Synopsis

In Multipreneurship: Diversification in Times of Crisis, Nick Harkiolakis argues against the more commonly held view that diversification at the level of the individual entrepreneur, rather than that of the established corporation, is the wrong business strategy to pursue in times of economic crisis. He contends that entrepreneurship always proves, in almost every circumstance and every part of the world, to be a way out of economic straits and it is widely accepted as the primary force that helps produce self-sufficiency, social inclusion, job creation, capital formation, and skills acquisition. Threats to job stability in today's economic climate are expected to trigger latent entrepreneurship that could lead to re-investment of social capital to generate financial capital. Cash nowadays might not be the main value-added commodity. In an information society some of the basic ingredients of successful entrepreneurship, such as confidence and social capital might be equally important. Contrary to received wisdom in relation to SME diversification, the ability to run a group of businesses as a profit ecosystem rather than business units might prove to be beneficial in volatile economic times. If conditions improve one can always focus on growth of the most profitable and promising units. Yet in unstable economic times, resorting to back-up alternatives away from the mainstream business of organizations might be a solution to sustainable development.

Nicholas Harkiolakis is Senior Vice President, Executive Coaching Consultants and leads negotiations between the European Commission and Technology consortia he represents. Dr Harkiolakis has 25 years' experience as a technology educator and practitioner. He has served as a project manager on information technology projects and taught IT and Research Methods to undergraduate and graduate business students. He is currently a Research Fellow at Brunel University Business School in the UK. He teaches e-Negotiations at the Normandy School of Business in France and his research interests embrace social networks mining and analysis, e-business and e-commerce, IT management and strategy, business intelligence, and optimization. Dr Harkiolakis has authored or co-authored several books, including e-Negotiations for Gower.
