          Abstract

          Unemployment levels in South Africa have reached astronomical levels. This has spurred the government to fund entrepreneurship initiatives such as the Enterprise and Supplier Development programmes. Thus it is vital to enable and create entrepreneurial ecosystems that attract, cultivate, and sustain entrepreneurs. This paper explores how entrepreneurial firms use external actors for value creation in an entrepreneurial ecosystem through intermediaries. The focus is on how an intermediary organisation can facilitate value co-creation. The authors present the results and findings from a case study of the Oslo Cancer Cluster incubator in Norway, and relate these findings to ecosystems management and design.

          Translated abstract

          Werkloosheidsvlakke in Suid-Afrika het astronomies verhoog. Dit het die regering aangespoor om entrepreneurskap inisiatiewe soos onderneming en verskaffer ontwikkelingsprogramme te finansier. Daarom is dit van kardinale belang om entrepreneurskap ekosisteme te skep wat entrepreneurs lok, kweek en ondersteun. Hierdie artikel ondersoek hoe entrepreneuriese maatskappye eksterne akteurs deur middel van tussengangers vir waardeskepping gebruik in 'n entrepreneuriese ekosisteem. Die fokus van die artikel is op hoe 'n tussenganger organisasie waarde mede-skepping kan fasiliteer. Die skrywers beskryf huidige resultate en bevindinge van 'n gevallestudie van die Oslo Kanker Samewerkingsgroep broeikas in Noorweë, en lei hieruit bevindinge vir ekosisteem bestuur en ontwerp af.
