of small and medium sized management consulting firms in South Africa.
  4. To better understand the role of networks in increasing available financing, by-passing geographic border restrictions, firm capacity in terms of human capital, and technology.
  5. To determine what role if any networks play in helping with market and customer identification, size of earnings, and the growth trajectory of sales.
  6. From the discussions we also hope to learn about the role of other foreign and local networks in facilitating internationalization and the scaling-up of the born global firms versus born-again global firms (Those business who intended to export since inception versus those who decided to benefit from exporting at a later stage in the life of the organization).

The consultations are a part of a larger research that is intended to provide new knowledge and important insights into the process of internationalization.  It also aims to understand the impact of networks (including diaspora connections, suppliers, partners, customers, and other social connections) on the process and outcomes of internationalization among women-led management consulting firms in South Africa.

It is our hope that the findings will inform decision-making for improving the support given to entrepreneurs as well as to help women entrepreneurs to take actions for accelerating the pace of growth of their businesses.

To compensate you for your time, we will provide you with a copy of the research finding.  And a chance to win a free pass to one of our upcoming educational events.
