Enterprising Teenagers and Criminal Enterprises in London

  • Case
  • Teaching Notes
Abstract

Most teenagers aspire to make money, and common business enterprises such as a paper route (or round) can offer not only a financial incentive but early business skills in customer relationship management and negotiations. In some communities such as North East London, in the UK, options for young entrepreneurs may be influenced by gang activity, and the crime around gang members can have an impact on teen business ventures, along with the entrepreneurs’ emotional well-being. This case interrogates the travails of an enterprising teenager who starts a paper route, and then must juggle the issues of family, education, and entrepreneurship in a neighbourhood debilitated by gangs and crime.
