Institutional entrepreneurship in the Ethiopian coffee industry

Abstract

This paper explores the underlying public entrepreneurship in the coffee industry in Ethiopia. It investigates the concept of political innovation in a public sector entrepreneurship agenda, in the context of work exploring the employment of entrepreneurship by the state as a economic and social development strategy in post–socialist countries such as China (Curtis, 2011) and Poland (Curtis et al., 2010). The case study confirms other research on post–socialist economies but indicates the risks of participation in commodity markets, rather than shaping long–term markets (Mazzucato, 2011), and being subjected to the turmoil of unregulated markets, rather than mastering of them.
