The translation of an incubator
Paper i proceeding, 2010

This paper reviews a social entrepreneurial initiative to set up a solarpowered incubator in Uganda, initiated by a group of entrepreneurship students, based in Sweden. Using an ActorNetwork Theoryinformed approach, it surveys how the original aims of the project shifted as it moved from Sweden to Uganda, securing new allies and resources. The paper thus concerns itself with spatial aspects of social entrepreneurial projects, notably how space matters when construing the means by which entrepreneurship is to be fostered. It also raises the issue of whether the incubatorasweknowit is a suitable model for the generation of economic activity in lowincome countries.
