dc.description.abstractThis exploratory study was undertaken to ascertain whether or not Snake Valley could be a field-site for research into entrepreneurial activity in rural Victoria, Australia. A document analysis methodology, focusing on the community newspaper the Snake Valley News, provided evidence of a defined community linked to innovative economic activity. We assumed that limited financial resources can be off-set by local social capital (skills, time and knowledge) given freely for societal benefit. Some social entrepreneurial activity was therefore assumed. However, the findings are only indicative and testing of for actual social entrepreneurial activity will require definitive evidence of innovation resulting in wealth creation.en_NZ
