The Emerging Workforce of Entrepreneurs with Disabilities: Preliminary Study of Entrepreneurship in Iowa by Peter David Blanck( Book )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Iowa's emerging workforce of entrepreneurs with disabilities and the design of Iowa's Entrepreneurs with Disabilities (ewd) program were examined in an exploratory study. The study focused on the following issues: organizational characteristics of the ewd program; the characteristics of ewd applicants and their motivations for choosing self-employment; the impact of disability on potential success as an entrepreneur; the impact of participation in the ewd program; and questions for future study of entrepreneurs with disabilities. Data were collected from the following sources: (1) a literature review; (2) a review of Iowa's ewd program and its policies and procedures; (3) an analysis of more than 500 ewd program applications, and (4) telephone interviews with a stratified subsample of 30 ewd participants. Of the 30 ewd applicants interviewed, 25 (83%) reported having had incomes before the onset of their disability (median pre-disability income, $25,000). The following were among the recurrent themes mentioned by the interviewees: the economic implications of self-employment; independence and commitment to self-employment; health care and insurance needs associated with self-employment; encountering discrimination before and after self-employment; and the challenges of staying self-employed. The summary form of the structured and open-ended interview questions is appended. (Contains 299 footnotes.) (Mn)
