Abstract [en]

This study examines the motivations, ambitions and critical resources for entrepreneurs to succeed in nature-based businesses. The article is based on semi-structured interviews with 30 Norwegian and Swedish entrepreneurs within nature-based businesses. The result shows that strong interests and motivations drive the entrepreneurs, but that they often lack time, money or sufficient skills. Norwegian entrepreneurs often use help from support schemes, while Swedish entrepreneurs rely more on their private network. Lifestyle and using the place as a residence seem to be of great importance for strategic choices and resource combinations in the entrepreneurial initiatives. For future research, we propose more in-depth studies of the dynamics between the advisor/support system and the entrepreneur.

Studien undersøker motiver, ambisjoner og kritiske ressurser for å lykkes blant entreprenører i naturbaserte virksomheter. Artikkelen bygger på semistrukturerte intervjuer med 30 norske og svenske gründere tilknyttet naturbaserte virksomheter i Trøndelag og Jämtland. Resultatet viser at entreprenørene har sterk interesse og motivasjon, men mangler ofte ressurser som tid, penger og kunnskap. Norske entreprenører får i større grad hjelp av bedriftsrådgivere, mens de svenske søker hjelp gjennom private nettverk. Ellers ser livsstil og bosted ut til å ha stor betydning for entreprenørenes strategiske valg og ressurskombinasjoner. Forslag til framtidig forskning er å se nærmere på dynamikken mellom rådgiver/støtteapparat og entreprenør.

Abstract [en]

Nature-based businesses – such as those involving the land, forest, garden, or rural environment – are industries with significant growth potential. Female entrepreneurs within nature-based businesses are often invisible in statistics, as well as in research, since traditionally men have owned such companies. This had led to a lack of knowledge about the opportunities for women to start and run nature-based businesses. The aim of this paper was to explore the ambition, working conditions, and life situation for female entrepreneurs within nature-based businesses in sparsely populated areas of Sweden. Interviews were carried out with 18 female entrepreneurs within nature-based businesses in Sweden. One conclusion that was drawn from this study is that women within this industry are mainly pulled into entrepreneurship, that is, the entrepreneurship is opportunity based. Four different types of entrepreneurs were identified based on their ambitions when it comes to time spent in business and the degree of innovation. This study shows that it is often difficult to achieve profitability in a company, and the female entrepreneurs highlight that that self-employment implies hard but rewarding work. The findings of this study can be used by public actors in the design of support systems for female entrepreneurs in nature-based businesses.

Abstract [sv]

Gröna näringar ses som en bransch där tillväxtpotentialen är stor (Tillväxtanalys, 2016). Såväl kvinnor som män är aktiva inom denna näring, men kvinnorna är osynliga i statistik såväl som i forskning. Tidigare studier visar på att kvinnors arbetsliv inom de gröna näringarna är tätt sammanflätat med familjelivet (Caballé, 1999; Sattler Weber 2007). Till exempel visar SCB:s tidsanvändningsundersökning (2012) att kvinnor lägger ner betydligt mer tid på hemarbete jämfört med männen. Kvinnor kompenserar den ökade belastningen i hemmet genom att minska ner den betalda förvärvstiden vilket leder till att de har mindre timmar att lägga på verksamheten (Jennings and McDougald, 2007; Robb and Watson, 2012). Det finns stora skillnader i arbetslivet för företagare inom gröna näringar jämfört med andra typer av företagare. En skillnad är att många ärver sitt företagande (gården), en annan är den tätt sammanflätande livssituationen som denna näring innebär. Kvinnor drivs av att få vara flexibla och att självständigt få styra över sin tid, dessa kvinnor ser en fördel med att vara företagare. Tidigare forskning visar dock att kvinnor, i en högre utsträckning än män, föredrar att vara anställda än att vara egna företagare (SOU 2005:66). Inom de gröna näringarna, där kvinnor i stor utsträckning varit och är dolda företagare, kombinerar kvinnor sitt företagande med att ha en anställning. Med anledning av ovanstående diskussion blir syftet med studien att undersöka arbetslivets förutsättningar för företagande kvinnor inom de gröna näringarna. Forskningsfrågorna är följande: Hur driver de sina företag? På vilket sätt är deras företagande organiserat? Hur ser deras arbetssituationut? Datainsamling har skett genom intervjuer med kvinnor som är aktiva inom de gröna näringarna i Jämtlands län. Slutsatserna vi kan dra är att det finns fyra olika typer av företagare, med skilda förutsättningar för hur deras arbetsliv samt livssituation ser ut.

Abstract [en]

Previous results on growth in women’s businesses indicate that employment growth require time and that growth ambitions change over time. Time aspects has however only to a minor extent previously been studied despite the fact that it was required already twenty years ago. The aim of this paper is to explore growth from a longitudinal perspective. The results is based from data that have taken place at three different times during the period 2010 to 2016. The result shows that companies with a clear and specified future growth ambition is highly significant with the companies that actually have achieved growth.
