Target Audience

The manuscript target market is for both academics and professionals globally. Given the increased attention paid to entrepreneurship, SDGs, and halal economy during contemporary times, we anticipate interest among different audience types.  This includes students and professors of entrepreneurship, entrepreneurs, professionals, policymakers, the general public, and libraries. While a few articles have appeared on entrepreneurship, sustainable development, and halal economy, we are unaware of any manuscript published on the theme. Thus, being one of the first manuscripts on entrepreneurship, sustainable development, and halal economy, we expect no or little competition.
