Enterprising Regions Joep, Luuk and Ine blog 3 week 49

Hello everyone, This blog is to give you another update about the research we work on for enterprising regions. Last week we did three interviews with entrepreneurs from Indonesia, two men and one woman. They were all very kind and willing to share there experience. The language barrier and the fact that internet fell of some times made the interviews a little bit harder then normal. However we did manage to get the answers we would like to have. This week was all about transcribing the interviews and writing our individual analyses. We all took one interview and worked it out. At first the plan was to have four interviews, however, it is very hard to find people in Indonesia that are entrepreneurs, are willing to help us and have the time to help us. So, in the end I think we can be very happy that we have managed to arrange three interviews. For me personally I really liked this part of the assignment, having an insight in an other culture and talking to entrepreneurs on the other side of the world is something I normally never do. I was a little bit nervous at the start of the interviews but they were very kind and very helpful. In the rest of this week we had some brainstorm sessions. We thought about how we can implement all the elements into a our full paper. Also we already discussed something about the presentations,  for example what we are going to implement in the powerpoint. Next week we will work further on this subject, for now we wish everybody a lovely weekend. Joep, Luuk and Ine
