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

Pursuing the right opportunities

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.
