Abstract

Entrepreneurship with disability is now a significant concern from a number of different policy perspectives in all economies: promoting entrepreneurship among the disabled groups, preventing social exclusion, and narrowing the gap in employment rates between disabled people and the rest of the population of the country. A number of studies of disabled people’s employment have highlighted self-employment could be an important source of paid work but very few have focused specifically on entrepreneurial propensity with resources-based view (RBV). Consequently, although it is clear that a significant proportion of disabled people are self-employed in many countries, little is known about who they are, what kind of resources they have, and the earnings they derive from entrepreneurship process. The association between entrepreneurship and disability still is uncertain. Moreover, the disabled entrepreneur’s level of ownership of capital resources in the form of human, social and financial capitals in their own business is unclear. With this in view, there is a need to investigate the relationship of capital resources and the self- employed disabled for developing a better entrepreneurship economy. This paper is exploratory in nature, takes a positivist stance, and aims to add explanatory knowledge to the field of disabled entrepreneurship at the UK which could be also supportive for new policy entrepreneurship research in the field Bangladesh in near future
