Pursuing the right opportunities: the actor-opportunity nexus and new venture performance

The project aims to explain how Australians who are currently involved in setting up new business ventures can be more successful. Based on a study of new ventures in Australia’s mining industry, researchers expect to demonstrate that the key to success lies in a complex matching process between the actor involved and the opportunity they are pursuing.
