Collective approaches to portfolio entrepreneurship are examined in case studies of six family business groups in Honduras.

Members of the 'family in business' approach the opportunity stages of the entrepreneurial process as an entrepreneurial team. Families in business seek and evaluate opportunities to match the interests and aptitudes of members of the family entrepreneurial team. The entrepreneurial team for each opportunity is formed from a closed group of family members who are committed to being in business together in the long term. The family entrepreneurial team have a collectivist approach to opportunities and resources. The importance of examining entrepreneurship and family businesses in alternative contexts, such as Latin America, is argued. The implications highlight the relevance of the family in business as a unit of analysis for researchers, practitioners and policy makers.",
