South Australia’s entrepreneurial ecosystem: Voice of the customer research report

Alan O'Connor, Gerard Reed

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


In 2016, South Australia (SA) will lose the last major automotive manufacturer in the state; General Motors Holden. Far from being complacent, much energy is being placed into stimulating new industry sectors and one initiative is concerned with developing the entrepreneurial ecosystem. This report details research associated with this initiative that was designed to identify opportunities that may exist to assist and develop the diversity of the Adelaide Entrepreneurial Ecosystem (AEE).

The research explores the possibility that support may be potentially derived from the public sector to be placed strategically to assist and nurture the organic nature of the AEE. The research was deliberate in its attempt to hear from entrepreneurs who had experienced or are experiencing Adelaide’s entrepreneurial ecosystem for better or for worse.
