The Roots of the Domain of Entrepreneurship Research
2006 (English)In: DIME Workshop on Technological Opportunities & Entrepreneurship.: Gothenburg, Sweden, May, 2006., 2006Conference paper (Other (popular scientific, debate etc.))
The rapidly growing domain of entrepreneurship has lacked a clear statement of fundamental assumptions to guide theoretical development. In this paper, we delineate a set of assumptions about the individual we see as central to the domain and the development of theory that is distinct and consistent across various branches and applications. We suggest that a set of commonly accepted assumptions that harmonizes with the phenomena under study is of critical importance for entrepreneurship to develop into a distinct and vigorous domain of social science.
