Jared Harrison

The University of Sydney Business School

Jared is Associate Lecturer in Social Enterprise and a PhD candidate at the University of Sydney Business School. His research looks at the development of Indigenous social enterprises, how these create value for their communities and the tensions that arise from entrepreneurial activity across multiple cultural contexts. He is particularly interested in the rise of Indigenous native grains production, how enterprise can best act to revive ancient culture for modern prosperity and the wider implications for Australian agriculture and food security.

Jared lectures in the Business School’s social entrepreneurship and innovation units of study in the Master of Commerce, the Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Advanced Studies programs. Jared also manages the Business School’s key Indigenous community engagement initiative, the Remote and Rural Enterprise (RARE) Program and is involved in various University initiatives related to teaching innovation, work integrated learning and Indigenous engagement strategies.
