Abstract (type = abstract)
This dissertation examines the implemented strategy differences between entrepreneurial actors with different status positions embedded in socially stratified environmental contexts. Using a three study-model, I empirically examine my theory that groups of actors embedded within the same context but holding different status positions within it will develop different organizational identities and engage in divergent entrepreneurial strategies based on their differential access to resources for their entrepreneurial ventures. I find that differences are evident in the implementation of strategic actions between groups of enterprises primarily composed of actors with divergent status positions. These differences are manifest in their primary entrepreneurship types, value creation emphases (social or economic), and social interest orientations, as demonstrated in study one; in their social issue emphases strategies, as demonstrated in study two; and in their decisions to engage in entrepreneurship and their responses to economic adversity, as demonstrated in study three. Each of these studies supports the central proposition of this dissertation that stratification as an environmental context and the status positions it assigns to groups of entrepreneurial actors produces heterogeneous entrepreneurial strategies.
